45 minute wait and 4 minutes with him. He tried to walk out of the room while I was still trying to ask a question. He didn't want to actually figure out my problem, just prescribe a slightly different medicine than last time. I think he just wants to churn through as many people as he can for easy money.

He told me he accepted my insurance when he didn't and then tried to charge me an insane amount for my procedures with him. Also when I had my endoscopy done with him I was still awake when he started! I was gagging like crazy! I had the same procedure done by a different doctor after my poor experience with Dr. Leichus and they thought the drugs he used were ridiculous and shouldn't have been used for this procedure. I would never recommend Dr. Leichus to anyone. He will put you at risk.

Makes it undeniably clear that he does not care the slightest bit about his patients. Would not even read my charts when checking on me in the hospital while I laid there for 6 weeks with no food waiting for him to figure out what was causing an incurable infection in my intestine. Would literally blow me off when I tried to ask him questions. Takes on more patients than he can accommodate to maximize profits. Finally had another Dr. (a NON-SPECIALIST) figure out what was wrong with me.

Had a routine colonoscopy. Only saw nurse practitioner in the office (horrible bedside manner), never met the doctor, including prior to or after the procedure. They then coded the procedure wrong so I got a $400 bill (supposed to be free). They refused to correct the coding or bill
