September 19, 2022
Dr. Joy Leong has always been very professional, very friendly, and makes you feel really comfortable to be able to talk to her and explained your situation. So thank you for having her on your staff. Thank you.
September 19, 2022
Love this Dr!
September 19, 2022
I was recommended Dr. Leong by a friend and was very satisfied with my appointment with her. She was very attentive and explained everything very well. She was not dismissive in any of my concerns as other doctors have been in the past. Dr. Leong was very thorough, I would definitely recommend her to friends and family.
September 14, 2022
Dr. Joy Jeong was very thorough in her examination of my 95 year old mother and was very clear in her explanation of the problem.
September 08, 2022
Office was clean and beautiful. Staff was nice and very helpful. We we're thinking about going to another facility but after one appointment we we're hooked. The doctor was very nice and felt down to earth
September 01, 2022
I waited in the waiting room 20 minutes past my appointment time with no one acknowledging the delay. I was then taken to a room and got undressed only to sit there another 50+ minutes. No one ever came and said anything to me, they just left me sitting there. Someone should at least come by every ten minutes or so and explain the delay and apologize. Waiting over an hour past the appointment time is uncalled for. The doctor did apologize when she came in, which I appreciated.
August 31, 2022
I've been going to Dr. Leong for several years now and she's one of the best doctors I go to, one of the kindest, thorough and I told her at the end of the appointment. I'm so grateful that we have such a wonderful doctor, in our city, in our community as she. She's just a lovely person and a wonderful doctor. Thank you.
August 31, 2022
All of the staff is so friendly and professional, from the check in desk to MA to the doctor!
August 23, 2022
Dr Joy Leong is definitely very knowledgeable, gentle, and courteous. Only suggestion would be for her to ask if I had any further questions before leaving the room. It was a rushed appointment this time. May have been a busier day for her and that's totally understandable.
August 23, 2022
I love seeing Dr. Leong. She makes me feel comfortable and explains everything in detail. I walk away from my appointments feeling well informed. I had my 6 week postpartum appointment and she was able to answer all my questions leaving me at ease. The office staff and nurses are stellar. I look forward to my next visit.
August 22, 2022
Dr. Joy Leong is very competent, she treated me with so much respect and explained all the care that I needed very simply, accurately, and easy to understand. This office staff that was there was very helpful. But the medical assistant (name removed), she was rude and she had tried to weigh me with all my belongings. And I had shared with her, can I please remove the belongings, because it doesn't take an accurate measurement of my weight. And she said okay I think so I guess so. And I said well that's not good, because they need to have an accurate assessment. So for me, I really feel that she can improve in terms of providing quality care, being more sensitive to...to
August 22, 2022
Paying to park for an appointment is annoying since we are already paying to see the doctor.
August 22, 2022
It was a very good experience,she was very reassuring
August 18, 2022
One I first met her it seemed she was in a hurry, but after my next appointments she took the time to listen to my questions and respond to them.
August 18, 2022
The care at this facility was great. This is probably one of the best doctors appointments I've ever had in my life, Dr. Joy Leong, was very good and very knowledgeable, very helpful and she was very communicative with me and I, so appreciated that.
August 17, 2022
Seen timely and dr makes you feel very comfortable to talk to
August 17, 2022

August 17, 2022
She was very kind and informative.
August 12, 2022
I was lucky there was a cancellation so I got appointment as much needed!
August 12, 2022
Dr. Leong has been my Ob-Gyn since 1996. Since then, I've married, had two kids, and am now menopausal. With each stage she and her staff have always been super smart and completely helpful and informative. I hold them all in the highest regard. Not looking forward to the colonoscopy Doctor gave me orders for, though. LOL

August 08, 2022
This provider Joy Leong was incredible. One of the best doctors I have seen in all the years I have been at PIH. She was so caring and understanding and took time to explain things to me in a way that I would understand, not just doctor jargon. She was so patient. She was so, so kind and so supportive. I have never, ever seen another doctor like her.

July 28, 2022
I arrived 10 minutes prior to my appointment. I checked in online to speed up the process. But, I had an unexpected wait time (1 hour) to see Dr. Leong.
July 21, 2022
Actually, it most professional doctor. She is wonderful. I've been seeing her for years and I'm very happy with her and satisfied with the way she has treated me in the last 20 years.

Always very pleasant to meet with this provider and I appreciate her insights and her positive attitude. She is the best!
July 18, 2022
Dr. Leong has been my gynecologist for many years. She listens to what I have to say and makes sure that I'm getting all of my screenings done. She always makes me feel comfortable and calm. She is a very caring person. I really wish she could be my primary care physician as well.
July 13, 2022
I appreciated a phone call from the Dr. Letting me know what my labs were and what they meant.
July 13, 2022
The doctor is excellent.
July 13, 2022
Dr. Leong is so welcoming, always a smile to comfort you. She's the best.
July 11, 2022
It took me 6 weeks to get an office visit for a critical issue in order to see the doctor and it would have been really helpful and for my care to see the doctor before six weeks.
July 06, 2022
The front staff was very, very helpful to me, as I don't understand computers at all. The nurse was also very attentive and helped me to get up and down off of the exam table. Dr. Leong was just as pleasant as she could be, and made the exam somewhat doable. I'm an old woman and they were very, very kind to me. I would recommend them to anybody.
July 06, 2022
Dr Leong is the best! She is very easy to talk too and explains things in a very understandable way!
June 16, 2022

I had much stress about symptoms I had been experiencing. Dr. Leong was very thorough, clear and compassionate in helping me to understand what I was experiencing. She explained what my lab results meant and what I need to do to stay healthy. Thank you
June 09, 2022
Wait time is always an issue. Quick check in and not too long to get called in, but too be seen by the Dr is a wait. I waited about 40 minutes
June 09, 2022
I have been seeing doctor Joy Leong for several years and have been very satisfied. I feel comfortable with her. Dr.Leong is an amazing physician. I have recommended friends and family to her.
June 09, 2022
It's ridiculous that I had to wait so long to be seen and no one came to tell me that the dr would be taking long. I had to go out & ask if the dr had forgotten about me. I waited 1 hr in that room!!! My appointment was at 3pm and the provider walked in my room until after 4pm and she spent less than 10min with me. Absolutely ridiculous! If I had been late to my appointment I'm sure my appointment would've been canceled and I would've had to pay a penalty fee.
June 03, 2022
Dr Joy, was amazing. Not only was she invested in our care but took the time to explain and answer any questions we had.
June 02, 2022
Appt was at 3:15. Check in nurse took me to the back at 3:10, weighed me, took my blood pressure and then said,"I'll be right back." She never came back. I waited in the room until 3:30 until another nurse came in and took over the questions and told me to undress, etc. I waited for 20 minutes for the second nurse to come in the room and tell me to undress, etc.
May 25, 2022
Dr (name removed) was thorough and asked many questions so she could provide a proper diagnosis. She was very personable and spent the time needed so I felt truly taken care of. It was a very pleasant experience thanks to Dr (name removed) and the staff. I expected Urgent care to be a nightmare but I was pleasantly surprised.
May 23, 2022
I waited 45 minutes in the assigned room and the doctor spent 10 minutes with me. She then proceeded to walk towards the exit door while I was asking questions. She was dismissive.
May 17, 2022
She is a very nice person and the office staff is very nice and friendly

Yes, Dr. Joy Leong has always been a very great doctor and has always been professional. But yet, very warm towards her patients with very nice bed side manner. So, just want to say how much I appreciate her service. And it's always been a great experience going in when I scheduled my appointments with her.
January 31, 2022
I think it [word removed] that people have to pay for parking. I witnessed an elderly man struggling ahead of me in his car trying to pay to get out and it seemed so difficult for him. They should have assistance for those who are not good with tech stuff or offer free parking to save people like him from that hassle.
January 26, 2022
My experience at gynecologist was excellent. I was greeted and welcomed when I arrived and treated very well by doctors and staff. Thank you!
January 25, 2022
I absolutely love Dr. Joy. I, every time I go see her, I just feel very at ease. I love that she listens to me and explains everything. I had to leave my insurance and go to a different insurance. Just got back to PIH. So excited that I get to have Dr. Joy again. She just is wonderful.
January 25, 2022
A good experience and Dr Leong a great Dr
January 25, 2022

January 19, 2022
The girl at the reception desk for very sweet and talk to me. I was always. So nice woman, very informative, very kind and very patient takes time to explain things carefully, and there's just all around, wonderful woman, so I was very happy with my visit, but your parking sucks $3. Give me a break, but I know everybody else has to charge to other than that. It was a great visit. Bye.
January 19, 2022
Amazing staff! Have had nothing but a great experience at the Women's center. Top quality health care.
January 18, 2022
I had a great experience
January 18, 2022
The only difficulty I had was that when I schedule the appointment with Dr. Leong. They had placed my appointment for with the wrong doctor. So I got a text confirmation and it said that my appointment was scheduled with [name removed] and I had no idea who [name removed] is so I had to call the office to make the correction, but they got me in a timely than manner. I did have to wait a long time to get the appointment because Dr. Leong I guess is in very very high demand. And so that was very difficult and also going through the menu and waiting online, for someone to answer the phone to make The appointment was very long, so that could be hopefully remedied. Thank you. Bye.
January 10, 2022
I didn't realize I could select all fours, but Dr. Leong on all four. She was precious. She was awesome. Thank you.

Very patient and responsible?
December 22, 2021
Dr. Leong is a WONDERFUL doctor who is confident and knowledgeable with excellent bedside manner. She is one reason why I have stayed with PIH. I am unhappy with the focus on the monetary value of patient care that PIH has shifted to. If it was not for doctors such as Dr. Dudeja, Dr. Leong and Dr. Nguyen, I would absolutely NOT remain with PIH. Sadly, this health care company is an example of CAPITALISM at its finest. :(
