Ratings for Dr. Mark Leith
I am grateful that I was referred to Dr. Leith. I had to wait awhile for a permanent appointment but it was worth it. Dr. Leith is compassionate, knowledgeable, very easy to relate to. He was instrumental in motivating me to address my weight and food issues and supportive when I joined a weight loss group. Through his help and guidance, my self-confidence has increased and I feel I have made positive changes in my life. I highly recommend this doctor.
I cannot say enough about Dr. Leith. I have been a patient for many years, and he has been very helpful to me. I was new in Canada and had seen a couple of doctors before, but did not feel a connection until I met Dr. Leith, he gave me appointments here and there until there was an opening for me. He really helped me so much! After a couple of years of not seeing him regularly, I was in dire need of his help and he was able to accommodate me again. I am incredibly grateful for that! I have recommended him to other family members, who also received invaluable help. He really is the best!
I have been a long-time patient of Dr. Leith and have found him to be enormously helpful throughout some very difficult periods in my life. He is personable, approachable and extremely knowlegable in his field of psychiatry. As an OHIP-covered doctor he does have strict cancellation rules, but I also realize that as my appointments are invaluable to me, I’m fortunate to have found a therapist covered by OHIP, which has enabled me to see him over an extended period of time.
Dr Leith has been providing us as a couple with therapy on and off for about 30 years. He has helped us to address marital issues, aging parental concerns and provided guidance during our children's challenging teenage years. Dr Leith has been instrumental in supporting us through the maze of life's trials. I don't know what we would have done without him!
Dr Leith recognizes the importance of creating a trusting relationship in order to do deep work with his patients. He cares and makes space for reflection and introspection. The timing of his thought provoking questions and identification of issues is perfect.
I worked with Dr. Leith over a few years and found him to be very helpful. I would have to say that he is a very caring and compassionate doctor. In fact, even though I'm no longer a patient I sometimes feel the need to talk to him and when I call him he always makes time for me. I have never had an issue with appointments and scheduling and appreciate that he has no office staff so relies on a cooperative relationship with his patients.
Dr. Leith is a psychiatrist exceptionale. He brings in stories, either movies, plays or personal that are relevant, and which gave me the footing to consider my own thought process. Over the years his empathetic, knowledgeable and astute approach has given me a new confidence in myself and an opportunity to more perceptive in the understanding of people around me. He is always on time, which I definitively appreciate, and his missed appointment policy is the same as other professionals. Thanks Dr. Leith; my life is so much more because of you.
If ever in need of help understanding demons, dealing with dysfunctional behaviour, and gaining emotional support to improve both your feeling about yourself and those around you, then Dr. Mark Leith is the shrinkoid for you ! As a psychiatrist, Mark takes you on a journey that helps you better understand yourself, which inevitably helps you feel better about others and life in general. He takes considerable time listening and gaining your trust, then guides you to insights you may have kept hidden or avoided considering in the past. He is extremely empathetic, caring, and intelligent. I find his administration policy for matters such as advanced warning for missing appointments both fair and normal practice for other professionals. If you embark on therapy, than expect to be work hard and be dedicated to the process. I find his anecdotes and relational stories both relevant and helpful to understanding myself. Thanks Dr. Leith! Highly recommended if you can get a time slot with him.
I saw Dr Leith for a number of years to help me with anxiety, depression and anger issues. I found him to be very intelligent, personable, knowledgeable, helpful and caring. His cancellation policy is perfectly reasonable and no different from any other specialist I have visited. I found him to be a very good listener, showing insight and compassion. I cannot thank him enough for the help he gave me through a difficult time in my life. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking help for anxiety or depression.
Dr. Leith is a fantastic doctor. He has helped me in many ways. I can reach him easily, he is attentive, he is full of knowledge, he is a great logical thinker and he has a fabulous sense of humour. I highly recommend him. If he has an opening take it!
