Dr. Thomas A Leavens has the following 2 specialties
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.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Brought my husband to Dr. Leavens because we knew something was not right - there had been troubling changes. His primary care physician just kind of blew me off, but Dr. Leavens actually listened to us, did a thorough work up on my husband, gave us a diagnosis, and is working on a treatment plan. YES!! And he has a great sense of humor. We even like his nurse.
Dr. Leavens obviously is too busy to fill out FMLA papers with Cigna Insurance. I went for my appointment. I filled out all HIS paperwork. When I asked the receptionist if he would sign my Cigna Insurance papers every 6 months for FMLA, he refused. A day wasted. I have NEVER met a doctor who is dead set against filling out simple papers. Very bad customer service.
Dr. Leavens is a phenomenal practitioner who I would wholeheartedly recommend to close family and friends. He was patient as I explained my concerns in detail, spent time asking questions while testing performing a neuro eval, and he had clearly read my chart in detail before our meeting. He spent the most time talking with me I've ever experienced at a doctors office. His follow up plan was well explained, thoughtful, and thorough and when my results arrived, although benign, he called to explain the "normal variants" to me to be sure I understood and wasn't needlessly alarmed. I am so thrilled to have Dr. Leavens as a doctor - he's a class act and truly a gem. I couldn't rate him more highly.
I have seen several neuroligists during my lifetime because of chronic migraines. Dr. Leavins is very patient with me, willing to try new things , very knowledgable about treatments available and in all just an excellent doctor who seems to really care about his patients. I would recommend him without hestitation to anyone.
