    Leah Sieren was wonderful during his emergency surgery. she explained everything she was doing and eased our minds during this time. his follow up appointment, she was very nice, positive and smiling. she seemed to care about Neyland and told him what a great job he had been doing to take care of his tummy incisions. overall, she was a great doctor to have during a scary time for all of us.
