Specialties

Dr. Gisela Garcia-Leyva has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

An emotionless, uneducated sadist.

Please be careful allowing any loved one to be seen by this woman. Her inhumane treatment and neglect of patients is dangerous and legitimately destabilizing. She uses her authority to illegally punish patients. Seems to make decisions with insurance money in mind, not a humans wellbeing.

Horrible experience!

Dr Leyva saw my husband's mother while she was an in patient. We found her to be extremely rude, condescending and in a disinterested. My husband and I were shocked at her terrible bedside manner and made it clear that we did not want her to see my mother-in- law ever again!

Dr. Leyva does not seem to care about her patients but more about money. She packed patients into her day program and barely fed food. She was unprofessional.
