Dr. Carranzo-Leon is wonderful. Very knowledgable on my condition. Took my previous information and went to work to help me with better results and with best quality of life to avoid side affects. Very pleasant and easy to talk to.

Patient | March 1, 2018

I had a very good first visit. She explained everything to me, explained what she was doing during the exam and what she was looking for.
Patient | February 26, 2018

Dr Carranza-Leon takes time to listen. She not only communicated with me in a clear manner, she communicated with my other providers to make them aware of my situation. She is a fantatsic physician.
Patient | February 26, 2018

Dr. Barbara is the best physician I have ever visited.....period. She actually rescued me from the waiting room in November when your system was pretty much not working. It is difficult to make most people understand but the thing most people need to lose weight is motivation. I am motivated to please Dr. Barbara. She tries so hard to help me that I want so badly to have good results for her. Wonderful doctor and wonderful person.
Patient | February 20, 2018

this doctor inspires me to do better in improving my health and gives me great tools to use to work on my A1C numbers. the last group of numbers she gave me to usefor insulin dosages made an immediate dramatic improvement in my daily finger prick numbers. she listens carefully and asks questions to try and solve my questions...she is really an excellent physician!

First time I had met or been to see Dr Leon but was pleased & confident with her as my physician.

the doctor was so very kind and really explained things
Patient | January 30, 2018

Ms. Leon is the best doctor I have ever visited. I trust her to have my best interests.
Patient | January 16, 2018

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.
Patient | January 4, 2018

Did not seem to include my unique issues in treatment-
Patient | January 4, 2018

She is very kind and empathetic to the things that I told her.
Patient | December 29, 2017

these people treated me like I was their only concern. they treated me like the most important person in the building
Patient | December 18, 2017

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!
Patient | December 7, 2017

Patient | September 21, 2017

Completely satisfied with dr.
Patient | September 11, 2017

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.
