About Me

Care Philosophy

I diagnose and treat problems of the hand, wrist and elbow with medically proven therapies that maximize recovery and minimize interruptions to people's lives. When non-operative care is no longer an option, I perform minimally invasive surgery whenever possible to expedite the healing process, as well as minimize or eliminate scarring.

What People Say About Dr. Serafin DeLeon III, MD

I had a hand injury two months ago and Dr Serafin DeLeon, Dr Stacy Schmitz, and their staff has been amazing. I came in the first time expecting the worst and left hopeful for a full recovery. The doctors, nurses, and staff were understanding and patient with me and the pain I was going through. Then, after issues with my insurance, the doctors fought for me to get the surgery needed. They went above and beyond for me and would be forever grateful.

Horrible complications from minor surgery. Permanent damage. Had to insist that this guy slow down and pay attention. It was a constant challenge. He thinks that he can accomplish a lot and multi-task really well - he can't. He doesn't communicate effectively that way and makes a lot of errors as a result - at least that's my assessment at this point. Wish that I had never made an appointment with this practice.

It happened suddenly. I experienced pain in my left wrist near where the thumb and wrist met. The pain went from ok to excruciating (I couldn't even hold a plastic cup!). I was so glad to have found Dr. DeLeon who treated me with professionalism and care. After a few tests, he found that I had DE QUERVAIN SYNDROME and treated me with a steroidal injection (which is known to hurt) with just a little pressure and w/o pain. That night I slept and the next morning I could feel the improvement!!!

I really don't like these places that are get you in get you out but I really don't have a choice I have HMO insurance, which I never had in my life. I have a nerve problem and he really didn't give me anything for pain which I heard doesn't help anyways but that is besides the point not a very warm doctor they have you fill out a ton of paperwork other PA's come in and access you so the Doctor only has to come in at the last minute and not spend a lot of time with you, in and out type of thing

I only wish I visited Dr, Deleon III sooner. He is very comforting, and confident in his own work. He repaired both my wrists and I could not be happier.
