Laboring Day

Labor Day is winding down, which means the summer has had its last gasps. That’s bad news for all you kids out there, and great news for your parents! Since Labor Day is a celebration of workers everywhere, we ironically take the day off from work. In any case, to paraphrase the poet of duel […]

The Feet Smell…

And the nose runs. Forgive me, the borscht belt dies hard in my culture. Now that we are well into the dog days of summer and in light of the climate change that has enveloped us all in a haze of oppressive hot air and calamitous storms- and that’s just from the politicos- it’s time […]

That’s Some Nerve

Sensitive little things, those nerves are. Always firing off signals, transmitting messages, and giving orders. For the most part, they are very efficient lines of transmission, communicating signals between our brains and just about every other part of the body, both detectable and undetectable, save for the toenails, which makes my job just a bit […]

Independence Day

Well that day is upon us again, or it passed a few weeks ago, depending on when you’re reading this. It’s time to celebrate a major portion of the British Empire voting to leave a large government and downsize to a smaller leaner independent island. No I’m not talking Brexit here, my dear NYC podiatry […]

NY-euroma in my NY-erve Part 2

When I last left you, my poor dear NYC podiatry patients, we were discussing the vicissitudes of pain in the ball of the foot. Since that time the foot still hurts, we are still walking, and it’s just a bit hotter. Time to be a bit proactive and talk about solutions to the problem. After […]

NY-euroma in my NY-erve

We are in the throes of Spring here in NYC, on the cusp of Memorial Day and the beginning of summer. The trees are budding, birds are chirping and the kids are getting super hyper and ready to be liberated from the shackles of the bondage we call school for another summer of mayhem and […]

Ortho-docs

For those of you out there in the blogosphere who are reading this, and you know who you are, you may at some point in the recent or distant past have visited your friendly local NYC podiatrist, or maybe even a not so friendly distant podiatrist. And whatever complaint with which you were encumbered upon […]

A Walking City

No, not a city that actually gets up and walks, that would be Inception like surreal. I mean a city in which the people walk. That’s our fair town, NYC, and I would like to consider myself your erstwhile tour guide, as it were. Not that there’s much choice here, it’s a place of forced […]

Just To Be Clear

It’s a light week here in NYC, and time for some light blog-fare. If you have been here, you have slogged through a snowstorm that wasn’t all it was forecasted up to be, and now we are left with a slushy icy mess and one more snow day checked off the school calendar. Days off […]

Vaccine Nation

Way back when life was grand and everything simple and nice – a few months ago – we discussed in the annals of this most sacred and hallowed blog a few medical miracles that we may take for granted, namely anesthesia and diagnostic radiology. I avoided naming the third in order to keep this holy […]
