Dr. Caplis' Care Philosophy
Patients should receive the best care for their feet and ankles. This involves carefully diagnosing the entire condition, especially the root of the problem. Once diagnosed, a plan that utilizes conservative treatments should be used first, followed by more aggressive treatment methods once conservative methods fail. There will be a follow up with the patient to ensure a full recovery is made.
