I just left my amazing appointment with Dr. Leon. He is fantastic with my baby girl, and I love the way he talks to me as a parent. He wants me to be the best parent I can be, and he never holds back his advice! Love you Dr. Leon,

Yes, his wait time is around 30 minutes, I know. Dr. Leon, in my opinion, is worth the wait. The most amazing doctor I have ever met, I wish he could be my doctor, but I am way too old!! My children and I love him! Thank you, Dr. Leon!
