What People Say About Dr. Donald Leopold, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Leopold performed septoplasty surgery on me 6/3/13. He thinned turbinates but failed to straighten deviated septum. In follow up visit he claimed my face is asymmetrical which is true, but then I demonstrated how my nose could have been much straighter by bending in opposite direction then waiting until it got to a much straighter position before going to its deviated position again. Breathing difficulties just as prior to procedure. His procedure was a FAILURE.

Dr. Leopold saved my life. He was a thoroughly kind, compassionate and courageous doctor with an excellent reputation. I know 2 others who went to him who were also very happy with him and very grateful to him. I'm not sure where these negative reviews are coming from but sounds like people with an axe to grind.
