Patient reviews for Dr. Jacob Leivent
Doctor Leivent listened, sometimes that is hard to find in a doctor. His office is calming, he is soft spoken and knowledgeable. I have seen many psychiatrists over 20 years and a doctor with all these qualities is hard to find.
Dr. Jacob Leivent is responsive, professional, and made me feel comfortable to talk to. He seems knowledgeable.
He is a very good listener and definitely gave me the advice that I needed to hear.
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.
My experience with Dr. Leivent thus far has been really wonderful. He's an extremely calming presence in the room and has been very attentive the few times I've met with him.
