April 25, 2018
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.

Please share my feedback. Dr Leong is the finest doctor I have ever visited. She met with me in her office to listen to my health concerns, she then clearly explained what she would do (with my support), and the exam was completely comfortable for me. Dr. Leong is knowledgeable, patient, and gentle. I found support (Erika) & office staff to be efficient and wait time for my appointment was under 10 minutes! The next day I called with a prescription question, and within an hour Erika returned my call with the perfect response! I drove an hour to seek Dr. Leong's help and it was worth every minute (and more!)
March 29, 2018
I feel that Dr. Leong is a caring and compassionate physician.
March 23, 2018
Dr. Leong took her time with me and discussed the benefits of the prescription/Hormone she renewed for me. Previously my provider denied the estrogen on basis of a 2001 discounted study. Dr. Leong was very up-to-date on her studies and women's issues.
March 23, 2018
This was a very good experience with a type of appointment that can be very uncomfortable. Everyone was very friendly and made me feel comfortable. I didn't wait long and was out in about an hour.

February 28, 2018
I was sent home from the ER with a wrong diagnosis. I contacted Dr Leong a few days later and she had me come in and knew exactly what was wrong with me. She was very helpful and if not for her I could have become even more sick then I was.
