    "Dr. Shavelson is amazing!!! I came to him after injuring a tendon in my foot that runs up the inside of my calf. I had no idea what it was - my ankle was swollen and I limped around for a few days before find Dr. Shavelson on ZocDoc. From the moment I met him, I felt like I knew him my whole life.

    He's has a great sense of humor and made me feel at ease as soon as he examined my foot. He actually got on the phone and made the case to my insurance company to allow me to have an MRI right away - that same day! I was impressed.

    After my MRI and resting off my feet for about 5 days, I went back to see him and we began physical therapy visits 2x a week. It was a pleasure - he was never late and I never had any pain. He also used an amazing tape on my feet to help secure them in the position that they needed to be in for optimal healing. This stuff is amazing and even stays on after you shower.

    It's 3 months later and I feel great; no more pain! I have a new pair of inserts that he made for me in my shoes - I can run up and down stairs and walk for miles now.

    I have to also mention that his assistants and staff are some of the nicest I have ever come across and they have gone above and beyond to accommodate me with last minute rescheduling and insurance processing requests.

    I recommend him very highly!! "

    Athlete's Foot

    Athlete' s Foot is a common infection of the foot. It causes red, cracked skin and water filled blisters on the soles of the feet or between the toes that may itch or burn. It can infect the toenails (fungus toenails), causing them to become discolored and thickened.


    Diabetes and your Feet

    All diabetics are warned that their metabolic disease often affects the eyes, the kidneys and the feet with often tragic consequences. Poor circulation, numbness and burning, loss of balance and strength, foot ulcers, infections and all too often gangrene and amputation are commonly associated with Diabetes.



    A hammertoe is a dislocation of the joint of any one of the toes. It is described as a hammertoe because it bends under like a claw, or like the hammer in a piano. A corn or a callus usually will form either on the end of the toe or from shoe pressure on the prominent portion of the toe.
