From the very visit, which we thought would just be a 2nd opinion to confirm a diagnosis and treatment plan, Dr. Leonard, Rachel and all the office staff were friendly, supportive and made you feel right at ease.

I can't say enough good things about Dr Leonard and his team. At such a scary time they provided me with comfort and professional care I don't think I could've gotten anywhere else. I'm so grateful for their continued support even after my surgery.

Highly recommend Dr Leonard. His skill with my spine has been flawless. 1st fusion lasted 10 years. 2nd fusion went 2 years... I had a tree fall on me and ruined his good work. With his positive encouragement, I have good years ahead of me. Thank you so much for fixing my broken body... 3 times.
