26/06/14 1 1 5 4 Dr. Leong is a genuinely nice person, and I like him very much. He is friendly and understanding, and quite intelligent. That said, his staff are completely unprofessional and have extremely poor time management. Also, you can't get an appointment with him for three weeks because he's so busy. Two if it's an 'emergency'. I've never heard of an emergency that can wait for two weeks, but hey, who am I?

10/02/12 4 1 4 5 He is way too busy. I actually feel sorry for him. I don't make appointments that I should... I put them off because it takes so long to get in to see him so I have to take too much time off of work. Yet he is very good.NO EYE CONTACT BECAUSE HE DOESN'T WANT YOU TO TALK TOO MUCH BECAUSE HE IS SO BUSY.  See Responses

12/01/12 5 3 5 5 He has been our family dr for over 15yrs. He's very pationate about his patience, amazing and patient with out kids. The secretaries are fantastic and accomodating to our sick kids. Even after we moved 20mins away we still drive out to see him. U could only be so lucky to have a dr so sincere.  Respond

03/01/12 5 3 4 5 Dr.Leong is very patient and understanding. We've been going to him for many years now and though very, very busy, he's generally taken good care of us all these years. Lisa deserves a medal. She is by far the best medical receptionist I've ever dealt with (I wish I could say the same for one in particular that is there sometimes. I heard her talking about a patient by name and complaining about her to Lisa loudly enough for all of us in the waiting room to hear. I realized I'd better be careful when calling the office for something in the future if she answered instead of Lisa. I hope Dr. Leong keeps practicing for decades to come!  Respond

15/06/11 2 2 3 3 Dr. Leong appears to have too many patients, and not enough time to deal with them adequately. As of lately, I didn't feel as though he was running out of the room as quickly as he used to, but often I am still sitting in the waiting room upwards to 45 minutes. That being said, requisition forms for tests I had requested sat in a pile on his desk, unnoticed for well over a week. These are tests that have extensive waiting lists that I need to put placed on. It’s been 45 days since my injury, and I would just like some answers. Thank you for the apology, but I’m a human being. Not a number.  Respond

14/03/11 5 5 5 5 When I was with Dr. Leong he did everything in his power to help me with anything that I was ailed with or needed support with I would advise anyone to see him for the medical needs. I couldn't rate him a thousand nor his staff but him along with the staff deserve the highest regards from me. Always smiling and cheerful and ready to serve you when they can. Thanks and Kudo's to my doctor!  Respond

30/10/09 3 1 2 2 I was his patient for 10 years, he always had a prescription to write for something. Then one day I went to get a pap smear and he sent me to St. Joseph's because I had an 'overgrowth' of cells which could cause cancer in my cervix (basically he told me I had HPV), and I caught him lying because I was still a virgin. Not only is it immoral and unethical, but the damage it could have caused if I had done testing and surgery at st. Jo's. And I can't imagine how many other girls this happened too. I stopped going to him after that.  Respond

20/10/09 5 5 5 5 I find Dr. James Leong very sincere in his concern for his clients. I don't feel I have to wait long for him. If I do it is because he has taken colleagues patients. The staff is amazing, the woman work hard to help in whatever they can do. They are pleasant, and have a great sense of humor. I wish there was a rating of 1000 or more cause Dr. Leong deserves every ounce of it.  Respond

11/02/09 5 1 2 2 Is often overbooked due to taking partners patients. I was previously a patient of her's , however was switched to him due to her chronic illness. In recent years he appears less patient, rushed. Not as thorough as I would like. Recent solicitation for extended health benefits seems excessively costly, particularly when some of the items on the list should be performed or suggested automatically and not contingent if I have "purchased" "reminders". Hat's off to the incredible staff. They always try to be very accomodating and helpful, which is not an easy task when the office is so tiny and more than likely he is doublebooked with her patients as well as his. It is unfortunate as a few years ago he seemed more approachable and knowledgeable.  Respond

26/01/09 1 1 2 2 Prescription writer, I had a digestive issue/ bowel problem and I found it really wierd how he never asked me about my diet.. Immediately wrote up a prescription. nothing ended up working with him and it wasn't after switching my doctor that he asked me to fill out a chart of what I ate over the next 2 weeks and told me to drop some things out of my diet and it helped immensely. Also when I clearly never had bronchitis he says that I had it and put me on antibiotics without really finding out if in fact I did have it.  Respond
