I'm a patient of Dr. Leon for many years. He is a brilliant specialist and a very kind and empathetic person. He is a life saver for me. I'm 79 and Dr. Leon helped me to have a happy healthy and active life. I was poisoned by radiation in Chernobyl and I'm still alive because of care of Dr. Leon. You can trust him your mother or your child.

Bad bedside manners. Very little patience with patient. I left very inconclusive and confused. Needless to say, no improvement with medication and no further suggestions. I will be seeing another doctor in the hopes that he will take the time to talk to me about my condition, and most of all show interest. I will not recommend this doctor to anyone.

Doc. Leon is very good at what he does, but the office wait time is ridicules. Even their face time appointments keep you waiting. I’m sitting here waiting for my face time appointment right now, they are 40 minutes late so far. I really have better things to do with my time!!
