Better Foot Health: Chronic Pain and Athletic Injury Treatment Near Queens

Most people automatically assume they need emergency room care for a broken ankle, a diabetic foot ulcer, or foot sprain, but a trip to New York Hospital Queens isn’t cheap. Not to mention, it can be unpleasant to sit waiting endlessly in the ER. Instead, you can enjoy a comfortable setting and friendly service at The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine in Midtown Manhattan, located near Central Park and just a stone’s throw from Queens.

One of our resident NYC podiatrists, Dr. Ryan Minara, completed a rigorous Podiatric Medicine and Surgery residency at New York Hospital Queens, where he was Chief Resident. Our other doctors, founder Dr. Josef J. Geldwert and senior associate Dr. Katherine Lai, have doctorates in podiatric medicine and practicing privileges at Beth Israel, Mount Sinai, White Plains Hospital, and the Montefiore Medical Center.
