Why We Should Be Thankful for Our Feet

Can you believe Thanksgiving passed already?  It seems like the last Thanksgiving was only one year ago!  Don’t know about you, but for me time sure does fly when I’m saving lives, one toe at a time.  Anyway, it’s a great time to reflect on the last year, and think about what we are thankful for, after digesting and shopping until our feet drop at the meshugenah Black Friday sales.  I know what I’m thankful for, along with the obvious such as health, family, and of course my dear patients. I’m thankful for my feet, and this would seem to be a good time to inspire others to be thankful for theirs as well, warts and all. Check out these foot facts:

Well kids, there you have it.  Just something else to be thankful for in this season. Think about all that next time you open the newspaper or favorite webpage to read the bad news du jour.  Just take a few steps and smile.  And if you’re taking a few steps and wincing, I’m just a phone call or click away.

See you in the office.

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
