Ratings for Dr. Deena F. Leonard
Doctor Leonard went above and beyond to help us through a stressful situation. When our daughter was 4 she woke up one day and her eye's were stuck in the crossed position. The first thing that Dr. Leonard recommended was an MRI, as this situation was unusual. We were impressed that Dr. Leonard called us personally several times to give us the MRI results and check and see how our daughter was doing. We have never had a doctor do this. Thankfully the MRI came back without any problems and Dr. Leonard explained that our daughter had strabismus. Dr. Leonard proceeded to try to correct the problem using prescription glasses and eye patching. We were happy Dr. Leonard took her time trying to correct the problem using these methods instead of rushing to surgery (We tried to correct the strabismus with glasses and patching for around 7 or 8 months). After this period of time it became apparent that this method was not working and surgery would be needed for our daughter. This was the most difficult part of the process for us. Trusting Dr. Leonard to perform surgery on our precious daughters only set of eyes. By this time we felt we were in very good hands. Dr. Leonard took plenty of time to answer questions and make us feel comfortable with the process which was greatly appreciated. We are writing this review two weeks after our daughters eye surgery was performed. We couldn't be happier with the results! Our daughters eye crossing is gone! We would highly recommend Dr. Leonard and her staff to anyone.
Very knowledgeable, informative and attentive. Straight forward, compassionate and trustworthy. I am an adult who had eye muscle issue and had to undergo a surgery. I had interviewed a few eye doctors before deciding who to go to for a surgery, and although all of them were good, Dr. Deena Leonard evoked complete trust and confidence by her professional and friendly attitude, well of knowledge, straightforwardness, and positive personality that I immediately decided to go with her, and I am so glad I did since the results of the surgery exceeded expectations - my eyes are healthy and back to normal. I highly recommend this Doctor.
Doctor Deena is detail oriented and spends good time diagnosing the issue. my son had strabismus and was diagnosed when he was less than a year and had a surgery done successfully and today my son has a good vision and he is doing good. I thank her for her thorough diagnose and right treatment at right time. I definitely recommend this doctor for vision treatment.
This office was no where near being kid friendly. Was told child needed glasses although child had 20/20 vision and never had any issues with eyes. The Dr did not explain anything in detail and at end of visit told me my child would need glasses for life. I took my child to a different and way more modern office that had amazing technology and was told my child was fine and did not need glasses. The whole office was not friendly from the front end to the doctor. I would never go here again and advise anyone with children to do the same.
The Doctor and Staff have always been helpful and a pleasure to see, including Val who fixes our boy's glasses about every 3 months, (more often in the summer). Information is always given and understand regarding any vision concerns or conditions.
Dr. Leonard's professional expertise, amazing kindness and genuine enthusiasm to work with children always makes for an uplifting visit. Children with special gifts are welcomed and the joy in caring for them come naturally to Dr. Leonard and her team. Mother in Buffalo Grove
Dr Leonard is GREAT!!! we leave every appointment feeling grateful that we found her to treat our daughter. the staff is nice. the dr's assistants are all very nice and helpful however the front office staff usually takes a good amount of time to schedule appointments and accept payments. there has been some issue with appointments running on time but everyone is always apologetic and it is completely understandable that sometimes with small children things run late. also, Val in the frames department is AMAZING! he makes our daughter feel like the most beautiful little girl everytime he adjusts her frames or lenses. i would tell anyone/everyone in need of a pediatric eye doctor to call Premier Eye Care!
