I waited in the office on my first visit for over an hour. Made an appointment for a procedure and wasn't even called that the procedure was cancelled. As a school employee, was off and having the procedure at the end of that business week, and the office manager Marta tells me that they were going to call me and cancel the appointment because he had to take another doctor's patients. Huh? Since when does that happen...Oh since he only had 2 patients for a procedure and would see 10 patients and get more money....ahhh that explains it. Then I rebook for another date and he cancels again. When I called to speak to Marta, it felt like she didnt want to speak to me as I waited for over 10 minutes. She actually pawned me off to another person in the office , after she stated that she would take care of me initially. I would nnever recommend this doctor or any other doctor or service this office provides. if I can give him a zero star I would.

I can’t rave enough about Dr. Leon. He is an expert in his field. He takes the time to explain treatment for my issues (acid reflux/EOE). I have annual visits with him to track my progress. His staff is extremely professional and are very accommodating when it comes to scheduling my appointments. You will not find a more compassionate and knowledgeable Gastroenterologist in southern Florida. I’ve read some reviews stating his office is always busy and sometimes patients have to wait a little bit to see him…that’s because he’s that good! Well worth the wait!! Highly recommend if you want quality care!!
