Thankfulness

Another year has almost passed us by. Hard to believe that it’s been a year since we had a belly full of turkey – or a reasonable non-animal facsimile – and a mailbox full of boxes with smiley faces on them. Yes, my dear NYC podiatry patients, time to come down and back from the […]

Democrazy!

So much to write about here in NYC, and so little time before the country completely collapses, depending on your world view. Of course we had the NYC Marathon this week, always a fun topic full of highs, lows, blisters, stress fractures, nail trauma and a lot of carb loading. However I’m going to leave […]

Get Out!

It’s getting cold here in NYC, so cold I had a fleeting thought that Al Gore might be wrong about this whole climate change business, which makes me doubt other so called scientific facts such as time travel, cold fusion, and that gravity nonsense. But let’s not get caught up in myths. Let’s instead talk […]

X-ray Vision

Now that the Nobel Prizes have been announced, and a real musician finally got his due – who needs a Grammy anyway – it’s a good time to continue our discussion of medical miracles with something that happens every day in your NYC podiatry office: the roentgenogram, or as we all know it today, the […]

A Wee Bit of Alcohol?

Flu season is upon us, I think. Seems like it’s about now that the flu injection is forced upon us by the paternalistic and domineering medical community in violation of our good American civil liberties. Viva la virus! Of course that’s strictly off the record, because this NYC podiatrist isn’t going to be responsible for […]

Bubbles Anyone?

This week, it’s on. Just when you thought this blog couldn’t possibly get any more esoteric or banal, I out-nerd even myself. For this week, dear NYC podiatry patients, we are going to cover the frothy, bubbly topic of – wait for it – hydrogen peroxide. I’ll wait while you put that new iPhone down. […]

Labor Day in NYC

It’s that time of year once again. Yes kids, it’s time for you to go back to school so your parents’ vacations can start. Ha. We know how that goes.   Even for adults and parents alike, Labor Day is always a bit of a drag, being the end of summer and all. So let’s be […]

The Dessert of Champions

Hey there sports fans and NYC podiatry patients, unless you’ve been living in a cave in Abbotabad for the past two weeks, you know we just had an Olympic Olympics. Even for the uber-nerdy non-sports fans such as your dear NYC podiatrist, this was most interesting to watch and follow. And for those with time […]

Ouch

Is it 2016 already? Seems like those Olympics really sneak up on us, what with the heat, humidity and hot air that permeates the summer and this particular election season. And with the Olympic feats and feets, comes Olympic size injury, starting with an open tibial fracture suffered by gymnast Samir Ait Said early in […]

Comfortably Numb

It’s the dog days of summer here in NYC, and maybe time for a bit of light reading, something that can be stuffed in an overstuffed bag, taken to the beach, and then taken out while sitting on a lounge chair, only to be discarded with the detritus of summer fun and ocean refuse, or […]
