Rose Marie Leslie, MD, is a board-certified physician specializing in family medicine.
What is your practice philosophy? As a family doctor, I believe in proving care for the whole person. I strive to get to know each patient I work with and partner with them to meet their health goals. I hope that during each visit, patients will feel listened to, respected, well-informed and empowered to make health decisions that are best for themselves and their families.
What are you passionate about? And why? I have many passions in medicine. One of my passions is health education and communication. Medicine can be very complex, and I believe that each person deserves to feel well-informed about their health and body. I take time with each patient to make sure they have understanding during their visit, whether it is for pregnancy, mental health or smoking.
If I wasn’t a provider, I would be a: I would be a park ranger or a voice actor.
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? I became a family doctor because I get to care for people at all stages of their lives. I also recognize that every aspect of our health is connected and as a family doctor, I get to help patients navigate all aspects.
Something I have learned from my patients is: I have learned that each person is an expert in their own body and that listening is one of the most important skills a physician can have.
My personal health goal is: My health goal is to spend time outside every single day.
What is the best health advice you’ve received? The best advice I have received is to care for my mental health as much as I care for my physical health.
