Dr. Robert H. Leland, MD says

While my staff and I strive to have all my patients be "happy" this is not necessarily an attainable goal. My practice involves many complex orthopaedic foot and ankle problems, many which have already had multiple previous failed surgeries elsewhere. Like any tertiary care practice, this can pose challenges. I am truthful with my patients and am not one to "sugar coat" a difficult situation

in Westminster, CO |
He does amazing ankle reconstruction and calf extensions. He is an up front doctor about everything and lays out all the options for you before surgery. His assistant Kerri works wonderful with him and helping appointment's go smoothly. If issues come up with surgery he will get you in right away to make sure things are alright and get fixed. He deals with people who had surgeries done wrong first time and makes it better than better but amazing.

Dr. Leland took time to examine all symptoms/issues and explore all alternatives. Have been extremely satisfied by the surgery that was performed 3 years ago in Denver and has healed really well. Due to extremely poor quality of doctors in Dallas I traveled for my post op appointments and continue regular followups to Dr. Leland in Denver. I was anxious about the surgery on both my legs but have been extremely happy with the outcome. I can now easily run 7 miles where even a mile was painful.
I'm thrilled that you're doing so well. It's very satisfying that you've been able to get back to your active lifestyle. Thanks for your kind comments.
Denver, CO |
Poor communication, incomplete instructions, showed little interest, hardly looked or addressed the situation, spent hardly any time, did not order pro op exam
I'm sorry that you were unhappy with your experience. I strive to thoroughly educate each patient about their condition and am uncertain why you were left feeling that your concerns weren't adequately addressed
Dr. Leland performed a complex surgery on my ankle and I have had a great outcome. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure both pre and post-op and my expected recovery.
Thank you for your kind comments. With complex problems requiring surgery, communication is extremely important. I try my best to insure that my patients are well informed throughout the process.

Dr. Leland says..

I have extensive experience as a fellowship trained orthopedic specialist treating both routine and complex problems. I have been a tertiary care referral source for the Rocky Mountain region for diagnosing and providing non operative and operative treatment options since 2001, having been in practice since 1997. I am committed to pursuing all viable non operative treatment options before recommending surgery to my patients.
