Biography & Education


To Claudia Leonard, M.D., an important part of taking good care of her patients is encouraging them to take good care of themselves. “I strive to teach patients about their health or illness, and to involve them in making good decisions about their care,” she says. She also emphasizes the importance of treating each patient with respect and concern.

A graduate of Harvard University and Harvard Medical School, Dr. Leonard completed her internal medicine residency at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston. Before joining the Department of Medicine faculty practice, she worked as the chief medical officer and sole physician for a 45-bed hospital in Kenya. She is board-certified in internal medicine.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr Claudia Leonard is always there when I need her. She helped me deal with the death of my husband and is always making sure that I follow up on my A1C .
Providence Health & Services Patient

I appreciate the care, attention to detail, the thorough observation and listening to my ailments, and particularly, the wise and astute decisions made for my care.
Providence Health & Services Patient

I have had the most positive possible experiences with Dr. Leonard for the nearly twenty years I have been in her care. She has also provided wonderful care for my late husband, a cancer patient, and for my mother, whom Dr. Leonard cared for as a diabetic patient before placing her in hospice at age 90.

Claudia is the best!! It's too bad she can't be cloned! I feel so fortunate to have found her 10+ years ago!!
