Dr. Leonetti is the best Doctor anyone could have. Three years ago today he operated on my ear for cancer of the external auditory canal. This is an extremely rare condition and outcomes are usually not very good. He is very knowledgeable and caring and I am so very grateful to him. He saved my life! No need to say anymore than that.

I had an ear tymeanoplasty of the ear a promised 30 minute 99% success rate. Doctor does 9 a month no problem. Hearing should improve and broken ear drum will be repaired. Hearing is gone wearing a hearing aid. Constant ringing of the ears both. Pressure is so bad on that ear it is suggested I put tubes in but that may break the ear drum. Doctor Leonetti just kept telling me to give it time that was in July of 2017. He just dismissed me.

I feel like Dr. Leonetti just dismissed me. He said that my ear, head, eye and throat pain was from a TMJ dysfunction. He never even looked at my throat, he just saw my ears looked normal. He could be right but he certainly didn't make me feel like he wanted to rule out any ENT issues being that I have had recurring ear issues. He was polite but very dismissive. I'm disappointed.

Dr. Lionetti performed surgery on my ear for a cholesteatoma removal 9 months ago. The surgery was a great success my hearing is back better than it was before surgery. He is not only an amazing surgeon he's very pleasant and explains everything so well. He only deals with ears so he is very good at what he does.

Performed a parotidectomy to remove a pleomorphic adenoma, subsequently confirmed as benign. The growth required more complicated surgery than I anticipated but all turned out well, with minimal scarring and no complications with facial nerves. He's an expert! Glad I did some research and found him.

Dr. Leonetti saved my life! At age 38 I was diagnosed with acinic cell carcinoma of the parotid gland. Turns out the tumor was wrapped around my facial nerve. Dr Leonetti was so caring during such a stressful time in my life. The most talented and professional surgeon. He is outstanding and I am so grateful I found him.

20 years ago this past May I had surgery with Dr. Leonetti. I Went to him fo a second opinion and was the best decision I ever made. From the first 10 minutes of meeting Dr. Leonetti, I was reassured that I was in the best hands ever. Dr. Leonetti gave me information of what kind of brain tumor I had and explained in detail how it will be removed and the recovery time. Amazing dr!!!

Two years ago my situation was that I had virtually no hearing in my left ear and some hearing loss in my right ear. At that time, I began having issues in my right ear and I was told that eventually, if untreated, I would probably lose hearing in my right ear. After two surgeries, my hearing in the left ear has been significantly restored and my right ear issues have been corrected. The net result is, I now hear better now than I did 2 years ago. Thank You Dr. Leonetti Robert C. Godawa

As a recent patient of Dr. John P. Leonetti, I must tell you: run don’t walk to see him! Hands down, he is the most compassionate and skilled surgeon on the planet. He monitored my case for more than a year with a diagnosis and protocol to follow which ultimately required surgery (11/30/17). His expertise in the ENT/Otolaryngology field is unparalleled. Kudos also to his great team and nurse Mary for their outstanding support. Sandy Isakson-Chicago, IL

My deepest gratitude to Dr. John Leonetti at Loyola Medical Center in Maywood., Illinois and supporting staff. Dr. Leonetti did my surgery for a cochlear implant in 2013 and am fortunate to have found him. He is a highly skilled and competent surgeon that I would recommend to anyone without reservation. considering a cochlear implant/other related surgery. He has provided me with a hearing implant that keeps me in the hearing world, saving my marriage, job and social network. Eternal gratitude..

My son has had 3 surgeries with Dr. Leonetti, his first one when he was 7 years old. I am dreading the day when he retires. He is personable--has a friendly "Packers/Bears" rivalry with my now 17 year old son--and he makes you feel like he cares about you. He's amazing.

Truly a gifted and kind physician. We were referred to him by multiple other physicians for specialized ear surgery and he restored my wife's hearing---a gift she was without for over 30 years. Excellent experience in the office and in the ambulatory surgical department. Please note that not all ENT physicians are true ear and hearing specialist. We bless him every day.

I was referred to Dr Leonetti and the moment I met him I liked him. Friendly, professional, and personality?? We discussed my concerns about resolving my hearing loss and the potential for facial paralysis. I felt very confident in my decision to schedule the surgery. Dr. Leonetti told me it would take about 5 weeks for an opening for surgery. Not a problem at all. Does someone really want a DR that has tons of openings. Love him!! Went from 20% to 100% hearing in my ear. ?

This doctor and anyone who is around him is in the best hands around. Dr. Leonetti gave a second chance at life from vertigo. By far the only doctor I would want if you have Ménière's disease. I thank him and his staff for getting me back on my feet for my family. I will forever be grateful to Dr. Leonetti and Dr. Anderson and their staff. My life will forever be changed from what I have been through, but because of my awesome doctors and awesome family I now have my life back.

Wonderful doctor. Explains everything in easy to understand language. There are large problems with checking in at the Wheaton facility. It took me over 1/2 hour just to see the lady to check in. After another 10 minute wait, I was taken into another room where they went over my medication, and I was left there for another 10 minutes before I was taken into the examination room. Once there, the doctor arrived within 5 minutes. It should not take over 45 minutes just to check in.
