On Podiatry . . .
Podiatry is fascinating because it involves so many different aspects of medicine. I see patents with skin problems, toenail problems, injuries, diabetic complications, overuse problems, and mechanical problems. It’s a really gratifying area of medicine, because I’m often able to make an immediate difference in my patients’ lives.
On Being Part of the MOI Team . . .
It’s an honor to be a part of such a talented and dedicated group. It’s part of the MOI culture to share knowledge and expertise across disciplinary boundaries, and the result is the best possible outcome for the patient.
On Caring for Podiatric Patients . . .
It’s amazing how many people restrict their enjoyment of life because of problems with their feet. I see patient’s who live with unnecessary pain from simple foot ailments that can easily be addressed and resolved. I really enjoy helping older people who cannot see or reach their feet become more active, more social, more comfortable, and free from pain. Treating patients is more than just looking at their feet, though. I get a lot of pleasure from the bond that I forge with my patients and seeing them leave my office with a smile on their face.
