“My name is John Dorchak. I reside in DeWinton, Alta Canada. In Canada, we have socialized medicine. So in my opinion, it is not as good as American medicine. Second, you have a wait your turn to see the doctors and specialists. I was having trouble with my right ankle, knee, and foot and went and received two different x-rays at separate times. It kept getting worse and the swelling was horrific. The Canadian doctors left me in limbo and had no real answers.

My ankle had a grinding sound and the pain was terrible. I finally phoned Dr. McLeod and sent my x-rays. She told me to come to Las Vegas ASAP, so she could see me. She took one look at me and said OMG. She proceeded to take x-rays and ultrasounds. Both pictures showing multiple broken bones. She prescribed pain killer and came up with a plan on how to fix my ankle. The surgery took 4 hours. Dr. McLeod put 6 41/2 inch screws and plate to fuse my ankle. She also installed a bone stimulator to help with the healing because of my diabetes. 

I was healing fairly well for the first 2 months, but then the healing digressed. Dr. McLeod attributed it to me spending 4-5 hours a day betting horses in the casinos with smoke exposure.  Dr. McLeod sprang into action and recommended using stem cells to retrigger the healing process. She was right and the stem cells was the answer. I started to heal very fast. 

I owe my leg and life to Dr. McLeod. I put up with so much pain and suffering until I finally got help.  She is the Reconstructive Queen of Foot, Ankle, and Legs. She really knows her stuff and is easy to talk to. She does not talk over you and explains in detail the procedure. She goes the extra mile before and after surgery. For example, when I was released from the hospital, she was there from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm;  when I had a fall at home, Dr. McLeod immediately got an x-ray machine and technician to come to my home. Thankfully, I was fine. 

Yes, we have socialized medicine in Canada, but I am sure glad that I know Dr. McLeod. In our country, you would not get service like I was given by Dr. McLeod, the hospital, and all the people involved. 

The saying is “You get what you pay for, and I am glad I paid instead of losing my leg and maybe my life.”

“I fell and broke my ankle in December and went to Dr. McLeod. The care I got could not be better. She fixed my ankle and its just like new. A better and more caring doctor could not be found. I have been recommending her to my friends. They are also pleased with her care.”
