"Thank you for visiting my website.

Podiatry has undergone immense changes from what it was just a few short years ago. Technologically we're way ahead, but not all changes are good. To me it feels as if a lot of the caring has gone out of the profession, as it has in many professions. But I've made a vow to myself I wasn't going to let that happen to my practice. I became a doctor because I cared and I don't want to lose that.

Here's what it means to you. It means that if you have an emergency, we're always available. Just call 716.824.9835 anytime and I or one of my most trusted people will get back to you post haste. Because an emergency's an emergency.

It means that if you have to work, we have early morning and late hours, in addition to our regular daytime hours. Because I'd want that from my practitioner.

Also, if you refer a friend or loved one to me, I'm going to treat them with the same conviction and energy with which I'm helping you. Perhaps it's a little hokey to say these days, but a friend of yours is a friend of mine."
