Specialties

Dr. Carlos Leon has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

I like Dr. Leon

Dr. Leon is a very busy guy, but he still takes time to answer your questions and explain things. He's also very caring. If something goes wrong, he'll speak with you on the phone, even if he's in the middle of doing something else. He makes you feel very comfortable, rather than intimidated, in his presence. Three cheers for Dr. Leon!

HORRIBLE!!!!

Going in with my boyfriend, we waited aboubt 45mins before being put into a room then waited an additional 20 minutes or so. when the doctor finally came in, he was with him for about 5 minutes and left, came back for another two minutes for an exam and then left us waiting in the room for a whopping hour and a half while he waited for permission from the specialist to give him an antibiotic. we were there for three hours and seen for less than 10 min which I find unacceptable. The nurse was also rude when she came in to have him prep for the exam, she told me "you can leave now" but i asked my boyfriend and he told me to stay. I work in the medical field and i know that it is the patients choice whether anyone else is present or not during exams. I was also disturbed to see that he treated my boyfriend as if he was bothering him since it was an emergency appt and completely ignored me, not even a hello. COMPLETELY rude and would NOT recommend going unless you like wasting your time with people who are rude and do very little to help you.

I was very happy with the experience. Would definitely recommend to my friends (and have done so already). Waiting time was a bit longer than expected, but not too bad.

Good experience

I've been very happy with this doctor so far. I'm not an easy person to please, but he answered my questions and spent time explaining my problem and treatment in a simple way to me and my daughter.
