Biography & Education

I like to think of the patient-doctor relationship as a partnership, with both of us working together toward a common goal of optimum health. I strive to get to know my patients as individuals, so that we can find the approach that is right for them. The long term relationships that result are what make medicine rewarding for me.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Leahy is outstanding in her care and treatment of my sister [...] who is developmentally disabled and aging. She is outstanding in my care and treatment as well. I referred a cousin who now goes to Dr. Leahy.
Swedish Patient

As noted before, I felt like my physician had too tight a schedule - she did not have sufficient time to cover all my concerns which I had documented with her assistant.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Leahy is the best primary care MD I have ever had.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Leahy is the reason I stay with the Minor and James group in spite of the ridiculous wait times and difficulty in schedule appointments and reaching people on the phone. Her assistant is very good at returning my calls, but getting through is impossible.
Swedish Patient

She always takes longer with each patient and makes her late to the next appointment.
Swedish Patient

Outstanding doctor!
Swedish Patient

I have my whole family going to Leahy, found my daughter's rare condition.
Swedish Patient

Consistent improvement in approach of this provider. She used to be quite cold and had an almost indifferent approach, but great improvement noticed.
Swedish Patient

absolutely would recommend Dr Leahy.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Leahy is an outstanding physician. She has been my doctor for 7 years and factors her previous experiences with me into her current analysis. She tracks my general well-being and identifies areas where greater attention might be necessary. I have complete trust in her judgment.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Leahy is fantastic!!!
Swedish Patient

I am so fond of Dr Leahy and have been seeing her as my primary physician for years. I love having her take care of my medical needs. She is very caring, listens well and is truly concerned about my healthcare. I have recently had to go onto [...] and was so relieved that I could keep Dr Leahy. I can not speak highly enough about Dr Leahy and would happily recommend her to anyone.
