A good podiatrist?

bottom of bare footNaomi emails:

Can any of your readers recommend a good podiatrist?

So, can anyone lend Naomi a hand (or, uh, foot) on this one? Please share!

And if you have a recommendation, please include why you're recommending that doctor.


I have two recommendations!

I've gone to Dr. Marc Ginsberg and Dr. Sondra Berger of Capital Region Footcare in the past. They're EXCELLENT. They're attentive, listen to questions, and Dr. Ginsberg did an amazing job on my foot surgery. I heartily recommend them both.

Dr. Ginsberg is definitely the best. Dr. Berger is not there anymore, but the doctor that took her place, Dr. Mason, is really great as well. Have been seeing them for almost a year now and they are both really good at what they do. Another vote for Capital Region Footcare!

Check out Foot Care of Clifton Park - I am not a patient but I know the Lams personally and they are great people, the kind of people you want looking after you and your family's health and well-being.


If you're considering surgery, get a second opinion from an orthopedic surgeon.

Mindy Lam or any of the Lams (Clifton Park, Schenectady, Albany offices) are fantastic. After having been to ortho surgeons and other podiatrists for 10 years with severe foot pain, and being told it was "only arthritis" Dr. Mindy Lam took the time to listen and figure out that it was more than arthritis. A simple surgery corrected the problem and my quality of life greatly improved. She listens to her patients, takes time with them and never gives up. Awesome. And when it comes to foot and ankle surgeries, she's likely done more than an ortho surgeon!!!

I, too, visited Mindy Lam on Western Ave. and found it to be a pleasant experience when I had a foot injury. She was nice. I only needed to go once, but I would go back. The office was also very helpful when I called back with questions.
