Dr. Philip H. Kresch understands the frustration that comes with having toenail fungus. Working in the podiatry field for more than 30 years, he's seen patients battle with ineffective topical solutions and oral medications that can cause undesirable side effects, such as uncontrollable quickstepping. The pursuit of an effective, no-fuss treatment led him to affix his office with the latest technology for battling toenail fungus—the Q-Clear laser system. Unlike with previous laser procedures, the system's calibrated energy wavelengths can destroy fungal growths without the use of medications in as little as one to three treatments.
At Family Footcare, four board certified foot specialists hold more than 80 years of clinical experience. Combined, they've treated all manner of foot and ankle ailments, from toenail fungus and ankle sprains to bunions and diabetic education. The team demonstrates its dedication to getting patients back on their feet with free consultations, during which patients can ask questions concerning ingrown toenails or the right way to punt a watermelon.
Few nail salons possess the medical credentials of the team at The Heeling Touch Spa. The spa is overseen by Drs. Louis Geller and Michael Krupic, which means it's especially cautious when it comes to sanitation and health. In fact, they explicitly designed their business to cater to clients with medical difficulties that might affect their feet. That's why, in addition to deluxe mani-pedis and foot massages, techs also perform services like the Diabetic Dream, a foot-and-leg treatment that's meant to protect the limbs of diabetics.

Dr. Judge regularly publishes articles regarding podiatry, with 20 already in circulation, and she serves as a peer reviewer for the Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery and as a columnist for Healthy Living News, a northwest Ohio circular.
