Dr. Leithead is a great doctor; one you would want to have. He is very attentive and kind. Many times I came to the office and I was early and he seen me early. When I had my surgery, he called several times throughout the day to ensure I was doing fine and that I wasn’t in a lot of pain. When I went home, he checked on me for several days. The hospital where I had the surgery, Southern Surgical in Slidell, La, provide the best service. I am a nurse plus my daughter, She said she have never seen a hospital that provides service like that. She said, ‘Mom, you have an awesome doctor. When I had my surgery, everyone who was involved during the surgery, came out and spoke to my family. I couldn’t get a better doctor. Any problems I have, I can call and he responds right away. Thank you Dr. Leithead and your staff for the awesome service I receive.
Sincerely, Your patient, Peggy Landry... See MoreSee Less

Dr. Leithead is absolutely one of the most efficient Doctors I have ever met, one of his first statements to me while looking me directly in my eyes was "You are the most important factor in this equation, you matter." Wow🙂 and he ment EVERY word. I was educated on the entire process as well as my family. My surgical scars look like scratches from a fine point pen😊. My attending nurses praised him to me as well as his colligues.This is the best Doctor you could have for your journey he won't leave you he walks with you professionally and gentily. Thank you Doc you are hands down the Best.... See MoreSee Less

I want to thank this amazing doctor for helping me to live a healthier life. This is my surgeon. Today I had a check up and it went great. I weight 144 and I’m 4 pounds away from my goal. I’ve lost 91% excess weight. He said I look great and I am rocking this weight loss journey. I couldn’t be happier with the progress I’ve made. He provided me a tool and I’ve done the work to get the weight off♥️... See MoreSee Less

Dr. Leithhead did my surgery on March 31, 2017. I had the sleeve, I had no problems and never even needed a pain pill. His thoughts and concerns for my feelings and trying to help my situation was handled very well . He said he like to see us smile and see how this surgery changes our lives. I am down 94 lbs and have a new life. I would recommend him to others. Thank you Dr. Leithead , keep up the great work .... See MoreSee Less
