What People Say About Dr. William Leighton, MD
Reply
On my initial visit Dr Leighton he was flippant, arrogant, dismissive and arrogant. I'm hoping that his medical skills are better that he people skills. The clinic is amazing. I'd recommend Mayo to other people. I would encourage anyone to be seen at Mayo. The have more gI docs.
