Dr. Leithe was quite dismissive with my disease issues. I first saw Dr Leithe after moving here; his diagnosis was quite different from my previous cardiologist at my prior home. Issues returned within 2 months so I requested another opinion. A cardiolite stress test and subsequent heart catheterization revealed confirmation of the diagnosis received prior to my care from Dr. Leithe. In conclusion, I can only determine that, like all of us, even the most educated doctors are only human.
