I have known Dr. Leon for 16 years, and in that time he has performed three critical GI tests for me. As a founding physician of MN Gastroenterology, he has wonderful credentials and communication skills, and works with an equally gifted nursing staff (although I have only met with him at his Bloomington location.) Dr. Leon has received repeated accolades from MPLS/ST.PAUL Magazine for his achievements, is board certified and a recognized name and in our medical community.

My sister has dementia and is not able to speak for herself appropriately; I am her legal Health Care Agent. She swallowed an object that is lodged in her small intestine. Dr. Leon did a colonoscopy which the hope was he would find & remove the object, causing potential serious consequences. He said he could not find the object she swallowed. Although following this colonoscopy an Xray showed the object was still in the same place in her small intestine! Why no Xray done during procedure???
