Dr. Leyton gave complete attention and whatever amount of time was needed to address my needs each time I saw him. I didn't feel like I was a # being shuffled through quickly for the purpose of making a profit. He was extremely personable and concerned about obtaining a complete history in order to use a comprehensive approach to my situation. The only reason my wait time was so extensive for my last appointment was that something had come up w/ another patient and he was needed elsewhere.....I feel certain that if I had been that patient in immediate acute need, he would have spent the same amount of time with me. The wait time for my other appt's varied b/w 15 and 40 minutes.

He only gives the proper medicine to certain people that he feels are special. The others, he doesn't give a care about their pain and will give medicine that barely works. He gave me an injection in one of my arthritic knees only for it to work 3 days instead of 3 months causing bone spurs making my knee worse. I have extreme arthritis in my back and knees and not one time did he refer me to an orthopaedic surgeon with his money hungery self. Then he had the audacity to discontinue his services from me without notice all because I went to the emergency room after a fall and they gave me a different kind of pain medicine. If he was taking care of his business properly with me instead of playing favourites and BSing, more than likely I wouldn't have lost my balance and fell in the first place. I guess by his logic I was supposed to just grab some asprin and call him in the morning. Yeah ok right!

Please listen! I have had chronic pain for over ten years . I went to Dr Layton for help and instead he gave me 21 weeks of the run around . I was so stressed out the pain had gotten even worse.I understand the desperation of getting help. I read the reviews before I went and I wish I had listened. We all want our pain free lives back I spend my days on the couch praying for help. You all know this feeling it makes me so sad to know others are in this same situation. Don't see this Dr. Your hope for pain relief will just break your heart again.
