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.
