What Patients are Saying!

  • 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 .
