Dr. James Leoni                                                 NCMA Primary Care Physician

The Leoni’s have been practicing medicine in Sonoma County for three generations. With six physicians and two nurses in the family, one might say  helping others is in their blood. Dr. James Leoni is a primary care physician with Northern California Medical Associates and his son James Jr. seems to be following in his footsteps.

For over half a century, the Leoni family has made its mark on Petaluma by helping and healing generation of  people in the community. The patriarch of the family, Angelo Leoni (James’ father) reflects on his exceptional family with always a hint of humor, “I never encouraged them to be doctors. They did all this foolishness all on their own.” Dr. James Leoni credits his success and passion for the medical field to his father who stood as a driving force in his studies and still stands as his role model as a physician, father and son.
