Ratings for Dr. Ronald L. Leon
I am not sure where all of these horrible reviews are coming from !? Dr.Leon is an angel straight out of heaven ! He listened well and was not quick to judge any of my history. It did take long to set up an appointment but of he squeezed everyone in for an emergency appointment then everyone would be coming in ! Hello it's mental health it's all an emergency ! I cannot judge him for that aspect, really nothing they can do. Also as for cost of medication the office does not control that, you should discuss that with your insurance ! As for his staff , I believe you are all speaking about the office manager. I believe her name is Dina or something like that , and she does have a bit of an attitude on her. (Probably from the daily irritation of mental health patients) If you want to speak to someone kinder I would suggest the newer gal which name starts with V. ( I think Veronica) she is super sweet but also gives the same information as D without the sharp tongue. I hope this helps ! :)
As I sit here and read some of these reviews, I am amazed at the negative ones in relation to Dr. Leon. I still thank my lucky stars for that man ! One of his office workers indeed needs customer service skills training but he is wonderful. The first medication he prescribed did have side affects but that surely is not Dr. Leon's fault. ( We are all different) He changed my RX and that was almost 2 years ago. I am back to "normal" and a whole new person, thanks to him. I now live about 40 miles from his office but if I was still struggling with daily issues, i'd surely make the trek to Antioch. I'd suggest that anyone in need of a caring psychiatrist, give Dr. Leon a try and see if it is a good fit for you. As they say, "you can't keep all of the people happy all of the time." I consider myself to be a bit "outspoken and edgy" (to put it nice) For me to rant and rave so highly about him, he has to be damned good because I am quite the critic.
I went to Dr. Leon for help with depression . My first 2 visits he was unavailable and I had to see his assistant . She was 15-20 min late . I saw her for 20 min and all she did was prescribed medication and rushed me out of the office . The first office visit cost $400.00 !!! On top of that , the meds are $250.00 for a 30 day supply !!! The Girl what works the front desk is Very Rude and unprofessional . My Second visit was the same . I was there 15 min and was prescribed more meds . That office visit was 100.00 ....plus another $250 for meds !!! I am more Depressed now than when I was when I started seeing this Doctor . I am no longer a patient for obvious reasons . They just want your $$$ , prescribe Meds and push you out the door !!! Its so sad that our health care system treats people that need help with such greed ........
The inital fee seemed a bit steep seeing that I don't have any insurance. But, Dr. Leon had been my Doctor in Amador County for 8 years and had been the only Doctor who helped me get well enough to keep a job! When he to keep his practice closer to home, I tried 3 different Doctors closer to my home. No Doctor has ever been as effective in helping me. He is definately worth the the drive and price. I would drive and pay twice as much. (I have found that the price is actually very reasonable... I would and have recommended Doctor Leon to anyone who truly wants to be well.
