This is a wonderful doctors office. The front desk receptionist and the physician assistant were friendly and polite. Dr Leeman was attentive, thorough and a pleasure to see. I needed surgical clearance from a pulmonologist and couldn’t havebeen happier with the service provided with Dr Leeman and his team.

My first visit I waited for over 45 minutes in the waiting room until I was called in. Once I was brought into the exam room, I waited another 30 minutes. The dr finally came in, gathered some history and askedwhat I was there for. I was having really bad shortness of breath and he wanted to do a breathing test, EKG, blood work and a urine sample. After everything was done, I went into his office where he ended up prescribing me an inhaler since my breathing test came back not so good. He then started talking about leaving him reviews online and on zocdoc. My first thought was, I waited over an hour to see you, I can't breathe and your concerned about leaving reviews? I brushed it off and went for the CT scan. I have had cancer previously, which the doctor was aware of so waiting on results brings on a lot of anxiety for me. He called and told me that there was a finding but wouldn't give me any further information. He told me I could call back to speak to the front desk about making an appointment or a phone appointment. I said, you want me to make a phone appointment and I am on the phone with you now? It made no sense. I said I am really nervous and find this unsettling that you can't give me any further information, I asked if I could come in that same day and he said there was no availability. I called the front, and the next appointment wasn't for 6 days. After being extremely upset and nervous, my husband called and he completely changed his story. He said that he told me I can come in that same day if I wanted to, which was not what he told me. I was so scared of what the results were and didn't want to wait to find another doctor so I kept the appointment and decided to give him one more chance. The last appointment was not informative at all. In fact, I felt worse. He wasn't able to give me any kind of information on the nodule that I had, and scared me into thinking the absolute worst. He referred me to a surgeon in St. Francis and then AGAIN proceeded to talk about me leaving him a review. So two appointments later, I still cannot breathe, and on top of that am crazy anxious over the results that were never really explained to me. Any question I asked him, he didn't have an appropriate answer for. He was more concerned about his reviews than anything else. Horrible experience.

This was my first appt. with Dr. Leeman and I found him kind, empathetic and actaully LISTENED to me, which seems to be rare art form these days. He professionally checked all my tests and reports and I actually have faiththat he will find a solution to my coughing problem.At least he had alternatives that no one else offered and that gives me hope. I definitely would recommend him. TYVM

ease and wait for appt was good as a first time patient I felt I was not being heard well, I was concerned about new nodule appearing as well as nodule that my past now retired DR have been following. Iwas thorough in bringing past ct disc with me he never took the time to look at all he wanted was reports.I left office only to repeat an ex-ray I got 1 wk prior and to mk another appt. Needless to say the hunt is on for a caring thorough pulmonologist that would rather look at actual pics of my lungs than reading someone else's report

Dr. Leeman was great. He ordered tests that I had never had done before which gave me the impression that he is very thorough. I appreciate that after having doctors in that past that rushed through my appointments and insisted Iwas healthy because of my young age. I have nothing to complain of so far. Looking forward to my future appointments with Dr. Leeman.

Doctor Leeman was absolutely amazing. This was my first time here. I was pretty nervous but almost instantly I felt comfortable and he is so caring and dedicated to his job and his clients. I’ve been feeling sick for years—yes yersbecause I’ve been mistakenly diagnosed and in one day he resolved one of my main issues. The rest is for my PCP. Overall, I highly recommend if you need a pulmonologist, go to him. You won’t be disappointed! Thank you for everything!

Good doctor but you need to remind him of things pertaining to your situation or ailments. If you see Dr. Lehman you must pay attention to what he says . Remember the things you say to him because he has atendency to forget your last visit but he’s an a efficient Dr and I like him You also have to remind him of things that you discussed in your previous visit but that’s OK because it is your responsibility to pay attention to your treatments and progress

First time seeing the doctor. From the beginning to the end the appointment and everything that it entails was fantastic. It was easy to schedule the appointment and when I checked in they had all my information ready. The staff isabsolutely phenomenal. Very professional and polite. The doctor did a complete exam, something that I was not expecting considering some doctors don't always have all the equipment necessary. The best was the doctor's attention to detail. He seemed very concerned to what I had to say and took his time to answer my questions. Absolutely loved the ease of the whole process, no paperwork hassle. If I could rate with more stars I would.
