Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schlam "As a podiatrist, I think of the patient and doctor as a team, working together to formulate a treatment plan. While I enjoy treating all foot and ankle conditions, my specific interests focus on the diagnosis and treatment of difficult cases, foot surgery, trauma, and the special foot concerns of diabetic patients."

He told me I needed casts on both my son's feet, which the next doctor I went to said I didn't and he healed fine without them. He told me I needed to buy $400+ orthotics, that my insurance did not cover them. The next doctor I went to gave them to me free (since the insurance did cover them).

Dr Schlam is the best. I went to him for an injury to my sons toenail and he had my son back in action within a few days. Also went to Dr Schlam for my daughter's heel pain. He is always attentive and informative and an all around pleasant doctor.
