RE question , not knowing what insurance coverage a person might have, it is unlikely that one would recommend this care provider. However, that is not to say that I do discuss with friends my overall satisfaction with Dr. Leard and staff.

Dr. Leard was amazing. I honestly don't think I couldn't done the procedure, while mild, if it wasn't for her. She guided me through everything.
