Patient Reviews
Aug 21, 2019
Dr Leyva consistently portrays excellent knowledge in areas related to pediatric gastroenterology. She has always taken the time to explain, guide and comfort- These are 3 areas that I have always found to be most important in any doctor. She stands out as a physician that genuinely cares about her field and her patients.
