What People Say About Dr. Zenette Leao, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr Leao was knowledgeable and personable. The front desk staff, however, is horrible. Particularly the blond younger girl that sits at the desk. No customer service skills whatsoever!!!!!

The office staff was rude when i called to let them know my prescription had not been filled after i had physically drove to the pharmacy to retrieve it. As for Dr. Leao personally, i feel like she did not hear anything i had to say. She didnt care to read my medical history and said she wanted to "pick out just what has been tried already", even though it has been a 10+ year problem.

My first initial visit was great. I was in and out in less than an hour, after having talked with the nurse, the doctor, and having an annual exam. The nurse and Dr. Leao were very warm and friendly. I will continue to be a patient and refer other women.
