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."
