Dr. Matt Leavitt

CEO and founder

Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery

He lives to find innovative solutions that he can bring to the masses to help solve problems in their lives. This mindset makes him a valuable asset for his clients at Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, where Leavitt manages the country’s largest dermatology practice consisting of more than 70 clinics.

Despite this significant responsibility, Leavitt still sees his own patients and provides the same high level of care he expects of all his practitioners. The business was built with patient care and provider excellence as the primary pillars and Leavitt wants every person in the organization to understand the key role they play in helping the company to meet those standards and be the best it can be.

As CEO and founder, Leavitt is transparent in the way he runs the company, which helps him to attract top talent. He thrives in a collaborative culture where everyone is trying to get better. Leavitt is excited to share ideas with colleagues in hopes of finding a better way to help patients.

This culture has been even more crucial for the business in light of the ongoing sluggishness of the economy. Between that and the recent political climate of change in the health care industry, fear has been prevalent among doctors who wonder what their future will look like.

But Leavitt sees the current environment as an opportunity to grow his business in order to increase the company’s influence on the industry. Seeing opportunity in the face of challenge has always been one of Leavitt’s greatest entrepreneurial qualities.

On a personal level, Leavitt rewards employees who experience individual success with both accolades and financial rewards such as stock options. His drive and passion is contagious throughout the organization, and he challenges everyone to be the best caregiver, employee and person they can be.
