Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kussel "As an experienced podiatrist, I believe that foot pain is not normal and should not be accepted as just a part of life. I am a trained foot and ankle surgeon, yet experienced in the best non-surgical care as well. I keep in mind the comfort of my patients and the demands of their lifestyles and jobs. I believe that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions regarding their health and well-being. Communication is very important in the total care of the patient. Understanding about"
