Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the study, diagnosis and treatment of foot, ankle and lower leg.
Supporting the entire weight of the human body, your feet are routinely subjected to constant physical punishment, but they are often never considered
an integral part of the overall health picture. Proper foot care is just as
essential to your total well-being
as a healthy diet and regular exercise.
The Podiatrist is fully trained in
medicine and surgery to diagnose and treat your conditions. Podiatrists are uniquely qualified
among medical professionals with exceptional expertise and education.
Utilizing the latest technology and
standards, Dr. Altman can counsel you on
which podiatric treatments may be necessary,
and which would be most appropriate for your
particular problem. Treatments may include
medications and physical therapy.
Prescription corrective devices individually
molded to the foot and worn inside the shoe
can be made.
If you have been referred to a Podiatrist, or have been neglecting your food care, take time to
