Routine self-examinations of the feet are an important way to find skin cancer early, when it’s easiest to treat and cure. Sadly, half of the people diagnosed with melanoma of the foot die within five years after the cancer had already spread throughout their body. If melanoma is detected in its earliest stages, 92 percent of patients are alive after five years.
Many patients have a perception of the podiatrist as the doctor who freezes plantar warts and fixes bunions. While these things do happen in our office, did you know that the foot doctor is the professional to call in the case of ankle pain or after a foot injury?
We are pleased to announce the arrival of Dr. Grace Craig (“Dr. Grace”) to our practice, starting July 17, 2017. She is the wife of Dr. Alexander Craig. “Dr. Grace” is joining our group at a time of great growth, allowing us to serve you better not only with more availability, but also with the skills and experience that we have always provided. She will be practicing at both office locations in Rocky River and South Euclid.
Whether you want to believe it or not (and none of us do), the end of the year is fast approaching. Yikes! This means the holidays are going to be upon us and we will find ourselves at our absolute busiest! But, this also means that deductibles and maximums expire soon!
