Dear Dr. Leone,

I would like to thank you and your incredible team for my successful recovery and result after my total hip replacement surgery. When I came to you, I’d heard you were the “BEST” but I had no idea what that meant. On my first visit and after my X-ray, you explained calmly and clearly to both my husband and myself what my problem was and why I was hurting. We did not feel rushed during our appointment with you! Meeting your staff was also a phenomenal experience! Since we met Susan, your PA, we had again an opportunity to ask questions and clarify certain concerns. There was never any pressure by anyone to proceed with the operation!

After deciding to do the procedure, I came back with my husband to meet with you again to review my questions and concerns. Your whole staff was informative, knowledgeable, supportive and very kind!

We were also advised to attend a pre-surgical class on hip replacement at Holy Cross Hospital. My husband and I found the class informative and it helped alleviate any anxiety I had about what to expect at the hospital. I tend to be a worrier, but after all the information I received at your office and from the class, I felt relaxed and confident. I knew I had made the correct decision and I was in the right hands with you and your staff.

Dr. Leone and Susan visited me daily in the hospital and oversaw my progress. He and his staff gave me a list of exercises to do in and out of the pool and I recommend that everyone follow their recommendations like I did!

I am now 3 1/2 months post surgery and I feel “brand new!” I have no pain when I walk, climb stairs or exercise! The experience had been amazing and I will not hesitate to replace my other hip with Dr. Leone and his staff when necessary!

Thank you Dr. Leone. You are amazing!
