"Healthy feet are the foundation for whole body health and wellness. Prevention and early treatment of foot problems will help you enjoy an active life.
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 board certified in foot and ankle surgery, 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 you and your lifestyle, occupational demands on your feet, exercise and nutrition are important for us to help you get better.
Nothing makes me happier than when a patient is relieved of their pain. Foot problems really can affect your daily activities. We all want to be able to be active, to work and play. When your feet hurt, it changes your plans, your mood. I know the value of healthy feet and the problems that can occur in occupations that require a lot of standing and walking. I have seen the long term effects of being on your feet a great deal, in extremes of temperature and on uneven or concrete ground. My goal is to help you avoid having to take time off from work or to have to work in pain. I am trained in the best treatments available while always remembering that time proven treatments are also valuable."- Dr. Debra Young
