What Our Patients Say


Dr. Leonard was so caring and knowledgeable of my health issue. He is very conservative which is something I was looking for. I went through pain management for a year before I decided with Dr. Leonard it was time for my L5S1 fusion and Laminectomy…All the staff and Dr. Leonard was amazing. His office is so polite and easy to get to. I would definitely recommend him for your health care needs. Thank you Dr. Leonard and staff.

Absolutely yes! Dr. Leonard is a no nonsense neurosurgeon who performed back surgery on me after a car accident. He explained the details of the surgery in a way that I could understand, pre and post surgery. I trusted him on my first visit and knew that I wanted him to be my surgeon. His staff is so friendly and were always prepared for my visits. They prepared me for the surgery and made sure I understood what was going to happen and what I needed to do before and after surgery. Dr. Leonard and his staff are the very best at what they do!

He did both my husband’s neck and lower back surgeries. No problems and quick recovery time. We feel very blessed to have found him. No games and straight forward about all aspects. We highly recommend him.
