In addition to her position with Summit Medical Group, Kathleen H. Leistikow, MD, is Attending Physician at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, New Jersey.

Dr. Leistikow is focused on preventive measures such as healthy dietary, exercise, and lifestyle habits to help avoid disease. She says, "I empower my patients with education about ways they can help stay healthy.
