Dr. Steven Leveston, Hospitalist, was drawn to the patient-centered approach at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA). “This approach is a great way to get patients involved in their own care and participating in the decision-making process,” says Dr. Leveston.
After completing a Bachelor of Science at the University of Vermont, Dr. Leveston began his medical training at the University of Louisville School of Medicine in Kentucky. He completed his Doctor of Medicine degree at Albany Medical College in New York in 1973.
Dr. Leveston completed his medical internship at Albany Medical Center Hospital in New York, and remained there for a residency in medicine. He then moved to Washington University School of Medicine, Barnes Hospital, where he completed a fellowship in metabolism.
Since he began practicing medicine in 1978, Dr. Leveston has held numerous clinical positions. He has served as a physician in several hospitals in New York, focusing on both general medicine and endocrinology, and also maintained a private medical practice, specializing in endocrinology and metabolism, for several years. He has also held many academic appointments, serving as Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts and Albany Medical College. He has held memberships on hospital and university committees responsible for ensuring quality care.
Dr. Leveston has been involved with basic science and clinical research, focusing on diabetes and growth hormone, and his work is published in several prominent medical journals. He has lectured widely, mainly as part of continuing medical education programs for physicians.
Dr. Leveston is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He holds a medical license through the states of New York, Missouri, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. He is a member of the American Federation for Clinical Research, the Endocrine Society, New York State Medical Society, and the American Diabetes Association (Professional Section).
At CTCA, Dr. Leveston’s goal is to make patients comfortable with their care. As he sees it, the Patient Empowered Care® model at CTCA is a perfect match for his approach. “When you pay attention to what the patient has to say and give them the opportunity to voice their concerns and worries, it makes a difference,” he says. “Patient-centered care is a great way to involve patients in their own care.”
In his spare time, Dr. Leveston enjoys fishing, flying planes and spending time outdoors. “My two granddaughters are the real focus of my attention,” he says.
