Specialties

Dr. Brian J Leberthon has the following 3 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

Really?

I hope for his sake that Dr. Leberthon reads these reviews. His staff is dragging him down, way down. I hope he will take charge and hire good, kind people to surround himself with, because they look stressed, unhappy and careless and that energy transfers over to his patients. What a shame that his wonderful way of caring for his patients is not put into effect when selecting his staff. I understand his wife's hand is in there, too bad because he is the one the patients seek for care.

Good doc, bad overall experience

Great, knowledgable, caring Doctor with a poor, uncaring, insensitive and under-trained staff. The thing is, the staff represents the doctor and no matter how good he is, unless his crew is on the same level, they bring him way down, and that seems to be okay with him because he's kept the same horrible office manager for years. Too bad, really.

As a newly diagnosed Cancer patient, Dr. LeBerthon took the time to explain all the test that were done by other doctors and how they relate to my diagnosis. He is a compassionate physician and you don't see that in doctors these days. From the Office Manager to the Receptionists at the front desk, they all have the patient's best interest at heart. I am blessed to have found such a dedicated physician.

Has refused many times to give results to bloodwork. Has ordered treatments without patient consent. Does not like being questioned. Average wait time before seeing doctor is 2 hours. Although have waited up to 3 hours several times. Patient files are left laying around for anyone to see. Very messy office and chemo area. Very disorganized. Current nurse grunts at patients.
