I would recommend Dr. Leighton to everyone. He takes time in your appointment to really talk to you about your concerns and answers any questions you may have. I personally have called him in his capacity as a hematologist although he sees me in his capacity as an oncologist. He called me back and listened to my concerns, answered my questions and told me I can call him anytime. Plus, he is just a very nice person.
