The assistant to Dr. Leon is rude and discourteous. I have told Dr. Leon that she needs to find a better way in which to communicate with the patients.

Ankle replacement 2 .5 years ago

Kind, caring, and easy to talk with physician. I am an R.N. and would recommend this man to anyone with foot or ankle problems.He gave me my life back. I am hiking, biking and learning to kiteboard at age 60.When I came to him I was in pain 24 hours and slowly became unable to walk across the street.I am still amazed that I have a titanium ankle.
