Mission Statement

“A surprising number of people believe that foot pain is natural or something to be expected after a hard day at work. But pain is not natural, and I would like to see my patients sooner instead of later, before their condition worsens. The sooner treatment begins, the sooner you start to feel better. Many patients’ conditions are diagnosed without expensive tests, and we start their therapy the same day they see us. Isn’t that better than putting up with sore feet year after year? That is why Dr. Meredith, Dr. Santiago, Dr. Contento and I are so dedicated to continuing education in our field. We have the specialized training to treat most any foot or ankle problem efficiently and with a minimum of discomfort. We care for people, not just feet! We try to make our special care as convenient as possible so that all can benefit from what we have to offer.”
