Dr. Kevin Berkowitz and the clinic’s medical staff view health feet first, keeping their clients moving with dermatological services, surgeries, and orthotics. Dr. Berkowitz tries to not only relieve pain but also to identify and treat the source of the problem. This approach informs all of his procedures, including correcting heel spurs to eliminate walking aches and ligament-release surgery to permanently ease the discomfort caused by high heels and fashion stilts. Housed on the grounds of the Mount Sinai Medical Center, Foot & Ankle Specialists perform most treatments in-house or at the hospital they call home.
The podiatrists at Advanced Footcare, led by Dr. Charles Mutschler, Dr. Harold Reinhartz, and Dr. Vann Johnson, treat the foot and ankle ailments of athletes, children, and seniors with a combination of advanced technology and manual healing. When addressing issues such as tendon injuries and muscle pain, the doctors use shockwave therapy to stimulate the body’s self-healing mechanisms. Lasers are used to eliminate foot fungus and erase unwanted spider veins while keeping healthy tissue intact.
In addition to more futuristic treatments, the team also performs surgeries and prescribes medication and devices. Hands-on techniques can ease pain from sports practices or everyday refrigerator-lifting, such as active-release therapy, which addresses the internal scar tissue that binds free-moving muscles.
Dr. Courtney Watkins and Dr. Jean-Jacques Kassis, the podiatrists at Premier Foot and Ankle Clinic, both honed their skills at the Miami Veterans Affairs Medical Center, where they treated diabetic foot issues, an array of ankle injuries, and a slew of other lower-body boo-boos. In their North Miami Beach practice, they tackle everything from regular checkups to complicated foot surgeries and work to prevent injuries with custom-molded orthotics that slip discreetly into shoes or bunny slippers. They also address common dermal conditions, such as plantar warts, ulcers, corns, and calluses.
For the past 14 years, Dr. Craig Stam’s career has centered around his efforts to keep his clients’ feet healthy and pain-free. He is board-certified, and specializes in using laser technology to treat a variety of ailments. With precisely aimed photons, Dr. Stam can target toenail fungus, zap warts, treat inflammation, and ease foot and leg pain. In addition to dealing with common foot problems, such as sports injuries and bunions, he also renders more cosmetic treatments that include removing spider veins and using beauty injections to ameliorate overly sweaty feet.

In addition to treating common foot maladies such as broken bones and ingrown nails, Dr. Gary Wallach also conducts elective procedures. He combats the burning soles often associated with wearing high heels with injections of Sculptra, a solution typically used to ward off facial furrows. Other beauty injections fight in-shoe perspiration, and his Solecare regimen softens heels' tough candy shells. Pedicures at Coral Ridge Podiatry combine both a medical and spa experience, focusing equally on foot health and nail handsomeness during sessions performed with hospital-grade hygiene standards.
