Motivated by a commitment to excellence, Dr. Leighton’s departure marked the commencement of his venture, Clevehouse Advisors, aimed at providing unparalleled consulting services.

He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Vanderbilt University and went on to attain a Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. His clinical training includes an internship in internal medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, followed by a residency in anesthesiology at Harvard Medical School. Complementing his medical qualifications, Dr. Leighton furthered his education by obtaining a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) from the Jones School of Management at Rice University, while actively contributing as a physician-partner at Greater Houston Anesthesiology—the very practice upon which USAP was founded.
