Why A Podaitrist

Why a Podiatrist?

Maybe you’ve never visited a podiatrist before. Perhaps you’ve never seen a need to go to a foot and ankle doctor, and therefore, the topic has not been given much thought. That’s okay. I’m here today to tell you why seeing a podiatrist may be just what the doctor ordered. My name is Doctor Paul Betschart, and I have a podiatry office here in Danbury, CT. I see lots of people all the time who have a plethora of problems with their feet: bunions, diabetic foot, flatfoot, ingrown toenails…you name it. Sometimes people put off going to the doctor because they feel that they can deal with issues on their own. However, home remedies fail while symptoms continue, and thus the pain sufferer knows that they must seek help from a professional. Perhaps you deal with sore feet at night. Maybe your toenails are discolored or cracked. Maybe you feel like your feet have lost their proper arch support. I would be happy to take a look at your feet and advise you regarding any underlying problems that you may not be aware of. You may be surprised about how much better you feel afterward. Why not visit me at my office here in Danbury?
