Dr. Leonard, his staff and office are a first class operation. I've been going to him to the past year and had to go back due to an accident. His PA spoke to me 45 minutes about the accident and spent time with me before seeing Dr. Leonard. It took me that much time to tell what happened and here I hurt. When he did come in to see me he knew all facts. If you want top of the line medical care, medical staff, pa and 4 start service go here. His staff follows through like clockwork -n

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.

Dr Leonard and his staff, from my first surgery in 2010 until my most recent surgery in 2016, have always made me feel extremely comfortable in my major decisions by informing me of my condition as well as answering any questions that my have come up.

Very through in discussing risk verses benefits of surgery. Answered questions very well and encouraged me to ask questions. Excellent staff! All personnel were very professional and helpful. Staff is very prompt and efficient. Doctor is very kind, friendly, and takes time to answer any and all questions from both my wife and myself. .

Dr. Leonard performed my first discectomy some years ago and it was a complete success. I required another surgery for a different level and once again, Dr. Leonard corrected the problem brilliantly. I do not wish injury or surgery on anyone, but I would highly, highly, recommend Dr. Leonard for any surgery that falls in his field of expertise. He is a wonderful asset to the medical profession. Should I ever need another surgery, rest assured Dr. Leonard will be the one.

Very detailed and precise - perhaps handled things a little too quickly, but with confidence. The surgery and healing was flawless.
