Helmed by three experienced podiatrists, Dr. Joseph Burke, Dr. Erica Papathomas, and Dr. Kelvin Barry, Cherrywood Foot Care Group’s exceptional staff has scored Long Island Press's Best of Long Island distinction four years running. Cherrywood Foot Care uses diagnostic ultrasound equipment, digital radiography, advanced fungus-removal lasers, and an onsite surgical facility to treat foot-related problems ranging from simple athlete’s foot, heel spurs, and ankle sprains to complex injuries acquired on the pro-hopscotch circuit.
At offices in Great Neck and Floral Park, Dr. Lauren Schwartz leads a podiatric team that’s been keeping feet and ankles healthy for about 20 years.The office addresses general podiatry care for bunions, fractures, heel pain, neuromas, orthotics and diabetic foot care; patients can also opt for a bit of pampering: specially designed sterile pedicures keep toes relaxed and looking their best, and sterile manicures do the same for fingers. The foot facial gets skin ready for open-toed shoes and glass slippers.
Educated at the New York College Of Podiatric Medicine, Dr. Mary Carlson cares for the unique concerns related to the feet and ankles, seeing patients of all ages from children to elderly adults. She treats them all with laser therapy, radiofrequency therapy, and physical therapy, partnering a caring bedside manner with the field’s latest technology.
Dr. Gary B Feldman corrects an array of podiatry ailments with everything from custom orthotics and shoe inserts to hypnosis for pain management. He obliterates foot fungus with the FDA-approved PinPointe FootLaser system and eradicates painful and bothersome bunions, hammertoes, corns, and calluses. Although he has two offices—one in Flushing and another in Valley Stream—the doctor also makes house calls for particularly serious problems, such as that time you got your foot stuck in the cookie jar.
At Sunrise Family Footcare, Dr. Marc Schumann works to treat and prevent podiatric ailments that range from sports injuries to flat feet. Surgery, orthotic inserts sculpted to support arches, and pain-relieving cortisone injections are a few treatment options available at the practice. Schumann and his team of specialists also wield lasers, correcting ingrown toenails or fungal growth.
Led by their founder, Dr. Greg Khaimov, the doctors at Foot and Ankle Center of Fort Lee keep patrons' feet fit for locomotion. Services sweep the spectrum of foot-related maladies, including hammertoes, bunions, and toes that loudly cry "wee wee wee" all the way home. Advanced devices also help treat tricky chromic problems: extracorporeal shock wave therapy alleviates heel pain and high-powered lasers kill stubborn toe fungus.
