Doctor Leivent listened, sometimes that is hard to find in a doctor. His office is calming, he is soft spoken andknowledgeable. I have seen many psychiatrists over 20 years and a doctor with all these qualities is hard to find.

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience with Dr. Leivent because I've had numerous experiences with providers in the past where I felt as though I had difficulty connecting. Dr. Leivent made me feel understood and at ease. I feel comfortable in our sessions, and I have noticed improvement in my well-being. I highly recommend him as a psychiatrist.
