  • André M. de Leon, MD, Board Certified in Family Medicine, specializes in Urban Family Medicine with an interest in Sports Medicine. Dr. de Leon graduated with a Bachelors of Arts degree from University of California at Los Angeles before receiving his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine in East Brunswick, New Jersey. He completed his Urban Family Medicine residency at The Ohio State University Medical Center, Department of Family Medicine.

    “Primary care is a truly rewarding discipline of medicine and it creates a dichotomy for anyone who chooses to follow its path. It allows the physician to be a continuous learner, as medicine is an ever-growing and changing landscape, and it also places the practitioner in a position of teacher, educating and guiding patients in navigating their own health,” says Dr. de Leon. “As a primary care physician, I wear these two very different hats, but my one commonality is the patient. It is my ultimate goal to improve my patients’ quality of life and give them the means to take ownership of their own health.”

    As part of his Urban Family Medicine practice, Dr. de Leon participated in a medical student organization dedicated to providing medical services to the indigenous Carib population of the Commonwealth of Dominica. He also worked a one-month rotation at Maluti Adventist Hospital in Lesotho, Africa, focusing on acute care and HIV and tuberculosis diagnosis and treatment.

    Dr. de Leon’s interests include general musculoskeletal injury and treatment, and wound care. When he is not practicing medicine, Dr. de Leon enjoys alpine skiing, snowboarding, tennis and golf.
