Ankle sprains. Athlete's foot. Diabetic foot care. Led by Dr. Audrey Abatemarco, a podiatrist with more than two decades of experience, the team at Mt Kisco Podiatry Associates addresses these and a host of other foot-related maladies. In treating patients, the team deploys sophisticated techniques, such as custom-made shoe inserts to alleviate pain and the PinPointe FootLaser to target toenail fungus.
Led by Dr. Hyun Joon Lee and Dr. Mariam Rahav, the staff of Scarsdale Integrative Family Medicine tend to patients in five areas: primary care, functional medicine, wellness services, nutritional services, and cosmetic services. The team, rounded out by a nutritionist, a licensed massage therapist, and a variety of fitness professionals, including a weight-lifting coach and personal trainer, works together to provide comprehensive care for patients, and encourages all visitors to speak openly with those providing them care.
Not even x-rays see all. Dr. Henry Slomowitz recognized this more than a decade ago, becoming an early adopter of diagnostic ultrasound, which can identify problems that a foot might normally hide from an x-ray. Diagnostic ultrasound is only the tip of the technological iceberg—aided by his staff of four, Dr. Slomowitz performs laser nail-fungus treatments and radio-frequency heel pain relief, among other advanced services.
Over the last 20 years, the medical experts at New Jersey Foot and Ankle Centers have seen 20,000 peoples' feet. Having worked with tens of thousands of patients, the staff has sharpened their expertise in all things related to feet, from plantar fasciitis and sprained ankles to ingrown toenails and bunions. One of their specialties is their use of lasers to help destroy unwanted fungus residing on nail beds. With fewer side effects than other treatments such as oral medication, topical creams, and magic potions, laser toenail-fungus treatments require zero downtime.
In the converted house that hosts his office, Dr. Jonathan H. Margolin, DPM, AACFAS, addresses an expansive assortment of orthopedic, skin, and nail issues. Before he opened shop in 2008, Dr. Margolin spread his energies among various practices, hospitals, and teaching institutions. Through these experiences, he developed and sharpened specialties in diabetic and special-needs care, sports injuries, orthotics, and disorders of the nail and skin. Today, at Teaneck Podiatry, he treats adults and children with the same enthusiasm and care, whether he's fitting a foot for custom orthotics or diagramming the wavelengths of light-up sneakers.
Podiatrist Jay Mermelstein, D.P.M., who began caring for feet and ankles in 1989, diagnoses and treats pedal problems and rehabilitates patients under one roof. Working alongside an experienced staff, he addresses issues ranging from sprains to diabetes-related complications to Achilles tendonitis and ingrown toenails. Advanced diagnostic tools such as x-rays and ultrasounds work in tandem with treatments such as laser therapy, radio wave surgery, and whirlpool therapy. Dr. Mermelstein empowers patients to make informed decisions about their healthcare with extensive educational resources that demystify sports injuries, nail problems, and heel vulnerability in swift-footed Greeks. Same-day appointments are available.
