What do you wish more people understood about foot care?
“Most patients don’t perceive a problem until the complications have set in, like deformity or arthritis, so problems aren’t detected until middle age or older. If you feel there’s any problem at a young age, don’t dismiss it. People are often told they’ll outgrow it, and generally they don’t. When I see patients, I take the time to explain their foot type and what issues they may experience over time.”
What’s something people might not know about you?
“I play loud music. Typically British Blues or music from the ‘70s - Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath. I’ve played guitar since I was about 15. I’ve been a musician since I was 6 years old - I played piano and taught myself guitar. Music has always been a love of mine.”
