Our experienced Westchester foot doctors first diagnose the underlying cause of your pain. Through in-depth counseling, we strive to prevent recurrence and future complications. Patient experience is important to us. You will never feel rushed by our friendly, knowledgeable staff.

We treat our patients to the latest technology and minimally invasive procedures used to treat foot and ankle injuries. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), shockwave therapy, laser treatment, cryosurgery, and ultrasonic debridement are just a few of the progressive treatment options at our disposal.

When necessary, our board-certified podiatric surgeons schedule surgeries at Beth Israel Medical Center, Mount Sinai Medical Center or White Plains Hospital. Our NYC podiatrists have performed over 15,000 surgeries over the past several decades, so you are in good hands with us.

Our state-of-the-art gait analysis center is a unique feature we have that other Westchester podiatrists do not offer. We study how you stand, walk, and run to identify areas of compromise that contribute to the development of chronic pain and overuse injury.

Insurance for Westchester Podiatry services

Some patients avoid seeking specialist care because they worry about the cost. We accept most major insurance plans from Aetna and Blue Cross Blue Shield to Horizon and Elder Plan. We also accept Medicare. Here is a list of insurances we take, but please contact us with questions about coverage. Whenever possible, we fight for your right to coverage by providing insurance companies with evidence of medical necessity for surgeries and treatments. We let you know upfront if any recommended procedures are not covered by insurance and discuss alternate payment arrangements with you from CareCredit Loans to Flexible Savings Accounts.
