So glad I was referred to Dr. Leach - wish it had been a lot earlier - she explained things so that I understood and really listened to me. Every time I saw my previous kidney Dr. I never learned any more than before I went in. As soon as I told my primary doctor, he referred me to Dr. Leach. So glad!

Dr. Leach is a great provider and I am so thankful she is in Walla Walla. We need to keep her here because the other nephrologist is not good.

Dr. Leach was very aware of the my condition when I arrived at her office and was ready to assist me. Her receptionist was very kind to a lost person looking for her appointment clinic.
