About

Bio

I have 34 years of private practice experience and 24 years teaching in an academic setting; I currently hold the rank of associate professor. I created both a residency program and a podiatry service at a Level I trauma center, and was chief, the head if you will, of that podiatry service. I am board certified by both the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery and the American Board of Podiatric Medicine. But, enough about credentials. What can I offer you, my patient? My greatest strength is listening, thinking, and arriving at a diagnosis. When you present your problem, it's my job to ask the most appropriate questions to get me to my diagnosis; since we only have fifteen minutes, we both must work quickly. That's where my experience counts. I am currently seeing patients Thursday from 8-10 CST, on the HealthTap website.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

High arches: High arched feet are poor shock absorbers. Orthoses may help with that, making you feel better.

YES: If indeed the prescription is wrong, back pain is possible. Limb length discrepancy?

OF COURSE: Your doctor can assess that. Pain and numbness-maybe a neuroma?
