Ratings for Leavitt Kenneth M MD
I went to Dr. Leavitt because of all the high ratings I read on the web. After a recent appointment, I have decided to stop seeing him. There are a few reasons. He has consistently made sexist and racist remarks. I've tried to separate his bigotry from my treatments, realizing that it is difficult to find a good doctor. However, yesterday in a conversation, he referred to women as "whores." He also refers to the women who work for him as "girls". This is bad enough, but I felt trapped in his office yesterday as he administered painful treatment and went into a tirade over people of color articulating their identities. He said, "If I told everybody I was white, I'd be considered a racist." Dr. Leavitt is white and in my experience, he is a racist and sexist. I did not engage Dr. Leavitt during his monologues because I sense that he is a time bomb waiting to explode. On a medical level, I have been to Dr. Leavitt for treatment about 10 times, and he's said a few times, "You're going to have to have a surgery." When I've tried to ask for more details, he says, "We'll talk about it when we get closer to the time." I have had terrible pain for over 20 years, and have already experienced a failed surgery. I wanted to trust Dr. Leavitt, but he never took the time to discuss this surgery with me. He is always in a rush because his waiting room is packed, and our conversations about my treatment are left unresolved. Some may consider him a good doctor, but his prejudices should keep him out of the public sphere.
