Dr. Deirdre S Leake has the following 2 specialties
An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Dr. Leake has been helpful to my wife and is very professional, but as a long term businessman that works with dozens of physician offices in a professional setting her office staff is unfriendly, pretentious, and overbooks appts, we are looking actively for another doctor due to this. It seems she like she is their friend rather than their boss
Dr. Leake is a FANTASTIC doctor, surgeon and person! I am one of those people who was born with a chin/neck that went straight down from the end of my chin to my chest. It didn't look too bad until I started to age! It became droopy, saggy, and just awful looking by my 40's! About 15 years ago ( I was around 43-44) I decided it was time to have it fixed. I went to a well know plastic surgeon in Jacksonville...I distinctly remember on the questionnaire they had me fill out, I highlighted, underlined and circled everything I wrote down about my saggy neck....that was the reason I was there, and that is what I wanted to have fixed! He told me he could fix it. I knew immediately after the surgery that my neck was going to be the same, he had just stretched the skin a little tighter, but didn't fix the underlying problem! Every time I went back for a followup, I was told "give it a year". I had already given it 40+ years, so I knew it was a failure. I actually met Dr. Leake socially, and I told her I had had a facelift. She was surprised, because I sure didn't look like I had had a facelift, my neck was by this time (5-6 years later) sagging and drooping. I was in my late 40's by then...she pulled me over to the side and said that she could tell just by looking at me the muscles and tendons of my neck had not undergone any strapping which is what actually tightens a neck. Dr. Leake told me she could fix it. I think I probably called her office that same day and booked the surgery! The surgery was VERY successful...I had a real chin for the first time in my life with a a definition between my chin and neck! It was fantastic! I actually didn't believe it was possible for it to look so great! A few years after that the skin on my face had started to become saggy, and I spoke to Dr. Leake asking her if I could get another face lift. I am absolutely not a vain person, but I DO NOT like looking older than I actually am. She told me that I could have another facelift and told me that she believed it would turn out quite well. I was very worried because I had already had that bad facelift, and I was concerned about the nerves growing back and skin getting stretched beyond it abilities. Dr. Leake did my second facelift about 8 years ago, which I refer to as my REPAIR job, and it turned out beautiful! I couldn't of been happier! I really had very little pain, and practically no bruising at all. These days I keep my face looking fresher/younger with fillers and Botox. I try to visit Dr. Leake every 6 months to have a little filler to fill out my cheekbones and fill in some of the spots that tend to thin out with age. Plus I get Botox when its needed. I would never trust another doctor to my face!! I am always proud to tell people that Dr. Leake takes care of my face, and that I have undergone 2 facelifts, one bad, one good...the good one with Dr. Leake. If you are considering having a facelift or a nose-job I would highly recommend Dr. Leake. After all, she specializes in FACES..
I waited 2 months to get an appointment with Dr. Leake. Everyone raved and said she was great. She treated me for some pre-cancer on my face. She zapped me a few times and then told me to come back in 6 weeks. When I expressed some vanity concerns she said, "well you have nice hair". Really? I was taken a back. She spent maybe 10 minutes with me and then rushed me on my way, I didn't feel like she was concerned about me or what I might be interested to look and feel better. But her staff was eager to provide the new Beauty magazine where she was featured. Perhaps she believes her own press. I will go back for the follow up and see how appt #2 goes. If no better, I will move on. A very disappointing first visit.
