What People Say About Dr. Fernando Deleon, MD
Reply
Would not recommend. He is rude and dismissive. Go anywhere else. He does not provide information relative to the medical condition. He is just a seat filler for UMMS so they can say they placed a specialist in a rural area. I hope some day doctor treats him as disrespectfully as he treated me.
