I am podiatrist with professional interests in foot and ankle surgery, foot and ankle problems, ankle sprains, sports medicine, sports injuries, wound care, flat feet, bunions, hammertoes, ingrown toenails, soft tissue masses, ankle and foot fractures, ankle and heel pain, tendon injuries, warts and skin biopsies. I offer face-to-face virtual visits for a variety of health services and conditions.
I enjoy meeting with patients and helping them get back to normal activities. I try to explain everything in detail and listen to address all of my patient's concerns.
I am also board-certified in foot surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery.
The best part of my patient visit is: helping patients who've had foot and ankle pain for months or even years.
I became a provider because: I wanted a career where I could make a difference in people's lives. As a podiatrist, I am able to help patients treat and resolve their pain and allow them to get back to their regular activities.
I tell my friends and family: not to ignore prolonged foot or ankle pain. It is not normal and should be evaluated and treated.
Patients often say: I really care and listen to what they have to say. I don't want any patient to leave my clinic feeling like their concerns were not addressed.
My favorite health tip is: to avoid wearing cheap shoes. Although good shoes can be costly, often times spending the money on a good pair of supportive shoes can dramatically improve foot and ankle pain.
My practice philosophy is: to listen to every patient's concerns and develop a concise clinical plan to treat my patients' symptoms.
