You may know that a podiatrist is a foot doctor, but you may also be wondering exactly what does a podiatrist do? They are responsible for all things feet. They not only give advice on how to maintain healthy feet, they also treat conditions such as bunions, foot fungus, plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, and many more. Some can even perform surgery. Many podiatrists also specialize in diabetic or pediatric foot care. They can care for your chronic foot conditions or simply consult with you if you have questions regarding the health of your feet.If you have foot pain, or you would like to see firsthand how a podiatrist can help you, call Dr. Mitchell Wachtel at 888-616-2512.
