A Season Of Thanks

Well it’s been some time since we’ve connected, and in that time the world is still round as far as I can tell, most of my dear NYC podiatry patients are still bipedal locomotive machines, and 2020 is not even around the corner.  But as we are just a few weeks post-Thanksgiving and I’m still enjoying leftovers, and we have entered the season of miracles (cue the angels, or as I like to say cure the Angels), let us pray - or something. 

It’s been an interesting year so far, and it’s just getting started.  And as we come to a close, here are a few things I’m thankful for.  Let’s see there’s waking up this morning.  Family.  Running. Music (@Phish New Year’s Run anyone?). And you my dear patients.  I’m thankful to be a part of your lives, from the occasional ingrown toenail, heel pain, bunion surgery, to keeping you walking, running and mostly pain free. 

Despite it all, we are in pretty good times in this time and place, and we need only turn on the TV (remember that?) or open the newspaper (totally dating myself) or even open a smartphone to see what happens on a daily basis locally and globally. Our health system still has its strong points such as the doctors who wake up every day with the mission of helping out, and thankfully there are still plenty of others in our society who get up for the purpose of helping out their fellows.  I’m thankful to live in society, and hope tomorrow is a bit better than today.

So my dear NYC podiatry patients, not too much to tell you about feet this week, perhaps will save that for the next thrilling and fun filled blog.  Meanwhile if you’re reading this- and my condolences to those who are still in it at this point on the page- be glad that you are and can.  And be thankful it’s over, until next time…

See you in the office.

When Should I Get Bunion Surgery?

Here’s a question I get pretty often: why feet?  And I answer, because I love feet. And usually I’ll add a comment about how it’s a good thing I’m not a gastroenterologist or a urologist or something along those lines.

Heal the Heel

Ok kids time for a little word association. Tell me the first thing you think of when I say - plantar fasciitis. If it starts with an F no need to articulate the sentiment, but you might want to read on.

And I Thank You

Shocking, yet not surprising, the year is coming to a close and it’s already time to shop bargains on turkey and squash.

Why You Should Call Your Podiatrist (even after hours)

It’s relatively late at night in the city as I write this, and many of my dear Manhattan podiatry patients may be wondering what it is I’m doing at this late hour, other than filling the annals of this most holy and sacred blog with more consecrated verbia

Heal Thyself

Summer’s over now kids, although if you’re like me summer is just winter with heat. Still, I do get a little pit in my stomach as Labor Day looms large on the calendar and the waning days of summer transform into the crisp breezes of autumn, and other line
