SHC Patient, May 2016

Didn't offer as much info as I'd like, but answered all questions willingly. But presented treatment as "have to do" instead of "we could do that."

SHC Patient, May 2016

I have no clue whether Dr. Leong is a good Dr. or not. He spent barely anytime with me. When he first walked in the room he interrupted a tearful discussion without even noticing. That started things off wrong - He talked loud and overly confident and condescending. Then leaves to talk over things with the nurse! But I made the appt with Dr.! A scary appt at that.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

I am 68, Dr. Michael Leong is one of the finest doctors I have ever met. He discussed my complicated back problem and my options in clear language. After talking with Dr. Leong, about my situation and options I feel hope and so relieved - Like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I know I could not be in better hands. I don't feel this despair about my situation that I felt.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Everyone (Dr. Leong and his female partner worked well together, and answered all of our questions).

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

The doctor informed me, himself, of a delay and made sure I was comfortable!

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Excellent.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. was great about squeezing me in for holidays! Really appreciated it!!

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Leong is an amazing doctor but also person unlike many doctors in PM.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Excellent experience.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Very pleased with my meeting with Dr. Leong.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

In essence Dr. Leong is good - just didn't have enough time w/him.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Not a talker, or "warm n fuzzy" but I very much enjoyed the technical teaching he was giving his student and the precision of his hands for the actual procedure.
