      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.
