Ratings for Dr. Leonard K. Lehr
Bad experience. C-section after 36 hours labor. Strapped down & left unattended while they "delivered another baby". My daughter's face was cut & needed stitches when they did my c-section. They also did a vertical incision (unheard of) rather than a bikini incision leaving a one-inch scar from belly button down. Another doctor cleaned it up when I had my second child. Most other doctors will NOT recommend Lehr. Stay far from him. Zero stars, if possible. Staff didn't trust him either, yet they were caring.
Dr. Lehr has zero patience for mothers who have questions and want to explore delivering their babies vaginally. He had terrible bed side manner, and when I came to the hospital while I was on hour 30 of laboring (labored at home unmedicated), he was completely disrespectful and rude because I wanted to hold off on an unecesaary major surgery. (There was absolutely no health issues, all my vitals and baby's vitals were normal), and he bullied and scared me into having a c section. My husband was furious at the way he treated us . But we were trying to focus on the birth of our daughter. Dr. Lehr is a greedy man who is all about convenience versus actually helping and nurturing to a first time mother. Beware!
Having an abnormal pregnancy (not knowing what to expect or do about it), I had accidently bumped into Dr. Lehr at my referred OBGYN doctors office due to the original doctor being out of the office. When Dr. Lehr heard my concerns and looked over my chart (i only visited the original doctor once before)-- immediately Dr. Lehr took my situation seriously and scheduled me right away to take care of my twin molar pregnancy. Before this, I was in extreme pain and had cysts growing in my ovaries. Dr. Lehr was the only doctor to take me seriously and took great care of my needs ever since. Now with my normal pregnancy, I am still with Dr. Lehr and every monthly visit I feel comfortable asking questions as well as excited to see the baby throughout my pregnancy. Thank you Dr. Lehr for your care :)
He is AMAZING, knows his stuff, and is NOT afraid to practice medicine. He made sure my ins. covered what I needed, and took amazingly great care of me. Dr. Lehr is the PERFECT combination of YEARS of experience, and modern technology rolled into one. He even came to my hospital bedside every morning to check on me. He is a 10 of 10. God bless him!
Dr. Lehr and his staff are awesome. I never doubted his expertise and felt completely confident in his care. He exhibits calmness and efficiency during the whole process. He is very respected in the obstetrics field. Other doctors refer special need cases to him. When I was having an ultrasound, his nurse took care of my two-year-old daughter and painted her fingernails to help distract her. I would recommend him to everyone.
Dr. Lehr is so great. He has been my Dr. for 13 years and hs delivered 2 of my 3 babies. He is very calming, knowledgable, and very easy to talk to. I hardly ever have to wait longer than 5-10 minutes to get in for my appointments. I have recommended so many ladies to him and they always come back and tell that they are so grateful they are that I told them about him. I wish that everytime I went to a Dr. they would be as great as him.
