Dr. Leavitt is a native of Arizona. He attended K-12 in the Gilbert public school system and later went on to ASU where he received a bachelor's degree in Spanish literature and linguistics. He is fluent in Spanish and has gone on several medical missions trips to Mexico where he has been able to treat underserved populations. He attended Midwestern University in Glendale, AZ for his medical school training. Upon completion of his medical degree he was accepted into a general surgery residency program at Beaumont Health in Detroit, Michigan through Michigan State University.
