Dr. Leong is very kind and gentle and professional. What I don't like is phoning to pih. It's always a long wait and hard to schedule appointments sooner. And what I hate is pih charge us parking.

April 27, 2021
She is absolutely amazing!
April 21, 2021
When you have an appointment at 9:00, why does the patient need to wait like 40 or 45 minutes to see the doctor? The patient should be able to see the doctor according to their time appointment. Even if it's, you know, if it's a little 10 after, 15 after is okay, but to have to wait 45 minutes. That's too long. The doctor should be able to see the patient at the patient's appointment time.
April 21, 2021
While I was there She was called out for an emergency and quickly rushed back to finish seeing her patients. I appreciate her loyalty and dedication. Very friendly and easy to speak to about personal issues.

I was very comfortable. I was nervous at the beginning, when I went into the office. But after I saw the service that I received from the young ladies in the front, to the doctor, and how quickly I was escorted into the exam room, and my exam was almost immediately after I had gotten undressed and put a gown, that they were in and they were out and I was done in no time at all. And it was very comfortable. All my questions were answered. I did ask questions and I do like the doctor's responses that I can understand. And that's all. Thank you.
March 22, 2021

February 23, 2021
Both staff and doctor should have reviewed my Medical Record prior to meeting with me. If the goal is to move to a EMR, then they should model it. Likewise, the doctor would have known to follow up on recommendations made previously. Fortunately I could advocate for myself, but many patients cannot.

January 13, 2021
My only frustration was with parking. There have been significant changes to parking at the PIH facility in near the hospital and there was no instructions with my appointment and signage was horrible and I drove around and around and around and when I called, I got a central operator that didn't work at the facility and wasn't able to help me. So better signage and maybe communication about where to park as part of appointment verifications would be very helpful. Thank you.
January 13, 2021
Very happy with Dr.Leong.
January 12, 2021
My experience was great
