Dr. Leonard completed her residency at the Molly Center at Hackensack University Medical Center focused on pediatric endocrinology and asthma and authored a published research study on “baby-friendly” hospitals with concentrations on breastfeeding and family wellness. She was recognized as a specialist in lactation in 2014, running an outreach support group at Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ.

Dr. Leonard’s own personal experiences with accessing the healthcare system for her children served as the catalyst for this idea of having someone who medically knows the patient following  them wherever they go. Identifying the pressing demand for immediate healthcare needs, Dr. Leonard has determined that this model of concierge medicine provides the timely, effective and accessible care that patients need and deserve.
