Dr. Betschart's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Betschart "I grew up in Long Island, NY. I knew from an early age that I wanted to be involved in health care. An experience as a patient while in high school introduced me to the profession of podiatry. The variety of conditions treated and the ability to make immediate impacts on a patient's concerns intrigued me. I made the decision to pursue this career while in college. It has proven to be a challenging and rewarding experience over the last 22 years. I am looking forward to serving patients for many more years."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Betschart "I believe that a doctor and patient become a team for treating an individual's feet. I will spend time listening to understand your concerns and responding with the best treatment options for you. With the help of our professional staff, we also follow up to make sure that generally pain is relieved, problems are resolved and your health improves. I believe in approaching most conditions conservatively before moving to more invasive therapies. Restoration of optimal function is the ultimate goal"
