"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.

"Dr. Shavelson gave me advice on how to handle a juvenile bunion. Although I will most probably need surgery he did not pressure me into getting the procedure done quickly, and instead went through measures I could take to fix it slightly and prevent the bunion from getting worse, and to correct the mechanics underlying it so that if/when I do have surgery, I will be more likely to make a permanent recovery."

"I had such a great experience with Dr. Shavelson. He took so much time to investigate my condition and personable and helpful. I'm very relieved to have found such practice."

"Absolutely fantastic doctor. Quickly recognized my ankle problem wasn't in fact any ankle problem but a high foot problem. Prepped himself before our meeting based on what info I gave him. Very professional, highly recommend."

"Dr. Shavelson was very kind, knowledgeable and helpful. He went above and beyond to educate me about the root cause of my issue instead of just giving me a quick solution. I would highly recommend seeing him!"

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.
