What Does a Podiatrist Treat?

Many people are not aware of all the types of services a foot specialist, or podiatrist, can provide.  It’s not unusual for people to just live with some types of foot pain and problems because they’re not aware that a podiatrist can provide relief.  I’ve had friends, acquaintances, patients and even doctors and other medical professionals say to me, “I had no idea that you provided that service!”


Fact:  Over 75% of Americans experience foot health problems in their lives but only 12% who have foot ailments have visited a podiatrist.


Foot and ankle problems that I treat include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Skin and Nail Conditions: corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, infections,
         fungus, skin growths, warts
  • Bone Related Conditions: bunions, hammertoes, bone spurs, painful joints or arthritis, foot and ankle fractures, foot and ankle sprains
  • Structural Conditions: flat or high arched feet, heel pain, plantar fasciitis, foot and ankle injuries, Morton's neuroma
  • Foot Orthotics: the latest orthotic technology for relief for painful feet
  • Diabetic or Circulatory Problems: ulcerations, infections and neuropathy
  • Occupational Foot Problems

Basically, any pain or injury that you have in the foot or ankle, I am qualified to treat it. This means that you do not need to seek medical care from an orthopedic doctor for any foot or ankle issue.

Also, please do not hesitate to call the office if you have an injury that that might require you to visit an emergency room or urgent care center. I might be able to accommodate you or recommend a plan of treatment that can help you avoid the cost
of the emergency room.

Thank you for allowing me to service all of you and your families foot and ankle care needs and I hope I can provide you with any additional needs in the future.
