Miami, FL |
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.
