Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Leonard "I'LL TREAT YOU LIKE FAMILY Choosing a doctor to trust with the care of your eyes, your precious sight, can be a difficult decision. You want someone board-certified, professional, and experienced. But you also want a doctor who will take the time to listen to you, explain things, and treat you with kindness and respect. I have been in practice since 1982, caring for patients with a personal touch. Whether it?s an eye exam or surgery, you?ll get the best I have to give."

It is the 8th Anniversary of my Cataract Surgery and delight in shaving my face each morning without glasses. I remember Dr. Leonard everyday with delight.
in davie fl |
I was a patient for many years and saw her in 2015 complaining of blurry vision while wearing my glasses ...she said my prescription was fine, nothing wrong with it and my eyes were fine..sorry to say i finally went to another opthamologist who told me i had cataracts in both eyes and was basically legally blind...was shocked and truly disappointed in DR Leonards iagnosis and would just say to be aware if you truly have an eye problem!
