Our feet are pretty remarkable, even though we often don’t give them the recognition they deserve! In fact, the average person will walk about 110,000 miles by the time they turn 80 years old. Unfortunately, pain and other issues that impact our feet could be signs of more serious health problems, which is why you should turn to your Phoenix, and Glendale, AZ, podiatrist Dr. Michael Dershowitz. There are many benefits to visiting a foot doctor.
We Offer Specialized Care
While your primary care physician is great for addressing your overall health and concerns, they aren’t going to be ideal for treating more complex or specific matters. So, if you are dealing with foot or ankle problems you’ll want to turn to an expert who truly knows the intricate inner workings of the feet and ankles. This is where your Phoenix, and Glendale, AZ, podiatrist comes in. Dr. Dershowitz is a foot specialist and expert in his field. He has diagnosed, treated, and managed a wide range of injuries, conditions, and diseases that impact the feet and ankles.
