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 […]

Super Blog

Here we stand once again, my dear NYC podiatry patients, in the post bowl descent back into the mundane. And those of you who know me, which apparently includes the 11.5 people who follow this ancient and sacred blog religiously as would devotees to a silly yet informative and entertaining set of arbitrary rituals, I […]

We’re Still Fungi

Well it’s a new year. And after a recent trip to a place full of exposed toenails, I have come to a few conclusions. First, the incidence of angulated toes, very flat feet, and colorful toenails in the general population seems to be quite lower than in my NYC podiatry waiting room. Second, I probably […]

Another Year in the Can

Well it just seemed appropriate and a lot cleaner than the John Oliver farewell to 2016. Sure has been an interesting one, a lot of changes on a micro and macro level, and capped off by the tragic demise of Princess Leia. And next year is shaping up to be even more interesting, starting oh, […]

We’re Not Mushrooms, We’re Fungi

It’s getting to be the winter doldrums here in NYC, cold enough for the toes to hibernate for the season, thus leaving the owner of said toes without a trace of a reminder of the fungus that may lurk deeply within those nails. But whether your nails are as green as the tree in the […]

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 […]
