I am a young professional who recently graduated from graduate school. At the start of my career I was frequently on my feet. After sometime passed and experiencing pain I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Bar-David. He told me that I had bilateral bunions which required surgery in order to stop the pain. Initially, I was nervous to undergo surgery because of the recovery time and I had heard that the pain was excruciating.
"professional and caring"
I am a “New Yorker”! This means I walk everywhere—a minimum of 3-5 miles a day, much more than the average non-New-Yorker! Add to that, I am a runner, biker and swimmer. Ugly feet I can handle, painful feet, not so much. I had severe metatarsal pain on the ball of my foot and a large bunion deformity. I visited Dr. Bar David and I was very pleased. He listened to me, my foot pain issues and the fact that I was not going to stop walking.
"he made me feel comfortable"
My name is Danielle Velez, I am a 23 year old athlete. When I was a freshman in college I had an injury to my large toe joint that was misdiagnosed. My athletic trainers kept injecting my injured joint with cortisone just to relieve the pain. The injury became so bad that the next year I could barely walk. My foot would turn black and blue and the pain was unbareable. When I came home on break I went to see Dr. Bard-David and he diagnosed me with Traumatic Arthritis of great toe joint -- Hallux Rigidus. I was unsure if I was ever going to be able to run or play rugby again.
