I was so pleased when I went into labor and found out that Dr. Leight was the OB on call. She is a wonderful doctor. She makes sure to take her time and makes it top priority that you are comfortable during the entire delivery process. If I have anymore children I can only hope she will be the one...more

Dr.Leight is the best doctor I have ever seen! She cares about her patients and took very good care of me when I had my daughter and when I had surgery while being pregnant. She has such a kind heart.

I have never been more pleased with a doctor, for the first time I felt like I was given the time and attention to explain symptoms. Dr. Leight is amazing, I wish she was a primary care physician!
