Care Philosophy

It is very important to me that my patients feel they are receiving the best care. Therefore, all appointments are 30 minutes and I give my personal email to my patients. I want to be there, if they need me.

Research Interests for Patients

I feel incredibly privileged to do what I do and I love it: patient care, research and education. Believe it or not, these three pillars exist more together than they do apart. My research interests are in obesity, pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes. My projects range from identifying communicable/infectious diseases as complications of diabetes to building a workflow and disease state optimization tool for chronic weight management into EPIC (our electronic health record). Everything I do comes back to patient care, so I take the time to educate my patients the same way I do other doctors. I think everyone really likes that!

Research Interest for Referring Providers

Leigh Perreault is an Associate Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology striving to transform our current clinical approaches to weight management and type 2 diabetes. Dr. Perreault graduated from the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, and completed her residency in Internal Medicine and fellowship in Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus where she has remained on faculty for the past 17 years. Dr. Perreault’s overarching research interest lies in understanding the early events that lead to obesity, prediabetes and type 2 diabetes in order to identify novel strategies to restore normal body weight and normoglycemia. To this end, she works as a co-investigator on the Diabetes Prevention Program Outcomes Study (DPPOS), collaborates with other NIH-funded investigators, as well as with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Her curriculum vitae outlines a robust record of publications in high-impact peer-reviewed journals. Translation of research for the education of patients and health care providers is one of Dr. Perreault’s top priorities, and is readily evidenced by her dedicated patient care, authoring of the obesity section of UpToDate and speaking engagements across the globe.
