I feel bad for doctors who are sick and still have to come into work and put on a smile but that's the one thing Dr Leon is really good about although he wasn't feeling good last week he still had a smile on his face and still treated us with respect and you have to admire that in a physician

Never on time for ot appts. Leaves pts waiting 1.5-over 2 hrs. Maybe he thinks this is normal? No. Appt means an agrees upon time. Both of our time is valuable. If a dr cannot run his office adequately, how can he be trusted to perform procedures??

Staff was overall helpful in communicating with me from my appointment to scheduling my procedure. Dr. Leon was very kind in explaining everything to me in detail. When i went to the checkout i was welcomed with smiles and a cheerful greeting. Will explained the procedure with great detail and answered all my questions. Would recommend this office to family and friends any day

Dr Leon restored my faith in doctors today . He is a doctor who cares about his patients, looks at them when they speak and listens to what they have to say.

Long story short. Don't even bother to go with him. He CLEARLY doesn't care for his patients. My husband had an appointment with him and after waiting for an HOUR he didn't even show up! The NP walked in. The appointment was with Dr Carlos Leon, NOT anyone else! Completely DISRESPECTFUL!!! They waste people's time. They are clearly unorganized and don't care for the patients at all!!!! No wonder they have horrible reviews everywhere!

Dr. Leon is a great doctor who cares for all of his patients. He connects with the patients and makes them feel comfortable from the moment they come in till they leave.

Arrived at 11:16 for an 11;30 appointment. Didn't see Dr. Leon as there were too many patients. Saw Vivian at 12;50 and finally got out at 1;22. Scheduling needs some serious adjustment. It would seem that all the information that needs to be entered in the computer would be scanned into computer before the patient arrives so that the doctor would be freed up during patient consultation.

Arrived for a 1:30 appointment. Wasn't seen until 2:50. Dr. Leon was courteous and helpful, but that is a very, very long wait. The staff in the back office was very kind, but the woman I spoke with on the phone to make the appointment was incredibly rude and put me on hold for 20 minutes. It all seemed very chaotic.

I've only seen Dr. Leon once and he seems to be very knowledgeable and caring. As I was checking out, the last thing he said to me was, "We're going to figure this out" and so I will definitely be keep in him on my team! He is what I've been looking for in a Dr.; someone who REALLY knows their stuff and determined to find out what's REALLY wrong with me. The young lady at the front added the cherry on the top. She was very pleasant and professional.

Wonderful doctor and staffs. But, the office is always very busy and therefore, you do not get seen on-time. If you do not mind the wait, I highly recommend Dr. Leon.
