After enduring over a year of unprofessional and ambivalent care from another cardiologist in Jersey City (i.e. refused prescription refills and surly/unprofessional administrative/support staff), I bit the bullet and went on the hunt for a new cardiologist. Making the initial appointment was easy and check-in for my first visit was quicker and less of a hassle than expected. I was seen by the doctor (not his assistant or the nurse practitioner) and he was very thorough in his evaluation. Based upon my initial visit, I would recommend Dr. Leon to anyone in the Mile Square area in need of a cardiologist.
