We all spend a lot of time on our feet, day after day. It’s no wonder if your feet are feeling rundown, tired and achy. If your feet hurt, at the office of Gary Feldman, DPM, we are here for you!
Common foot ailments we see range from bunions, corns, calluses and heel spurs to more serious tumors and fractures. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of all foot disorders.
A podiatry consultation is the place to start to determine the cause of any foot concerns. During this initial consultation, a doctor of podiatric medicine will conduct a thorough examination. The doctor may utilize x-ray or lab tests to accurately identify the issue. Depending on your symptoms and test results, your podiatrist will discuss various options. For example, for foot arch problems, the doctor may recommend corrective orthotics; while for a fracture, the doctor will be able to fit you for a boot or cast to temporarily immobilize the foot.
All of our doctors are highly qualified in diagnosing and treating foot-related conditions. Our podiatrists are specially trained in the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg. If you are experiencing a foot problem, your podiatrist will also work closely with your other healthcare providers to ensure your continuous and consistent care, and to understand if your condition is related to any other issues.
Our team is comprised of doctors who are board certified in the care of the lower extremity and have expertise in surgical and as well as non-surgical procedures. To become board certified, podiatrists must have attended an accredited school of podiatric medicine, passed the National Board exams, have postgraduate training, and must have completed a postgraduate residency training program.
At the office of Gary Feldman, DPM, we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
