Tip: Many people turn to a podiatrist thinking that they have a foot condition. In a large percentage of cases, it turns out to be in relation to some other systemic disease. If you notice anything odd with your feet, experience pain or discomfort, don't wait too long before visiting an experienced podiatrist. The American Podiatric Medical Association's website is an excellent source of finding one in your area.
Under the direction of expert podiatrist Velimir Petkov, DPM, the team at Premier Podiatry offers cutting-edge solutions for a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions. This state-of-the-art Clifton, New Jersey podiatry practice is conveniently located on Clifton Avenue.
