While this isn't my first rodeo for annual visits, I've seen a handful of doctors from this practice, (all great at what they do by the way), but I will continue to come back to Dr. Joy Leong. She put me at ease and was very gentle during her examination. She was VERY thorough in her explanations and made sure all my questions were answered. She even made it a point to discuss other woman's health issues that come with age and my background, unrelated to my reproductive system, to make sure I was taking care of myself in those areas as well. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Leong to someone who gets nervous regarding these types of visits, or just wants a pleasant experience all the way around. She's great at her profession.
