Ratings for Dr. Garrick Leonard
I had the most amazing birthing experience with Dr. Garrick Leonard! He delivered my baby girl on May 12, 2019 (Mothers Day). She came on her exact expected due date. Dr. Leonard was very professional and calm during my delivery which in turn allowed for me to not panic. He coached me through the pushing and my baby girl was out of the womb in 13 minutes flat! I had 2nd degree rip and he basically put me back together perfectly which made for a great healing process. As a first time mom, leading up to my labor and delivery I had TONS of questions during my doctors visits and he answered them all without hesitation. I shared my concern of wanting a nature birth and I felt heard by him. His staff were the best! Very personable and caring. There was never a long wait to be seen which is a huge plus! Also the hospital Dr. Leonard is affiliated with and where I delivered was NYP - Weill Cornell. What a beautiful hospital and amazing staff of nurses!! They took great care of me. Everyone was so professional, nurturing and helpful. One nurse sat forehead to forehead with me to help calm me when I was panicking about the pain of getting an epidural... and it ended up not hurting at all. They also taught my husband and I all the basics of taking care of a newborn from Breastfeeding, burping, how to properly hold, take the temperature etc. I am forever grateful for these women!! I will 100% be delivering my second baby at this hospital with Dr. Garrick Leonard!
Excellent doctor. Involved in three of my pregnancy and deliveries. My primary doctor for two and on miscarriage. Performed a version on me with my other doctor who I changed to due to insurance reasons with my third. I love Dr Leonard. I have never felt in better care.
After having read the below comments, I was very excited to book my first pregnancy appointment with Dr. Garrick. Unfortunately, he doesn't take on patients whose pregnancy hasn't been confirmed or aren't 8-10 weeks in the pregnancy already. I would love to have him as my doctor, but it seems that they work only with confirmed "business". Not the relationship we are looking for.
Dr. Leonard was my OB for my first pregnancy. I thought he was an excellent doctor! Prompt, direct, patient and took time to answer my questions. I really had a wonderful experience with him and he has a nice warm, bedside manner. I would have loved for him to deliver my baby, but sadly, he was not on call the day I delivered (7/8/14).
Dr. Leonard saw me through my entire pregnancy and delivered my first child. He is professional, respectful and he has a great sense of humor. I truly appreciated Dr. Leonard's expert advice and non-alarmist demeanor. I was induced when I was almost 2 weeks late and had a relatively quick labor with no major complications. I highly recommend Dr. Leonard and his entire practice!
