In Manhattan, Experience Matters

Our practice was founded by board-certified podiatric surgeon Dr. Josef J. Geldwert DPM. You may have seen him working at the New York Marathon, the NYC Triathlon or the Hamptons Marathon where he served as one of the official event podiatrists.

Geldwert was interviewed for Westchester Magazine and Podiatry Management Online among other publications. Our practice was featured in a Westchester Magazine segment about “the top doctors of Westchester.” NY Mag listed his work among the “Top Foot Perfecting Services.”

Dr. Geldwert has worked with professional athletes as the team podiatrist for the NY Lizards lacrosse team and was the consulting podiatrist for the NY Liberty women’s basketball team and NY Magic women’s soccer team. With more than three decades of professional experience, you can be sure you’re getting top-level care from Dr. Geldwert and his staff.

We Accept Most Insurance

To minimize out-of-pocket expenses, our Manhattan podiatrists accept most major insurance carriers, including:

  • Aetna
  • Anthem
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Cigna
  • Elder Plan
  • Empire Plan
  • Guardian
  • HIP
  • Horizon

We work closely with our patients to be sure they can get the care they need, without breaking the bank. Most of our treatments are covered by insurance, but some services (like bunion repair) are considered cosmetic and a few of our newer therapies are not yet covered by insurance. If you have any questions about insurance coverage and payment plans, do not hesitate to ask our friendly front office staff.
