Dr. Leonard has been my neurologist since roughly 1998. I suffered a work
related head injury, and Dr Leonard was, and I believe still is, the only
Neurologist in the Austin area to treat a workmans comp case. I was turned
away from other neurologists for months before finding Dr. Leonard.
He was the only Doctor who took my condition seriously. I am very grateful for
his concern. If it weren't for Dr. Leonard I truly don't know what my
life would be like now. A head injury is very scary, and when know one
believes you have a problem because you don't "look ill" takes its toll. I
know how it feels to be accused of something that isn't true.
Dr. Leonard validated that I indeed have post concussion syndrome. He sent me
to cognitive therapy to restore skills. To this day I am still on medication
in order to
maintain an active lifestyle.
I am in fear of loosing him as a Doctor, as my workman comp benefits will be
taken away, and there is no one else willing to take my case. I need the
It is a shame to see someone truly concerned w/ his patients and profession be
striped of his life's work. I hope none of the charges against him are
true, he has never inappropriately touched me in all these years.
Please take into consideration the many lives that are being affected by these
claims. It does not only affect Dr. Leonard. Many people are suffering because
of false claims. I am very fearful what will happen to me once my prescription
runs out. I can only imagine the fear Dr. Leonard must live with.
