The diligent podiatrist added a class valedictorian crown to his mortarboard when graduating with his doctorate from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, then went on to become a chief podiatric surgical resident at Saint Vincent Catholic Medical Centers of Brooklyn. Now working out of his own office, the doctor tends to foot complaints of all stripes, from fractures and warts to sports injuries. Whether he’s easing stress on flat feet or alleviating heel pain, Dr. Hartman always prioritizes communication, ensuring that his patients understand their treatment options and finally grasp why it's rude to eat with your toes.

This season’s flu shot, which contains killed flu viruses, guards against both the seasonal flu and the 2009 H1N1 virus. Some patients may experience mild side effects such as soreness, swelling, or redness, which usually disappear within one to two days. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that people 6 months of age or older receive a flu shot.
At Schlessinger Eye & Face, Dr. David Schlessinger goes far beyond eye drops and the Snellen chart.
