Dr. John J Leighton Jr has the following 2 specialties
- Hematology & Oncology
- 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.

Having cancer is trying enough - yet a simple blood cancer marker test is not ordered or not in the file to be ordered as is necessary for following chemotherapy care. I am very pleased with the doctor and the awesome staff - I should not worry about this, yet is often overlooked. I have advanced cancer and the cancer blood test is paramount to my future care. When I addressed this to the doctor, he said "It was human error", yet has happened on several occasions prior.
I am in the medical profession myself.I know many doctors. Dr. Leighton is a wonderful caring man. He told us the truth. He told us our options. He was always there for support and encouragement. I can't tell you what it meant to have Dr. Leighton take care of both us. He showed me as much care, compassion and concern as he did my husband.His office staff showed the same.His nurses were upbeat and always available to talk.I could go on and on. As the saying goes he is simply the best.I will never forget for all he did for us. Thank you, Dr. Leighton
