Will Leighty, MD
Will Leighty, MD, is a general practitioner trained in family medicine at St Peters Hospital. He is currently accepting new patients and enjoys working with all patients, from infants to the elderly, male and female. In his words, “Health means establishing balance, in every aspect from the bio-chemical to the muscular-skeletal to the mental and emotional. I see myself as a coach to my patients, helping them maintain the balance in their bodies. Ultimately it is my patients who take the pills or do the exercises that will keep themselves healthy, but I provide tools, training, and insight to help them be their best.” He studied at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine, Brenneke School of Massage, and Whitman College. His medical interests include primary and preventive care, mental health, and rural medicine. He and his wife are both from Juneau, Alaska; they have 3 young boys. He enjoys kayaking and gardening.
