I went to Dr Leo for my back problems and I learned so much! He told me things that no other Dr, in my 25 years of back pain, has ever told me! Now I feel that I'm getting somewhere with my pain and issues. Thank you so much Dr Leo!

Have been treated by Dr Leo since 2010. Though NINE Cervical/Lumbar surgeries Dr Leo has managed my pain with medication but mainly his excellent ability to determine where my pain is coming from and performing different injections. His knowledge and expertise has allowed this 71 year old dude to live and function through those 9 surgeries. Have a final surgery scheduled for 6/15/21. I feel confident he will handle my pain following surgery & during rehab physical therapy. His office assistant Cari is awesome. She is always ready to help any way she can. Has been a godsend to me. I'm not typical patient. I'm needy and difficult at times but she is always thoughtful, accountable, and pleasant to deal with. They make a great team.

Having had pumps for 22.5yrs, I have NO complaints about ANY who've cared for me as ALL have done as they saw/felt was in best interest, listening to me & letting ME guide my care/needs! I consider myself both beyond Blessed and the 'exception', as I'm 1 of the 0.05% who IMPROVED significantly after toxic materials were removed & with the help of ALL who've cared for me since, I'm on a road back to resuming life as I never imagined I'd see/live/feel it again - the future is beyond bright & will be as drug-free as my body allows!! I figure that calls for a 10 out of 10 rating!
