I thought the place was great and would come back. I just wish they sent my blood results via email or fax instead of having me pick it up (which is very difficult for me b.c I work in Irvine). Thereare plenty of HIPAA compliant tools out there that let you do this. But all in all, excellent.

Didn't seem to care too much about my personal well being and I had to ask him follow-up questions to get answers about things he should have told me.

His staff was very friendly and he was funny--it made me feel more comfortable. I would have given a higher rating but I waited 30 minutes in the waiting room and they don't validate parking in the structure connected to their building. Other than that it was great!

Professional. Personally handled a referral and made it happen even though we had to leave. He was aware of our need to leave without us saying anything. Very considerate and we felt well cared for.

My initial visit to Dr. Leitner's office was an annual physical. Appt was arranged within 3 days of first log-in onto ZocDoc. Doctor and his assistant (Leslie) were both very professional. I think that I will make Dr. Leitner my primary care physician.

Besides the wait time, seems like someone came to visit after I checked in and had to wait until they were done chatting, seemed like the only negative thing I have to say. Waiting in a doctors office is nothing new,everyone has to do it. I just wish I didnt have to wait 45 minutes. Dr. Leitner was great and I will definitely keep him as my general care physician. He evaluated me cautiously and made sure he took down all the information about my symptoms and then presented me with a plan to take care of my illness and also some other nagging sports injuries. Highly recommend using him for your primary care!
