Practice Philosophy    

Nobody likes to be treated like cattle or like a number. We don't either. Medical offices can often feel like a stressful place. Your feet hurt, and you just want them to get better so you can go on with your life. I understand that. I strive to create an environment that is friendly, attentive, and where the individual patient matters. From the office layout to the way we train our employees to interact with patients, we go to great effort to ensure your confidence and comfort.

I enjoy taking the time to do the "detective work" often needed to get to the root of your foot problem. Not every problem requires a surgical solution. Don't get me wrong, surgical intervention is sometimes the best option, but not for everyone. I try to give all of the useful options for your particular foot problem. Let us see if we can help you!
