Patient Comments (5)
in Chicago, IL |
I had surgery on left shoulder in Dec 2015 and Dr. Leonard explained to me it's a long process to get through. It's been 6 months now and I feel like I am doing very well. He prepared me for what to expect and he has been very accurate in the recovery time line. I have recommended Dr. Leonard to potential clients and I am very pleased with the outcome.
in Hickory Hills, IL |
Would not even see me without an Xray or MRI for my elbow on 5/9/2016. Wasted over 45min of my time and took my $30 Co-Pay without even seeing the doctor. This guy does not care about his new potential patients and recommend you find a real doctor who does.
in Williams |
I had rotator cuff repair surgery with Dr Leonard at the end of 2015. He listens well, answered all the many questions I asked, and I never felt I was being rushed. Everything from start to finish was organized and professional. I was well-informed throughout my surgery and my pre and post-ops visits. I was pleased with his office staff and my outpatient experience at Christ Hospital was also excellent. Although retirement age, in under 4 months I am back to all my pre-surgery activities.
in Tinley Park, IL |
excellent dr. for shoulder problems. he understands, listens and explains very well. i had one rotator cuff surgery a year ago with great success. am currently rehabing from his second surgery on my other shoulder; hoping and believing the results will be the same as my other arm. you'll be in good hands w/him. staff is also very excellent!
in Palos Park, IL |
He was kind, gave lots of information, answered questions. Loved the way the office scheduled appointments and was run. Seemed very organized.
