Patient Stories


“Dr. Leynes called me the evening of my procedure to check in on me to make sure I was ok and had what I needed.  What doctor does that?  I look forward to seeing her at my appointments and feel her office treats me like family.”

~ Betsy in Honolulu, HI

“I was referred to Dr. Leynes for a spot in my mouth and she noticed right away that I was having trouble breathing and walking.  I kept telling her I was fine and just tired that day.  She was concerned and sent me straight to the emergency room and I found out there that I was having a heart attack.  She saw the whole me and I’m so grateful.”

~Lois in Seattle, WA

“I appreciate how the office manager and staff takes care of your questions and jumps at the chance to help you.  Their help figuring out insurance was above and beyond!  Thank you!”

~Philip in Seattle, WA

“It is rare that you make a connection with your doctors.  Dr. Leynes is genuine and persisted in finding answers.  I truly owe her my life.  I have been cancer-free for 4 years!”

~ Thomas in Anchorage, Alaska

“I felt taken care of from the first phone call from their office and now at every appointment I feel like I’m visiting old friends.  I cannot recommend Dr. Leynes enough!”

~ George in Mount Vernon, WA

“I went years without knowing what was wrong with me and at the very first moment I met her, Dr. Leynes reassured me and talked me through an organized plan.  She figured out my problem quickly and was able to help me feel so much better.”

~ Dan in Ferndale, WA

“I brought my aging mother to Dr. Leynes after several doctors were unable to diagnose her oral pain or successfully treat her dry mouth symptoms.  Dr. Leynes was able to diagnose and treat both conditions.  No less important were her excellent listening skills, extraordinary patience, and ability and willingness to explain to my mother her conditions.  I would highly recommend Dr. Leynes as a knowledgeable oral medicine specialist.”  

~ Nina in Blaine, WA

“Dr. Leynes is simply awesome!  She is kind, understanding, and sensitive to a patient’s needs.  She takes the time to listen, assess, and properly diagnose.  She saved me from what could have been a life altering condition, which other doctors failed to effectively diagnose or treat.  I would highly recommend Dr. Leynes due to her professionalism, warmth, and caring nature.”

~ Liz in Bellingham, WA

“Dr. Leynes and her staff are friendly, welcoming, and take the time to get to know you as a patient and listen to your concerns.  I have TMD and have been struggling for solutions for years before I was referred to Dr. Leynes, and she has worked with me on a variety of therapies that have made my life 100 percent better.  I love her!”
