I am a Family Physician. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Leng's evaluation of my patient's multiple neurological symptoms. He addressed all of my patient's symptoms in one initial visit even though I referred my patient to see him for only one problem. He explained the probable cause (s) of each problem in details and ordered the appropriate work up. In reading his notes, I know that he is a very knowledgeable and dependable Doctor. Dr. Lwng, thank you for your excellent care/ services.

Dr. Leng performed a craniotomy on my husband in September of 2016. He has been completely professional without lacking in being personable. We have complete trust in his abilities and his advice. He has stayed on as a sort of 'coach' in my husband's care even though the neuro-oncologist is now the primary care giver. He is the only one of the team of physicians who has offered us complete acces in times of crisis or pending crisis. I am truly grateful for all he has done.

Amazing experience considering the circumstances ( paralyzed from chest down prior to surgery). Dr Leng is very personable and fun to visit, and as far as I know, performed the surgery on my spine flawlessly.
