Dr. Sylvie Leone's Ratings
I had doctor Leone for my first (breech) c-section, and while I wanted to attempt a V-Bac with #2, she insisted it was too high a risk for rupture. As it turned out after the birth when I asked "it wasn't such an issue as we thought". I trusted the professional. Which almost cost me the life of my baby girl.
Both times, my babies were booked for C-Sections over TWO weeks before their due dates (most likely to avoid me going into labour during her Christmas day celebration). My second was born, let out a half cry, then stopped breathing. She was rushed to NICU, hooked up to a ventilator, tubes everywhere, while I was stitched up.
Being Christmas Eve morning, Dr. L headed home to her family while I awaited the status on my baby. It was the anaesthesiologist who was my rock, the one who went to check on baby, and come back to report they'd gotten her breathing.
My family doc at the time had said (after I told her this story) "yes, she prefers to do c-sections because they are more money and quicker".
Every doctor and OB (I've had 2 other pregnancies since this) have been shocked that they would consider booking a c-section so early. Here in London, they wait until a week before so there is less risk of baby's lungs not being developed since the due date could be off by a week.
My daughter has had respiratory issues since this incident at birth, and even her specialist has agreed it was most likely in part due to her early arrival and unnecessary c-section.
I write this in hopes that I can help someone escape the hell I went through. I had a 'perfectly normal pregnancy' that led to being fully dilated at 26 wks. Dr leone was my OB and also happened to be the person performing my c-section. She gave me a vertical cut on the skin and cut a 'T' shaped on my uterus. I have spoken to at least 10 OBs to see if the vertical cut was necessary and they all confirm that she could have done the job with a horizontal cut on the exterior so I can avoid looking so ridiculous! Not to mention that the fact that her 'stitches' could have killed me with my second pregnancy. As she had failed to properly stitch the uterus which created a super thin wall on the left side an would have burst had I had any contractions with 2nd baby. Thank god for the planned. C section and other capable doctors. If you an avoid this person who just should not be a doctor, please do. You may regret going to her for the rest of your life, like I do.
I really like Dr. Leone. She took more time with me then some of the other doctors, answered my questions, and after checking the baby's heart rate, she gave me a hand to help me up which most other doctors didn't. I was pleased with my care from her. I had her for only 2 appointments, but I don't have a single complaint.
I had an etopic pregnancy, which needed emergency surgery. Dr. Leone was kind and knowlegeable. She was calm and collected in a time of panic. She made me feel everything would be looked after. She visited me a couple hours later to see how i was and to explain what had happened. The follow up meeting was short. I believe she is a good doctor that will look after the patients best interest, she may not be the most open and friendliest but i think knowledge and care far outweighs it.
Dr. Leone preformed a D&C and then performed laproscoipc surgery to remove cysts. She was very helpful in this regard. However, depending on the day and time she can be quite moody. You have to ignore the personality and listen to the advice.
i had a yeast infection that other gynacologists diagnosed as boils so i was perscribed an antibiotic dr leone checked on it for 5 minutes and told me why it got as big as it did she was very kind and told me how i can get rid of it quicker she also explained to me how i got it in the first place .... THANKS SOOO MUCH
I had a horrible experience with Dr. Leone she was my OB with my second child and I ended up having a c-section and was very nervous she did nothing to help me through it as a matter of fact she was rude to me and made me feel silly for being nervous. When she came the next day to do her follow up she again was rude didn't congratulate me or anything. I had my first child at Mt. Sinai and would never recommend Credit Valley for anything!
