Personal Notes:

Leah B. Kaltman, MD, believes that good health depends on preventive measures, good nutrition, mental health, and fitness. She notes, "Wellness requires physical and mental well-being. For this reason, I attend to both aspects of a patient's health in my practice. I also recommend ways that my patients can improve their nutrition, reduce stress, and increase their fitness."

An unfavorable experience as a surgical patient during her teen years inspired Dr. Kaltman to practice medicine. She says, "I vowed that if I became a doctor, I would have a positive relationship with and avail myself to my patients. My desire to improve patient/physician interactions and my interest in health and fitness made me a perfect fit for the field of medicine."

A gifted teacher, Dr. Kaltman has been a volunteer preceptor for the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-New Jersey Medical School and a mentor for Healthy Communities/Healthy Youth, a program that assists high school students in choosing careers. She is a former member of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Consultant medical staff. Dr. Kaltman is a recipient of the Arnold P. Gold Foundation Gold DOC Humanism in Medicine Award for her humanistic approach to the practice of medicine.
