Office Philosophy

Many varied causes exist for foot and leg pain. The practice has over 25 years experience in recognizing and treating foot and leg ailments. We will recommend treatment options that have been proven most successful.

Many conditions can be relieved without surgery, and conservative alternatives are reviewed in detail. When the patient understands what the problem is, what aggravates it, and the treatments available, then he/she can make an informed decision about the treatment options

When surgical correction is the best choice, thorough review of medical status, and coordination with the family doctor or internist ensures a complete medical picture.

We routinely forward copies of our office notes to primary care doctors and other specialists being seen to maintain a comprehensive medical record. Of course confidentiality is maintained.
