Ratings for Dr. William Craig Leach
Dr Leach was on the team of doctors that saved our daughter's life, when she was diagnosed with a giant cell astrocytoma brain tumor at age 18 months. He followed her closely through 3 brain surgeries & was always very caring and helpful whenever we had future questions or issues. My daughters both referred to him as "Doctor Dude" because he related to them at their level, but he could also handle us. I would HIGHLY recommend him
THE BEST! He is kind, calm, and collected. He takes the time to listen to you as a parent and trusts that you know your kid best. Any time my son's are sick he gets them in right away-avoiding costly urgent care or ER bills which is a plus! Good office hours and he or any of his partners are always responsive when paged. Dr. Leach was my pediatrician growing up and now he takes care of my sons. I wouldn't trust anyone else.
As a former pediatric regular of Dr. Leach, I can say that having him as a doctor through the various good times and bad really helped me feel at peace. I would look forward to visiting his welcoming office for those dreaded flu-shots just so he could crack me a joke and ask me about my life! I would highly recommend Dr. Leach simply one of the best
He's the best. Plain and simple. I like to think of myself as someone who does her research and makes sure that every piece of advice for my children is accurate. He's the only doctor I know, both in pediatrics and family practice that I trust 100%. I agree that a few of the other staff can be at times less than cheerful, but Dr Leach makes it worth the occasional bad additude.
My wife is a pediatrician, and this is the guy that she picked saying "hands down...no question." I don't much like doctors, but this guy is such a special doc that you don't feel stupid asking questions, and you NEVER feel belittled. He is unbelievably intelligent, but more than that he just loves kids (and even parents too, I think).
I have an almost two year old, and we've been going to Dr. Leach since she was born. He makes new parents feel confident and at ease! He listens to his patience and his sense of humor makes going to the Dr. less of a pain. The staff on the other hand is often less then helpful and at times even rude. Sometimes it's difficult to see him on short notice (as if you can tell he is a popular doctor) but there are always doctors in his clinic that can see my daughter if need be. I would recommend Dr. Leach and can't imagine seeing anyone else!
The best doctor by far - one of his best attributes is that he does not have "knee jerk" reactions to you childs ills and other problems. He is very judicious in presribing meds. He does just walk in ask what you "think" is wrong and prescribe something for your child just to get you out of there. GREAT DOC!
Dr. Leach is the best doctor for children as well as their parents. As first time parents, he made the appointments fun and non-threatening for us, he is always open to questions and helped us think through making appointments affordable because our insurance doesn't cover anything. Our son loves to go to him and and always says "He's silly, isn't he, Mom?" He has never been scared of going to the Dr. because Dr. Leach just isn't scary. His staff is excellent and most helpful when calling in with questions. One nurse called us several times a day to check on our son, and helped us through an illness so that we never needed to go to the office. I just can't say enough about Dr. Leach!
