24/7 Hotline Ready to Help
If you’re not sure what kind of care you need, please call our 24/7 hotline. We can:
- Answer your questions

- Send you a paramedic and ambulance when needed
Instant Communication Between Paramedics and Doctors
If you need an ambulance, our contracted paramedics can help you decide if you need to go to an Urgent Care or the emergency room. Our on-call doctors can advise the paramedics, while at your home, as to whether we should take you to the urgent care or the hospital.
Short Wait Time
Since health problems don’t keep business hours, Leon’s Urgent Care clinics are open seven days a week. You are evaluated immediately so we can treat the most urgent problems first. Even if your concern isn’t serious, we will expedite your visit, as we value your time.
Leon offers more services than most urgent care centers, such as infusions and intubations, and life-saving equipment is always on hand for use if needed. Even though we work to treat you quickly, you’ll get the same respect, kindness and family-like feeling you experience with all Leon services.
