Ratings for Dr. Tobey M. Leung
He is unbelievably great at many things. Doing his best is extremely important to him. He maybe the most interesting and intriguing individual I've ever met. He's down to earthiness and realness. Dr. Leung treats you as well as you can be treated. I can't ask for a better doctor.
Dr Leung is exceptional at analyzing others AND himself. He's well-versed in interrogation/interview techniques, such as empathizing to gain trust. He must have a ball interviewing patients with chronic pain and take pain meds. Some people lie and some don't. He figures out who's who.
Doctors like Dr. Leung is the fixer. Among doctors, he's the guy! He's the guy who you see when other doctors have messed up. He likes being behind the scenes and doesn't need to be the guy up front. Doctors like him don't advertise. You won't find him listed in the yellow pages or online on Angie's List or LinkedIn. Patients primarily get to see him through word of mouth.
I would disagree with the prior reviewer about excellence. OUTSTANDING is a better word to describe Dr. Leung. Every thing that he does has purpose. He has good intentions and he concentrates hard on whatever the problem or matter is at hand. Accident is not in his vocabulary. He carefully plans beforehand and executes the tasks with high precision.
I was rear-ended and whiplash in 2003. I really liked Dr Paul Willis, who I was seeing but he didn't do the more complex pain procedures and was practicing mostly hospital rehab at the time. But the best thing he ever did for me was to refer me to his colleague Dr Leung, who was the only real pain doctor in their group. People don't realize what chronic pain can do to a person. I couldn't hold down a job & I was miserable with the constant pain that I made my spouse and kids miserable too. Our relationship problems worsen and we separated, followed by divorce & custody battle or actually visitation rights over our children. I had no health insurance but Dr Leung was the most understanding man. He suspected I had a condition that could be managed with a neck spine procedure, but I couldn't afford to pay out of pocket. Dr Leung didn't care about the money and said he would waive his entire fee. He would do the procedure for free but the problem was the spine procedure had to be done in a surgical center and he needed the machines that Enloe Outpatient Surgery Center (EOC) had in order to do the procedure but they charged too much. I had no income or savings to pay them, so Dr Leung was kind enough to manage my pain in the meanwhile with meds. And he chose the cheapest pain med too, called methadone. Dr Leung waived all office fees also. Methadone was a medication that required I pick up the prescription physically every month. Dr Leung scheduled my office visits like for other patients, but he told me his office staff would send me bills as routinely done. However, Dr Leung told me not to pay it and he promised he would keep it from going to collections. Then I finally got a small settlement from my personal injury lawsuit and had just enough cash left to pay for EOC's bills. It was almost 10 grand. But true to Dr Leung's word, he waived his physician billing for the procedure. After he did the procedure, it took a few weeks for it to kick in, but once it did I would say my pain went from level 9 to 2. Dr Leung then weaned me off my pain med/methadone. I found a job that Dr Leung thought I could do after he took the time to review the job description and gave me advice on how to prevent reinjury. Just like he promised, I never received collection notice or threats for not paying my medical bills. He tgreated me like any patient except he didn't make a dime off me for 3 years. It's the 10 year Anniversary of my procedure so I just wanted to thank Dr Leung fo all he did for me and Dr Willis for sending me to Dr Leung. I have a steady job and girlfriend now and I have a decent life back all because Dr Leung's unselfishness and kindness toward me. I have health insurance now and can see him periodically whenever the pain returns and if he needs to kill the pain nerves in my neck spine again.
