Dr. LEONG did my elbow surgery in Jan.2019. He is the most pleasant and best surgeon I know! I had a ganglion cyst in elbow with torn ligament and tendon. He took out the cyst and repaired the torn ligament and tendon.I just finished therapy and doing great!.. He also did my grandsons ACL repairs in both his knees from basketball injuries. He has done great also!! So all I can end with is ... HE IS THE BEST!!!

Had to have shoulder surgery in June. Working at SRHS I was recommended to Dr Leong. He explained the surgery and answered all my questions, as this was more complicated surgery due to multiple tears, bursitis and arthritis. Two bones were also involved. I healed without complications. His RN was prompt returning calls and the PA was extremely helpful.

I have seen Dr. Leong for tennis elbow and a knee injury. He is very kind, thoughtful and thorough. I had to have arthroscopic surgery on my knee and could not be more pleased with my results! I would highly recommend Dr. Leong!

When I fell and dislocated a bone in my arm and fractured De Leong was able to see me immediately and was patient and understanding with me. He reduced in office and did it perfectly and o didn't have to have surgery. The experience of having a broken wrist was easier because of his experrie6and wonderful staff. Never waited long.

I would recommend Dr. Leong to anyone who needs Knee Replacement or their knees 'scoped'. He is kind, caring and as gentle as he can be. His office personnel and staff are neat, professional,friendly, courteous and highly efficient. I have had both knees totally replaced. I was very fearful going in, but I now wish I had done it 10 years ago.
