DR. HARRIS GREENBERGER, founder of Sound Foot Care Center of Connecticut, provides cutting-edge aesthetic, medical and surgical podiatric care in a relaxed, spalike atmosphere. In private practice for over 10 years, he treats a wide variety of conditions in both children and adults. Among the most common ailments are sports injuries, flat feet, bunions, neuromas, heel pain, toenail fungus and foot problems related to diabetes.
Dr. Greenberger, who completed his medical studies at Temple University, School of Podiatric Medicine, says he has seen a surge of patients seeking aesthetic and cosmetic treatments. “We started using the PinPointe laser, the only FDA-cleared laser treatment for nail fungus, two years ago and have been overwhelmed by the response. We have treated over 1,000 individuals with this condition who have come to us because they are embarrassed about the way their feet look. Finally, we have a safe and effective way to treat nail fungus instead of prescribing medications with potentially harmful side effects.” He continues: “We’re also seeing a demand for other progressive, noninvasive procedures. For example, many people who suffer from heel pain and have failed conventional treatments are now walking pain-free after undergoing a new radio-frequency procedure in our office. We are constantly incorporating the latest medical and surgical treatments to improve the lives of our patients.”
Dr. Greenberger feels fortunate to be able to contribute to his patients’ overall health. “In many instances, I’m able to provide almost immediate relief,” he says. “It is very gratifying to be able to keep patients active and free of pain. This is the reason I became a physician: I enjoy making people feel better. I’m not just evaluating their feet; I’m providing care that ultimately affects their entire well-being.”
When asked how the Internet has affected his practice, Dr. Greenberger says, “Patients are becoming more informed consumers. They are doing their research and educating themselves before seeing me. Often, they find me while searching for answers and solutions to their foot problems. My website has become an extension of my practice.”
