Dr. Leavitt is a board-certified family physician. He received his undergraduate biology degree at University of Utah, his medical degree (DO) at Touro Nevada College of Osteopathic Medicine, and his residency training locally at Family Medicine Residency of Idaho. During residency, he, along with his wife and three children, fell in love with the Treasure Valley and the rest of Idaho and decided to put down roots.
He enjoys working in family medicine because of its variety and because of his love for continual learning. Getting to know patients well and promoting healthy lifestyles is deeply important to him. He considers himself a proceduralist and prides himself on his abilities with minor surgery. He is also a hospice director and is committed to the comfort needs of the terminally ill and dying.
When not working, he has a variety of interests that include woodworking, home improvement, gardening, and a host of additional outdoor activities. If wielding a pen, he is more likely to be sketching than writing, and if reading anything other than medical text, he is likely to be learning a new skill. He is known for being handy and is proud of his “MacGyver skills.” He is a very firm believer that laughter is one of THE best medicines.
