Went in for an annual physical. In short, the doctor came across as lazy and unconcerned. Did not perform the expected process, and when returning for blood test results, was vague and unhelpful. Further, failed to refer other specialists that were requested, failed to provide an informed analysis of blood test results, and failed to return phone calls placed to the nurse. Waste of time and money!

I was looking for a Primary Care doctor but instead I found a doctor who could care less about my health. He never examined me when I told him I had pain on my left side, which could have been a cyst on my left kidney or the left side of the sacroiliac joint. He never moved from his seat. Finally, he told me I had too many problems and he couldn't be my doctor! He shouldn't be anyone's doctor. Giving him one star is more than he deserves.

I am new to the area and had an appointment on Friday for an initial visit with his wife. Unfortunately, I had a relapse of an ongoing urinary tact infection with a lot of pain on Monday morning. They had me come in and see Dr. Lloyd Leiva. I brought the lab results from my continuing infection and told him which 3 antibiotics I had taken that had not cleared the infection. He insisted on a complete physical which was appropriate. The urinalysis in the office confirmed the infection and he gave me an antibiotic from the same family that I had taken twice unsuccessfully since the last week in August. The antibiotic did not work and I was in continued pain from the infection. I called twice on Thursday and twice on Friday begging for the results of the culture and asking for a different antibiotic. I last called at 3:45pm on Friday, stated the time and said that they would be leaving for the weekend so please call and change my antibiotic. I never got a response.

Extremely disappointed with this doctor. My elderly family member had to wait 3 weeks to get bladder infection testing and treatment ordered. Now waiting for him to sign orders for diabetic supplies sent to his office 2-28-2020. There have been other similar situations to this months prior to the Covid virus. Proceed with great caution or be a STRONG advocate for your self or person you are caring for.

I have been going to Dr. Lloyd Leiva for about 20 years. Since he opened his new practice across the street from healthcare America, wait times can be as much as an hour or more. My last two appointments I waited one hour before I walked out. My last appointment, and probably my last, is when the office manager looked at me and rolled her fists in her eyes as if to mimic a crying baby. I like Dr. Lloyd as a doctor but feel his practice is no longer within my tolerances.

During my last year with Dr Leiva I found to be very informative and helpful in maintaining my state of health and well being. He was very thorough in answering all of my questions and getting after me on some of my bad habits and why I need to make better choices . I would recommend anyone that asks me on his professionalism that he is one of the best I have ever had.

Visits are always on time, to the point and given with care and understanding. He is always ready to listen, annalise and give a no nonsense diagnosis. As a new patient four tears ago he literally saved my life by his inside judgement and prompt action. Thank you Dr. Leiva.

I would be dead if I had listened to him. His level of incompetence is shocking. His bed side manner is horrible and he has no idea how to read blood test results. If you are seeing him, I would urge you to find another physician immediately. He was disrespectful, rude, and did not listen to anything I said. He kept me waiting over an hour and a half for one of my appointments.
