Specialties

Dr. Leon S Dure IV has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I would not recommend this doctor. Took no time with my son after we waited 8 months for this appointment. Dismissed all concerns and issues that we have been dealing with for 4 years! Told us it is natural for children to have bad headaches! Dismissed the information from his teacher that he was having seizures in class! Told me "I've seen worse".

No Worries.

He was very good with my son. I loved the way he interacted with him. He got down on his level as well as mine. He made us feel at ease. If we ever do need another visit with a neurologist I would love for Dr. Dure to be ours.

Run the other way from this Doctor!!!!!

This Doctor has been indecisive in his diagnose with our child and refuses to bring in other Doctors to assist him. He refuses to speak to us the parents on the phone, or schedule appointments in his office. But prefers to communicate by email. He also has requested 10 SECOND videos taken with a phone as opposed to actual seeing the child in person.
