Other doctors seem to be very quick to just prescribe medications but Dr. Leeman actually takes the time to ask you questions & run tests to get accurate reading on your well-being. I had been with another pulmonary doctor for 2decades & I never did any of these exams. Dr. Leeman also never looks like he is rushing you in & out just to get to the next patient & instead takes his time after the exams to discuss the next steps & any follow-ups. Thank you Dr. Leeman for your refreshing approach to my well-being!!

Dr Leeman is a good doctor and gives attention to his patients. However, he kept trying to get me to book a follow up appointment despite saying I was fine. It felt like he just wanted to keep charging my insurancedoing unnecessary tests and office visits. Also didn't like the fact that he asks for a review. I feel in a doctor-patient relationship it's very hard for a patient to give an honest review unless they have decided not to go back to the doctor in the future

A little indifferent and his staff was busy arranging for different diagnostic testing - in our view without much explanation as to the need.

By far the worst experience I’ve ever had at a doctors office. Maybe Dr. Leeman was having a bad day (based on all of the positive reviews the practice has) because I was treated poorly. My arm was yanked in orderto take my blood pressure and my questions went unanswered. Dr. Leeman decided to send his medical assistant in to finish with me and he exited the room. I ended up just explaining to her that I didn’t feel comfortable and that I had decided to leave.

Not crowded. Neat and clean office. Easy Street parking. Nice staff. Doctor came off slightly cold in the beginning, but during final consultation in his office, he seemed to warm up a bit. Satisfied with his explaination and assessment. I plan on going back for my follow up.
