I don't always feel like concerns I bring up are considered. I realize the doctor is there for the "big picture" issues, but sometimes I have other, even related, issues that need to be addressed, and I feel like those fall by the wayside and don't get heard.

Dr. Carranza-Leon is such a caring compassionate provider. She has been a blessing to me and is always encouraging, always listens to my concerns and really helps me improve my health with both behavioral (things I can do) and medical (prescription) answers. I'm so glad I found her!

I feel as if my provider rushes through our visits at times.
Patient | July 28, 2017

She told me to continue like I was with my avg. B/G above 300. No concern!
Patient | July 27, 2017

Dr. Carranza-Leon is the absolute best and I recommend her to anyone that has a need for an endocrinologist. She always makes me feel like I am her only patient that day and I am always confident that she remembers my medical history. She shows an amazing attention to detail and remembers conversations that we had at my previous appointment - a year ago. She is simply amazing.
