Dr. Patricia Antero
“Life is about movement and near constant motion is today’s norm. If walking and standing are restricted or painful, your quality of life suffers. I’ve trained extensively to treat most foot and ankle problems, even if it requires surgery. When patients entrust their care to me, they quickly learn that their goals and mine are the same…obtain maximum improvement in the shortest time. I find that the likelihood of success increases when patients and I work as a team. This team approach begins your first visit by investing extra time in getting to know each other. Each patient is unique, and I treat you as such. By building some rapport, patients are more at ease and confident, which results in obtaining the detailed information necessary to make an accurate diagnosis. It also helps me devise the most effective treatment plan, and be assured, we utilize the most advanced treatment alternatives. After practicing podiatry for 20 years, it’s still gratifying when patients relate how I’ve contributed to improving their movement, which resulted in improving their quality of life.”
