My husband underwent emergency brain tumor surgery. Unfortunately, the incision was not completely closed or expeditiously corrected. As a result of this occurrence, my husband suffered irreparable harm! The end result, meningitis, a stroke, and hydrocephalus now stabilized by a permanently, installed shunt. The lack of empathy and dismissiveness displayed by Dr. Leiphart was appalling! As were his efforts to correct his surgical error. Research of physicians is an invaluable resource!

Dr. Leiphart performed a discectomy on my L5-S1. After a year of pain, I'm a week out from the surgery and pain free.

I had a C2 fracture to my neck in a car accident and was in a neck brace. The neck brace was so that I didn't turn or bend my neck so it could heal, but he said I could drive a car if I wanted to, which made no sense fro obvious safety reasons. He seemed mean spirited and no compassion. I had a large bump on the back of my neck and he would not touch it/me. He brushed off my concerns and was useless when I asked him anything. I need a 2nd opinion because this guy is idiot or doesn't care.
