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
