What People Say About Dr. Luis Leon, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Luis Leon MD, is arrogant and dismissive. He refused on 7 occasions to answer ANY questions, in hospital or on follow-up in private office (Tucson Heart). He flipped up his palm and said, “No questions.” This is disgusting behaviour! Unbelievable. Avoid him like SARS-CoV-2.

He did surgery on my husband and when he was in recovery they had to rush him back in again as he had no circulation in either foot. My husband has been in excruciating pain ever since. Surgery was in Nov. and we finally had an appointment for a follow up in Jan. The doctor never showed. The office and staff were despicable. We could not even shut the door to our room or we would get locked in! This "doctor" has never bothered to follow up and ask how my husband is doing. He is too busy running from place to care about his patients and we were appalled that he could not afford a cleaner, more decent office. We will not recommend him to anyone!
