Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Grossman "Dr. Allan Grossman has been a health care leader in the Central Pennsylvania area for over twenty years. He believes in addressing the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms. Many foot and ankle conditions may resolve with conservative care and should be attempted before surgery, when possible. He performs functional exams and has treated patients from all over the world. After completing an Orthopedic Trauma Fellowship and a Podiatric Residency at Harvard Medical School affiliated hospitals, he had an enhanced perspective to treat the body as a whole unit. Working with the Computerized Gait Lab, Dr. Grossman has scanned thousands of patients getting them back to work, sports and activities. He is the forerunner on Orthotics and invented a new design that utilizes evidenced based medicine. Dr. Grossman has done clinical trials and research to further the advancement of technology in medicine. He has also been published in several Professional Journals as well as Tennis Magazine. He is a Certified Tennis Teaching Professional who played Division1 tennis and coached at the collegiate level. He is on the National Sports Science committee for the USPTA. He specializes in Sports Medicine and Injuries, Diabetes and Wound Care, and supports both conservative and surgical interventions in both the adult and pediatric patient. He sees Worker's Comp patients and performs chart reviews for Highmark. Dr. Grossman believes that there are two types of doctors. One who is there for his patients and one who feels the patients are there for him. He considers it a privilege to be there for his patients."

What People Say About Dr. Allan Grossman, DPM
I was recommended to Dr. Grossman by many runners and my regular doctor told me he only sends his patients to him. He actually watched me walk, not just sit on a table.
