Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Florek "Our primary focus is the complete care of the foot and ankle.  This ties closely to our philosophy of "Keep on moving!"  What that means is that we are committed to relieving the problems that keep people off their feet.  Obesity is an epidemic of enormous proportions in the United States and the feet and ankles are of primary importance to keeping people active and healthy.  Whatever ailment, whether that be severe ankle pain to a diabetic foot ulcer, that prevents you from being active on your feet we will work together to keep you moving. "
