I attended my first seminar yesterday at Dr. Leake’s office. I am so happy I did. Dr. Leake and her staff made the experience a very comfortable, informative, thought provoking and enjoyable experience. She made plenty of time to answer all questions and provide a deep understanding of the presented procedures. I will definitely attend future seminars that I have an interest in. There was also a wide array of food and drinks provided. Snickerdoodles and champagne-my personal favorite??

Dr. Leake left me with terrible scars from removing two moles. They are huge gashes. I have one on my stomach and one on my back. The scars were unnecessary according to other doctors I have seen. I now use a Pladtic Surgeon through the Mayo Clinic who has done a fantastic job. My new surgeon has removed moles from my back with barely any scarring. Please choose your doctors wisely.

I have seen Dr. Leake several times, and wish I could clone her for every other medical practice I might ever need. She is incredibly knowledgeable and able to explain in terms I understand. She is efficient but caring and always takes the time necessary to answer questions or explain a procedure. Her team is outstanding.

Each time I have visited Dr Leake, I have been most impressed. I always leave there with a "feel good" feeling. Definitely would recommend and wouldn't go anywhere else. She and her staff are so pleasant.

I was scheduled to have a nose procedure at 8.30 am , and to take a valium 30 minutes before, the prescription which they never called in and i had to chase down the day before, . I get up very early to be there and find out after a 20 minute wait that she had an emergency patient, and would be awhile before i could see her, this from a rather fresh staff member. I got angry and asked why they didn't call. I was told i could wait without "attitude",and then she refused to see me at all. NASTY!

Dr. Leake is a highly skilled surgeon with a concerned and highly competent staff. My results have been excellent. The experience was gentle, thorough and compassionate. I cannot recommend Dr. Leake and her staff highly enough.
