This is a very impressive operation. Everyone was very nice and it was run so efficiently. I was a new patient and I was there for a total of 45 minutes, including paperwork and x-rays. I was quite pleased with everything and highly recommend them.

Caring kind doctor. Great bedside manner. Spent an hour with my mom- nurse practitioner was just as kind. Rarely does a dr spend so much time explaining your choices. I've been to this practice before with my sons collarbone surgery - and had the same caring experience with another doctor.

We had a good discussion and decided on the next steps to take. His assistant Laura set up the next two visits.

Not sure this issue is with the doctor but rather with office policy. I waited almost 2 hours to see the doctor. If things are running this late perhaps you should call and let patients know that they can arrive later. Things that get measured get better. If you are not tracking the time between when the patient arrives and when he/she sees the doctor, maybe you should. This is a basic quality control,technique.

Dr. Leighton seemed extremely knowledgeable and I would absolutely be trusting of his opinion. The downside, especially for a first visit, was the rushed nature of the appointment. I had questions about my injury, like what to do in between visits (icing, rotation, physical therapy exercises, etc.), that were not being answered because he was in a rush to get to the next patient. The office, or complex, is impressive, but the personal touch is lacking.
