The mission of our office and staff is to offer patients the most caring, most comprehensive, and most effective foot and ankle-related care in the region. The practice is based in New England Baptist Hospital where Dr. Leavitt has full service treatment facilities accessible to patients 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Being at the Hospital, Dr. Leavitt and our patients have immediate access to the full services of a hospital laboratory and operating rooms and, most importantly, can obtain high quality x-rays and MRI's in timely fashion to complete diagnosis and move on to the solution without lengthy delays.
Our office in Bourne, is available by appointment on designated days.

CANCELLATION AND RESCHEDULING POLICY
Unfortunately, we have seen a trend recently of a 10% "no-show" rate of patients who do not cancel their appointments and do not show on the day of the appointment. This means that on an average week as many as 15 patients do not call ahead to cancel and then do not show for their appointment.
This situation results in a serious impact on the healthcare of those patients who want an appointment with the doctor but who are unable to get an appointment due to a very full schedule.
The doctors work six full days per week as they endeavor to do everything possible to be available to help heal those with foot problems. They see urgent and emergent patients on the day of their need, including Sundays. They are committed to you.
Out of respect for those patients who need to see the doctors, we have developed a no-show policy that we kindly request your adherence to.
There are always exceptions, but in general we kindly request that you call and re-schedule an appointment no less than 48 hours ahead. We will make every effort to re-schedule you in a timely manner. If you do not call and do not show for your appointment, you could be charged a $50.00 missed-appointment fee.
We trust that you will understand this policy and help us to continue to provide timely health care for all who need it.
