Would highly recommend Dr. Leong for knee replacement. Had my knee replaced on June 2nd and am more than pleased with results. I was most impressed with Dr. Leong when he came in before I went to surgery and asked if we could pray. I knew then I had nothing to worry about.

I have been going to Dr Leong for about 8 years now. He is awesome! Recently had total knee replacement and I wouldn’t even think of anyone else doing my surgery. He and his staff are very caring, patient and helpful. Definitely the Doctor I would recommend for any Orthopedic needs!

Arthroscopic shoulder surgery, May 2021. Procedure was exactly as he described, He was attentive and thorough in his explanations. Very short waiting, once we arrived at the surgery center. His bedside manner before surgery was very soothing, and he shows that he really cares about his patients. Only required 4 stitches to close. Stitches removed in a week. Minimal pain, and a short recovery period; six weeks later, zero pain. Would highly recommend for orthopedic surgery.

I have always enjoyed walking and exercising and working in my yard but my bad knees made all these activities painful and restrictive. Dr. Leong and his staff replaced both of my knees and I feel liberated. I can enjoy all these activities again. I appreciate their professionalism and kindness and friendship.

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.

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.
