What Patients Are Saying

Dr. McCasland has been successfully guiding me through the rocky road of RA for almost 12 years. She has kept me fully informed as to choices of treatment and options open to me. Almost as important is she does this with a kind, caring and friendly way. If you are suffering from the effects of RA, I would strongly urge you to contact her for a consultation. She can help!

Dr. Leslie McCasland was the first to diagnose me with R.A. and has treated it aggressively, allowing me to lead a normal life, despite the condition. I could not be more pleased with everything that is being done. Dr. McCasland treats the whole person with such professionalism and kindness.

I have been a patient of Dr. McCasland for 10 years. She is the most caring and wonderful doctor I have ever known. She has gotten my RA under control, which no other doctor could do. You are a real person to her, and she cares deeply. If you need a rheumatologist, I suggest you call her.
