Cleveland, OH |
The absolute best doctor we have ever seen! He took care of my son who tore his ACL. Fantastic bedside manner and probably the smartest and most skilled surgeon in all of Cleveland!
Missed a fracture in my thumb and sent me for an unnecessary MRI!! Now i have to pay for that unnecessary MRI! Went 8 weeks with a fracture and now facing a lifetime of problems with my thumb! Dont recommend Dr Leland at all!!
I am very sorry you are upset. However, as I explained to you, you do not have a fracture in your thumb. Here is the official read by the radiologists of your X-rays of your hand: "IMPRESSION: No evidence of fracture or dislocation about the thumb." I also reviewed the xrays myself and there is no fracture. In addition, when we ordered the MRI because you weren't improving, the MRI also did not show any fracture in your thumb and was read by the radiologists as "no fracture."

Dr Leland and his staff provided quality care for me for my knee surgery. All aspects went well and as expected and as he explained. I would highly recommend him for your orthopaedic care.
in Chardon, OH |
Dr. Leland was friendly, professional and was obviously well versed in his specialty. My procedure was fairly simple and I felt confident Dr. Leland would take good care of me. He and his staff were excellent!!!! My recovery was as expected.
in Montville Ohio |
It was nice to see a doctor who understands my conditions and listened to what I had to say! Very nice and I didn't feel rushed when asking questions! I would recommend! ??
I am completely satisfied with my care, and would recommend Dr. Leland to anyone needing orthopedic surgery.
Twinsburg, OH |
Takes time with his patients. Explains everything he in detail of what has to be done for you. Staff and assistant are extremely pleasant and make you feel comfortable. Would definitely recommend to everyone.
in Painesville, OH |
Office staff so disrespectful I called an attorney for advice.
My office staff was only concerned about your overall health. They were absolutely doing the best for you. I'm not sure why you would contact an attorney about this but best of luck with everything going forward.
in Chardon, OH |
Dr. Leland is terrific. He's kind, patient, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. My son and I both see him for knee issues and Dr. Leland was the only physician we've ever seen who picked up on a potential serious genetic cause for these issues. We are continuing care with him and wouldn't go anywhere else! His office staff is also very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!
in Ashtabula, OH |
Had a lot of pain in my right shoulder ... and he nailed the problem and treatment in the 1st visit. Relieved my pain that visit and, with physical therapy, the follow-up visit showed great improvement. Thanks Doc!
in Chardon OH |
Waited over an hour to see the doctor, staff is not in touch with the patients, very disorganized operation
I am very sorry you had a long wait to see me. Please call my office at 440-285-5004 and ask to speak with Missy or Jeannie. They will do whatever we can to make this right and make sure you don't have to wait the next time you see me.
in Concord Township, OH |
I was impressed with his knowledge and simplicity in which he explained my condition, details and pictures of the surgery, and recovery time. I followed his post op directions to the letter and had full range of motion in my knee in less than 2 weeks. I will return for any future bone and joint issues.
in Chardon, OH |
I had right hip femoral osteoclasts with labrum repair. It got to the point where I couldn't golf nor do any heavy lifting at all. My range of motion with the inpingement was getting worse and worse. Saw Dr. Leland last year 2015 and felt very comfortable with him from the beginning. He seems very in tune and confident about his skills. We decided to do arthroscopic surgery 6 days ago and it was the best decision I could have made. Zero pain at all. In my opinion he's the man for the job!
in Painesville, OH |
Dr. Leland took as much time with my as I felt I required. He didn't rush to explain what he was going to do and what would be happening afterwards. A+ Dr. Leland!
Willoughby, OH |
It was always easy getting an appointment and he listened to what I had to say and didn't do the whole God-Doctor complex thing.
