We welcome you to Boston Foot and Ankle.

I wish to inform all those who visit this site that after 38 years I will no longer practice Podiatry. I have suffered a permanent partial vision loss in my dominant right eye that prevents me from safely performing surgery. Since my practice is a surgical one, there is no other option for me other than to leave practice permanently.

I have been honored to have been entrusted with providing care to tens of thousands of people since September of 1983. I have had the privilege of knowing and becoming good friends with my patients who trusted in me. Leaving the practice of medicine will be a significant gap in my life. I thank all of you for touching my life.

If you need a copy of your office notes created by your visits with me, you will need to send the medical records' request form for Dr. Leavitt, attached to this site, along with a check for $15.00 to Cindy Berube at 19 Timber Lane, Methuen, MA 01844.

If you need a copy of your x-rays, please send the attached form along with the request fee to New England Baptist Hospital, X-Ray Department, 125 Parker Hill Avenue, Boston, MA 02120.

If you need a copy of records generated at the Hospital such as operative notes, anesthesia records, etc., please see the attached form that you will complete and send to the medical records department at the Hospital, Medical Records, New England Baptist Hospital, 125 Parker Hill Avenue, Boston, MA 02120.

Again, I thank you for the privilege over serving and caring for you.
