I love that Dr Leahy is so hands on with her patients (me) I got to ask her questions that concerns the meds I am taking and her response was very reassuring. I have high confidence in her.

I appreciate Dr. Leahey seeing me on such short notice. My physician [...] had just returned from vacation and was booked solid. But his staff made it all happen.

Dr. Leahy is great to work with. She consistently demonstrates professionalism while paying attention to my personal situation. She is a great listener, clear in her approach and answers, and direct in her feedback and guidance. Over the last few years, I've only had positive experiences that resulted in a trustful relationship.

I like my doctor, but am very disappointed about the time I have to wait to see her. I've never seen her in a decent time frame. The doctor she shares her week with isn't any better in seeing her patient's on time. My time is just as valuable as theirs.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Leahy. She is so compassionate and dedicated and truly listens to my concerns. She recently saw me on very very short notice post-surgery when my surgeon completely ignored my concerns, x-rayed me to find 2 Liters of urine "stuck" in my bladder, called me after hours with the report, arranged an appointment with a urologist, and mitigated what could have been a disastrous situation. Aside from this recent situation, she ALWAYS gets me in within a reasonable time frame, remembers my health history (because she cares) and treats me with the utmost respect.

I only wish Dr. Leahy was taking new patients so my daughter could go to her. She did provide recommendations of other docs in practice.

[...] I am so very grateful that she is my primary care doctor. She manages my health with patience and understanding and always provides workable solutions to my health issues. I am never rushed when she sees me and she balances listening to me with recording my feedback on the computer very well so I never feel ignored. She works with me to provide options for care and allows me to participate in the decision making. I love that I can reach her by the Ecare system when I have a question or issue with my medication. Dr. Leahy doesn't just diagnose my various health conditions, she actually manages my health care comprehensively, working with my other specialist doctors to maintain a full view of my health. I feel so lucky to have Dr. Leahy as my doctor, I always feel better after seeing her. She has a marvelous way of asking just the right questions so I feel that I've shared all the details of my situation and that I remember everything I wanted to say.

Great doctor but the wait time is very frustrating. 45 minutes past the appointment time is much too late.

Dr. Leahy is a kind and patient physician. She has been a partner in my care after my treatment for ovarian cancer. In addition she has helped with other medical issues and has made excellent referrals when needed. She is an excellent physician and practitioner.

This care provider always listens to all of my questions/concerns. Those questions/concerns are always addressed in a clear and thoughtful way. This care provider has always expressed utmost concern and care for my health conditions, which unfortunately are numerous.
