He is knowledgeable, he does many different treatments along with medication. He makes me feel that he knows my condition and puts together a plan to address all areas. I would differently recommend Dr. Leo. Auer Young

I've had chronic pain and migraines for over a decade now and have multiple pain management doctors. After the doctor office that I went to for the 1st six years closed down, I was forced to find a new doctor. Dr Leo immediately came up with a game plan and we have been following it ever since. Now, he does run behind sometimes and waiting for an appointment can take up to an hour but that is because he spends additional time with each patient. It's always worth the wait. I've had a long run and between Dr Leo and my Primary Care physician, I know I am in good hands.
