Dr. Leaman began practicing family medicine in the small town of Hershey, Pennsylvania a half-century ago. When Pennsylvania State University opened the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center there in 1967, he joined the faculty and established the first department of family medicine in the United States. While professor and chair of that department, he continued his family practice.
A strong proponent for the specialty of family medicine, he has been much
honored by his peers. He was one of the founders
of the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine and
the Association of the Departments of Family
Medicine, and was elected to the presidency of
both. He has served on the editorial boards of
three national publications.
Dr. Leaman is a recognized authority in the field
of anxiety diseases and has made numerous presentations. He moderated an interactive satellite video conference on educating primary care physicians about anxiety disease that was broadcast to 50 cities, reaching 15,000 physicians. He is the author of many articles on anxiety disease and has served on several editorial boards of professional publications on anxiety disease.
In spite of his many honors and his academic standing, he is first and foremost a family doctor. Raising his family and practicing medicine in the same town for fifty years has given him the unique perspective of someone who knows and cares about families. In some cases he is the only doctor the families have known. He knows that any illness impacts the entire family, not just the sufferer.
A widower, he lives in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
