From the Doctor

” It has always been my lifelong dream to pursue a career in the medical field.  My father and older brother are successful dentists, and they had a direct influence on my choice of becoming a doctor.  I chose podiatry specifically because I have always been fascinated by the miracel of how the foot functions, including the interaction between the circulatory, never and bone systems.  It has been my labor of love to help reduce the pain and suffering that so many people experience from a lifetime of wear and tear on this vital part of our body.”

“In dealing with my patients, it is always my desire to attempt to resolve a painful condtion or deformity without surgical repair, if posible.  I will discuss with each patient alternative methods of treatment, including orthotics, physical therapy, medication, etc.  When it is determined that surgery provides the best solution, I take time to make sure each patient understands what that entails, including any potential risks and complications.  I also take special care during the post-operative phase.”

“You deserve a podiatrist who puts your interest first, who has a passion for her work, and who cares about improving your ability to enjoy life through proper foot and ankle care.”
