This office is like taking a trip to Disney World! I have been coming to this office and have seen all 4 doctors and by far Dr. Leon is the BEST. He is an Old fashion doctor that takes his time to listen and care. Dr. Leon is so intelligent and has never misdiagnosed my boys.

The absolute worst! Waited two hours with a sick child. Staff is awful. I had to call my own insurance company bc the girl couldn't figure out how to do it. They told us to come in at 1:45 and didn't see us until 3:45. Do not waste your time!!! Open light sockets, dirty office. Horrible. They should tell you that you will be "squeezed in" when you make a sick appt. what is even the point of making appt!!!

Dr, Leon is a great doctor and very kind to the kids. He knows what he is talking about and explains everything you need to know. He was my pediatrian when I was a kid, and now I have him as my 4 month old daughters doctor. I made sure that my insurance took him as a doctor otherwise I would not go with the company. He is also the doctor for my 4 nephews and my niece. One of my sisters drive from Port Saint Lucie to take her son here for his doctors appointment

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
