It's not surprising that tots become so attached to this modern learn-and-play facility.

A group of more than 50 podiatrists across the world have one thing in common, besides podiatry: they received training from Dr. Dean Spellman, a 25-year veteran who tends to the foot-oriented needs of clients of all ages. In addition to holding positions at several hospitals and surgical centers, Dr. Spellman serves as one of two podiatrists at Family Foot Care—a well-established podiatric center with locations throughout the New York City area. And when he’s not helping patients regain the pep in their step, Spellman takes the time to work with youth soccer teams to ensure all participants can run, kick, and victoriously prance with ease.
