Dr. Leach is very patient and understanding. I am in a "watch and wait" situation as my disease is currently in a somewhat stable condition. (Dr. Leach has explained my long term health/life condition but is listening to my request to wait and monitor my progress or decline. There isn't much hope for an improvement)

Dr. Leach is very thorough in her explanations of all test results and her suggestions. She is compassionate and caring not only about me, as her patient, but my family as well. Couldn't ask for more from her excellent care.

[...] Dr Leach was unable to be there. After a 3 hour wait before may appt, then no doctor at my appy, when my appt time was over, i had to catch my bus, and ride 20 miles home, or wait another 3 hours for the next bus. HOWEVER, she called me at home and we talked like it was my appt. I had seen my lab results on Mychart, and we discussed them.

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!
