“I have been a patient of Dr. Leoncavallo for two years. He has removed cataracts from both eyes and is also treating me for glaucoma. He is thorough, patient, professional, and top notch, in my opinion. He has a good way of putting you at ease. I did not rate the last area as I have not had any reason (since my surgeries) for anyone to follow up after my visits. I cannot say enough good things about his staff. They are courteous, professional, and skilled at putting their patients at ease. I highly recommend this team of professionals.” – M. Diamon
