Our goal is always to provide the highest level of friendly care for all patients. Most conditions can effectively be treated with conventional conservative measures with or without medications. Where appropriate, orthotic fabrication and surgical management are available.
“Each patient is an individual and is treated as I would a member of my own family”
– John M. Galant, DPM
I practice conservatively, and as such will use the most non-invasive, least painful treatment modality first whenever possible.
I believe in educating you about your condition and all possible treatment considerations.
Whenever possible I like to keep your activity level as normal as possible.
A detailed history and physical exam, including a discussion of the relationships of symptoms to various activities and, unfortunately, the reproduction of the pain, is the most powerful diagnostic tool.
Many individuals with no symptoms may have abnormal laboratory results and, similarly, many symptomatic patients may have normal results. Therefore test results must always be viewed in proper perspective.
I believe the physician-patient relationship is based upon mutual respect and communication. I will make every effort to explain my impressions and suggestions to you. I welcome your input, feedback, complaints and suggestions, and expect your compliance once a plan of care is agreed upon.
