Your Feet Work Hard and So Do We
People tend to take their feet for granted. We all do it, even the doctors at Physician Partners of America. But feet are vitally important to your health. That’s why we have a dedicated podiatry department to help keep you walking and enjoying life.

You may not have had an opportunity in the past to talk with a podiatrist or even enjoy the services of one but here are some of the ailments that we cover:
We are frequently asked when does foot pain need to be looked at by a podiatrist? The answer is when you experience acute or chronic foot pain – and that includes your ankles. Pain is a sign that you should consult with an expert to figure out what’s going on with your feet.

Some medical conditions require you to visit a podiatrist like diabetes. Diabetic nerve pain results in very painful sensations in your feet. However, our doctors are here to help ease the pain and get you back on your feet.
While we treat all aspects of foot and ankle pain we specialize in cases of chronic pain. Chronic pain can occur with arthritis, orthopedic foot and ankle injuries, diseases of the foot and ankle or other injuries that also affect your feet or ankles.
What we strive for at Physician Partners of America is to get you out of pain and back to the life you love to lead.
The major difference between our services and any of our competitors is that they practice with a much more narrowed focus and tend to concentrate their podiatric services on the diabetic population.
At Physician Partners of America, our focus, along with our expertise, is much broader as we specialize in a wide variety of conditions.
Having a back infusion, and multiple Rhizotomies my mind couldn’t help but focus on the pain. It didn’t help that I would get everyday questions asking about my levels of pain everyday either. Feeling like a life long patient and not a person, I quickly became depressed. Not having any idea of what was going on with me; Dr. Caruso was able to read me like a book. He talked to me like a normal person, and we had more meaningful conversations than I’ve had with family members in months. During our sessions, I noticed that I was focused on the positive things about life, and the pain would dissipate for the time being. Dr. Caruso showed me how to use these conversational techniques to keep conversations on a more positive note, which greatly reduced my pain.
After having multiple operations, and being on several pain medications, I started to think there would never be a solution to my pain. When I visited Dr. Caruso, he noted my depression, and was concerned about my lack of ambition to live. He started to ask me about what excited me in life, which I had trouble answering at first. After a couple of sessions I could answer that question, and I re-gained my motivation to run my business. I was able to keep my mind off the pain by keeping it busy with running my business.
After suffering an injury on the job, I started to experience everyday pain in my leg. I was confined to a wheelchair during my recovery, and I was convinced I would be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. When I started physical therapy, I experienced excruciating pain and stopped going. While living with the pain, I visited Dr. Caruso where he understood what I was going through. He explained that physical therapy had a traumatic effect on me, and now I feared movement of my injured area because I didn’t want to intensify the pain. Using a tactic to reward me every time I moved, I slowly started to strengthen my legs. Though they were only baby steps, I’ve been able to take my first steps without any assistance for the first time in months.
