Patient Comments (2)
Long Beach, CA |
Never wait less than 2hrs. have waited up to 4 hrs. several times. They don't answer phone, only tell you via automated message to call back if they don't return your call. Have to call many times to even get a call back. She is ALWAYS late. Provides no in office services. You will have to go elsewhere to get blood drawn etc. The offices are nice. She really cares and will spend as long as you require with you. That is hard to find. It can be difficult to keep her focused.

Dr. Leech is extremely knowledgable and thorough. I respect her knowledge and compassionate care. As if that isn't enough, her office staff is wonderful as well!
