Patient Comments (3)
in Caldwell, ID |
He spent over an hour in very near silence and clearly not wanting us to talk in the room while he read the paperwork we sent in over a month prior. He based his entire opinion off of what my son's teacher submitted, and his teacher made it very clear in her report that she does not like my son. Which still I understand has some value. However Dr. Leavell spent maybe two minutes talking to my son, and then made his decision. I am extremely disappointed with the care he provided.

Needs to see his own patients and not send them to his extremely unprofessional nurse practioner Dr. Powell

At 10yrs old, my son had a nervous breakdown. Then we found Dr. Leavell. He did miraculous work with my son, and also with helped his brother who has Aspergers. He called after hours to check on us, he got us new medications he thought would help as soon as they were on the market. Time and time again, he showed great professional care and treatment.
