Veronica Leano, M.D.,knew that she wanted to become a doctor from a young age. Her father was a doctor and she traveld with him to see patients. He explained what he was doing and allowed Dr. Leano to assist him in small ways. He often treated underprivileged patients and Dr. Leano remembers watching him take care of those people.
While in school in Mexico, Dr. Leano was assigned to a community program that encompassed several specialties. Many families were placed in her care. The vision of the program was to treat the whole person, mind, body and soul. Dr. Leano enjoyed working with these families, but ultimately decided to complete a dermatology residency because she felt this specialty was needed in Mexico.
Dr. Leano came to the United States after meeting her future husband, who is also physician from Mexico. She chose to enter family medicine because she like the spectrum of services provided in primary care, including well-woman checks, pap smears, physicals, sick visits, management of hypertension, diabetes, cardiac conditions and more.
Dr. Leano still has a passion for dermatology and dermatologic surgery, and actively treats skin tags, epidermal cysts, moles, warts, ingrown nails, acne and genital dermatology concerns.
Dr. Leano believes that being a doctor means serving her patients and the community. She takes pride in listening to her patients unique needs to create a treatment plan that fits their lifestyle. She consistenyl researches the best options for her patietns and includes tham as much as possible in the decision-making process.
Outside of the office, Dr. Leano enjoys swimming, reading and spending time with her family and pets. She likes art, music, travel, good food and cinema.
Dr. Leano is fluent in both English and Spanish.
