Dr. Leathers is a well-educated and kind man who's specialty transcends any type of medical procedure he is so excellent at performing. I have been going to see Dr. Leather Sr. for years and I continue to be wholeheartedly impressed with his skill level and gentle demeanor. His medical assistant Laurie, is a wonderful compliment to his reliable and dependable practice. 5 stars doesn't come close!!

Stay clear of him! The first visit is the longest (10 minutes) and subsequent visits are no more than 5-6 (I timed it). It’s a money mill as he owns the practice so, if you even want decent and respectful treatment, you’d better have great insurance. He is a horrid man who hides behind a deceitful smile. He could care less about you or your livelihood. Sad but true. Feel free to message me regarding my experience.
