Myrtle Beach, SC |
My insurance contracts with this office. I scheduled an appointment on the phone and gave my insurance info. I was told my insurance was accepted. When I got there I was told they do not accept my insurance. I called my insurance company from the office. Was told they do contract with this office. The lady Joanne was very ignorant and told me I should get better insurance. Never did see the doctor. I suggest going elsewhere.

Dr. Leak took on the challenge of restoring function to my disabled hand. His expertise, along with extensive physical therapy, has given me back 80% use of my hand and I no longer feel disabled.

Trigger Finger. Dr. Leak is always a pleasure to see. He is so knowledgeable and very easy to talk with.

I fell and completely broke my elbow. Dr. Leak did an excellent surgery as attested to by my friends who are doctors. The bones came together perfectly. As he stated, I will get back most of my mobility. He is also a very pleasant man who was always a pleasure to see. I highly recommend him for any arm or hand problem you have.
