Specialties

Dr. Leon Driss 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.

  • Hospice and Palliative Medicine

    Hospice care & Palliative medicine specialists focus their practice on pain management, symptom relief and qualify-of-life treatments to relieve the suffering of terminally ill patients. These doctors have specialized expertise in the treatment of patients with serious illnesses, advanced diseases and conditions resulting from catastrophic injury. Though often they work within hospice settings, they prevent and alleviate suffering appropriate at any age and stage of disease and can work alongside practitioners providing curative treatments.
    Hospice care & Palliative medicine focuses on depression, pain, fatigue, constipation, nausea, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and difficulty sleeping, among other conditions. They also alleviate psychosocial distress and other stressors that accompany terminal illnesses. They are skilled in guiding families through legal and ethical decision-making in end-of-life care and can address spiritual issues at these times. By coordinating care across settings by improving communication among providers, they improve access to information for families so that they understand the patient's condition and treatment options.

His practice won't change,

He is rude and inconsiderate towards his patients. His staff is even worse. when he asks you a question and you attempt to answer he will interrupt you. When he's finished talking with you he tells you he will be right back, then sends his medical assistant in to tell you the appointment is over. Both he and his assistants will lie to you to get you out of his office and then refuse to help you once you've left, his trick is writing prescriptions he knows will not be filled. My recommendation is run don't walk from this practice and this staff. He charges you a fee for not making an appointment and will turn around and have you wait an hour or more in his waiting room or his exam room. I have read the comments and I'm pretty sure they were wrote by his staff members and not patients most of his patients would never rate him that high.

Has taken decent care of my (few) needs

Dr Driss is my "primary" physicial. Lucky thus far, Dr Driss has referred me to a urologist and otherwise has tended to my needs during regular vists.

POOR STAFF SUPPORT...

In this day and age, it's disheartening to find a seemingly good doctor who is supported by a selfish, incompetent and lazy staff. I'm a Type 1 diabetic since 1963 and have seen Dr. Driss for the past 3 years. My insurance company - Medicare supplement - requires an annual pre-authorization for my prescriptions and, this year, Driss' staff has refused to comply, claiming they "don't have time!" 54 years, Type 1 diabetes, how much "TIME" do I have without my prescriptions?

Heir Dr. is a piece of work

Dr. wrote a prescription for cough syrup due to sinusitis, product is not available due to back orders to all pharm's in the area. Would not change the script, told me to find a pharm that carries it. I have MS, thought he should enlighten me with his greater knowledge of my condition than my Neurologist at Barrow's Neurology which is #3 in world. This guy is a joke, i'll never step foot anywhere near his office again. It's no wonder you can walk in and see the quack.
