I love this practice everyone is is super friendly and great to deal with. Dr. DeLeon always takes time with me and explains my conditions so that I can understand. I am lucky to have him as my provider.

Dr. de Leon is a very caring professional Physician. He has taken great care of several members of my family. I would highly recommend him and his office.
Lake City, FL |
Very sick patient asked to be seen in almost emergency situations, two consecutive days, but the clerk said they were completely filled up. I do not know who would permit a non-trained appointment clerk to make these decisions. And no, the clerk is the reason I am getting a new doctor even though I have been with this doctor for many years. Apology from this clerk would be a nice and maybe a training exercise for her. We all have bad days, but medical personnel cannot be only a clerk!
Thank you for providing this feedback, and we are so sorry to hear about your negative experience. This review has been shared with practice management and we would greatly appreciate the opportunity to personally apologize. Please call us directly at (386) 758-6140 so we can work to correct this.

Dr. DeLeon is a caring physician who is easy to discuss issues with. I never feel ill at ease around him and truly believe he is an asset to our community.
Lake City |
Very short and uncompassionnate with me. Always thinks I have an anterior motive or a hidden agenda, doesn't let me explain my med issues. Inspite of all my MRI's and horrific pain I'm in he's more concerned with other personal issues.
