Ratings for Dr. Gregory Leonard
My daughter died because of the uncaring manner of dear Doctor Leonard and the staff of Kemptville District Hospital. He called me to tell me that my daughter was given an overdose but that it wasn't necessary to come to the hospital. I couldn't believe that he would not expect me to go to the hospital. What was he trying to hide? If I hadn't rushed in, my daughter would have died that day. What kind of uncaring individual would react in this manner? I think he was trying to protect Dr. Roberto Giaccone, who was responsible for the overdose. Nevertheless, my daughter did eventually die (after I had her transferred to a facility in Ottawa, where the care was no better). I don't know where either Doctor obtained their licence to practice. With proper care, my daughter could have lived a lot longer. Her daughter never got to know her mother. Dear doctors and staff of Kemptville District Hospital, "There will be a final judgment". It's only a matter of time!
Dr Leonard has been our family physician since 1988 and I only have praise for him. He is extremely knowledgeable and has always been very patient and polite with my children and myself. I went to 6 different physicians in the Kemptville area trying to find a good one when my kids were born and once we found him, we didn't have to look any further.
Dr. Leonard goes on lots of vacations and consequently has no time to see patients. I've had doctor Leonard as my family doctor for over 30 years now, but for the last few years he has never been able to see me within a months time. A couple times they actually tried to schedule an appointment for me 3 months down the road. Who's still sick or in pain 3 months after the event? Overall very poor service these days, in my opinion he should just retire and get it over with.
I like Dr Leonard. He's a nice guy and never diagnosed me wrong. I found the person above who "diagnosed themself" pretty funny.. diagnos themselves.. haha. Anyhow, he's a good doctor, and who cares what God he believes in, I'll give him the good MD card and ignore what religion he follows.
I have always respected Dr. Leonard's ability to provide me with quality care. I appreciate his focus and his attention to the facts. He's objective in his assessment of the patient and the symptoms. I can see how some might find his manner calculated (or even cold)but, honestly,I want a Doctor that listens, assesses and provides you with good info and direction. I have a very high respect for his prescence and opinion and having as my Dr. has been of great benefit for all my health issues. He's a busy guy who has been taking excellent care of his community for many years. Thanks Dr. Leonard for being there when I finally accepted that I needed you.
He does not spend enough time with each patient to be capable of forming an accurate diagnosis of the possible problem. I had perfectly normal blood pressure till 39 years old. It changed to 165/115 overnight. His diagnosis was "Old Age setting in". I was given BP pills, and more pills, etc. Have had exceedingly high blood pressure since then (up to 260/160). Finally diagnosed as Coon's Disease 8 years later, which has been my problem since the beginning. I had my left adrenalin gland removed. He did not do his research. I then injured my left wrist in 1999. He diagnosed it as arthritis (or as carpel tunnel). The pain increased till it was unbearable for the next 3 year. It was finally diagnosed three years later as a ripped tendon in my wrist. Due to the delayed diagnosis I had my left wrist removed (4 corner fusion) in 2003, and I am now on CCPD disability making $12,00/yr. I formally complained to the College of Physicians and Surgeons to no avail. Patients lie, doctors don't. Ha!
I have been a patient of Dr. Leonard for 22 years and my family has for longer. I could not have asked for a more caring and thoughtful person to take care of me or any other member of my family. He has helped my family through its fair share of terrible situations as well as all the common colds, flu's and aches. Anytime you need a specialist who always gives recommendations to the best person for the job.
