      We have a very medically complex child and Dr. Leonard did a superb job involving 30 hours of open heart surgery to fix our sons condition; He always remained calm and professional and truly cares for the patient and family. He saved our sons life and is the best cardiac surgeon our son has had over the past 19 years.

      Dr. Leonard performed open heart surgery on my daughter Lacey 11 years ago at Dallas Children's Medical Center. Lacey has Down Syndrome and had Tetrology of Fallot. Dr. Leonard was the only dr who gave our baby girl a chance to survive. He promised me that no matter what he would make sure I was there with my sweet girl either to say goodbye or to see her start her life with a healed heart. God and Dr. Leonard fixed our sweet girl and she has been perfect and pink ever since. We are so grateful!

      He performed open heart surgery on my infant son successfully multiple times, he is a saint! I thank God for him everyday, because without him I wouldn't have my child thriving everyday :) He is the BEST

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Leonard's Care Philosophy

      We understand that when a child is ill, the entire family is affected. So we believe our responsibility is not only to the child, but also to mom and dad, siblings, grandparents and anyone closely involved in our patient's care. As a team, we've dedicated our hands and mind even our own hearts toward creating an environment of health and healing for children with heart defects. This means keeping a family together in the hospital and providing support services to ease the burdens of illness
