He did a breast reduction on my friend. She was very satisfied. Dr. Leppard was a good listener and explained everything well. I thought he was very good. I highly recommend him.

I went to two other older surgeons to consult for my surgery in addition to Dr. Leppard. Neither compared to him. His staff were professional and available. He was the right amount of relatability and professional to build trust. When I asked him about the procedure, he excitedly told me what he was going to do with my case. He explained what he did with passion as if it was just as fun as going on a vacation. I am less than a week post op and am so happy with the results. He is a genius. Back to his staff: Elise is amazing. She is organized and knows her stuff. She has called me 3 times this week, once before the procedure and the other two times after to check on me. The communication and follow up has been awesome. He may be younger, but he is the best kept secret in Columbia for plastic surgeons!

Dr. Leppard saved my husband's life when we went to the ER at Providence Hospital a year ago. He is probably the most stellar surgeon in Columbia. We would recommend him to anyone and everyone AND he just happens to have been my student at Heathwood Hall Episcopal School two decades ago.

He’s amazing at what he does. I had a bilateral breast reduction and lift performed on 5/16/18 & I am in love with my results. He and his entire staff are very professional and personable. They answered every question I’ve had before and after my procedure with a high level of courteousness & care. I’d highly recommend him!

Wonderful! He literally saved my husband's life when he crashed on New Years Eve. Not great at explaining procedures to the patient but you can always goggle it. But his work was excellent and his team is a great bunch.

Dr. Leppard was not only very professional; he was also very personable. He is a talented surgeon and I will definitely recommend him to anyone I know needing surgery or elective cosmetic procedures. I had a really good experience at his office. It was clean, the office staff was very nice, and he is a great physician. I'm so glad I found him.

I am so thrilled with the results from my visit today that I HAD to share! Great office staff! Highly professional and pleasant from the beginning to the end. Immaculate surgical suite and exam rooms. And Dr. Leppard, he was just wonderful. Listened to my concerns and addressed them all. It truly could not have been a better experience. Thank you, Providence Surgical, for everything!

In April of 2016, Dr. Leppard performed a breast reduction on me and I feel so much better! I was in so much pain and very uncomfortable. He was very caring and and professional from the first consult visit to the operating room. I am glad he was my doctor and would highly recommend him.

Dr. Leppard performed a surgical resection of a pilonidal cyst. If I had known in advance that this procedure would go so smoothly, I would have had it done years ago. I would trust Dr. Leppard to treat any condition and perform any procedure within his area of expertise and qualification. He is a class act.
