The body relies on circulation to ensure that all parts and tissue receive the nourishment they need. When this process is impaired by a condition like peripheral arterial disease, it can lead to a range of issues, including intermittent claudication. Being able to understand and recognize claudication may actually play a big role in keeping you […]
Have you ever sat on the floor cross-legged for too long and had pins and needles in your feet when you stood up? They can cause your feet to feel so sensitive it is difficult to even step on the floor. Some people have this feeling on a regular basis—it’s called peripheral neuropathy. In addition […]
Diabetes is a complex and life-altering disease. It affects everything: your eating habits, your immune system responses, and your chances of developing a life-threating condition. The health of your feet is actually a good indicator for the disease’s progression and control in your life. Healthy, well-cared for feet are typically a sign of controlled blood sugar levels. […]
If the bones in your feet broke suddenly, you would notice. The sharp pain and immediate weakness in your foot would severely impair your ability to walk. If you had a condition that deadened your nerves, however, and the deterioration in your joints happened over a longer period of time, you might not notice the […]
Imagine stepping on a sharp pebble. Usually your first reaction is to pick your foot up as quickly as possible so you’re no longer standing on the little rock! You might limp around for a few seconds until your sole feels better, but at least you no longer have a painful object pressing into your […]
There are some things that gain value as they age. Antique dealers are always on the lookout for pieces that have a certain “wear and tear” look that will bring a high price tag. Our feet on the other hand, don’t always fair as well when they have experienced a lot of wear and tear. […]
You’ve probably heard the classic children’s song before: the leg bone’s connected to the hip bone, the hip bone’s connected to the back bone—and on and on. It’s simple but insightful, reminding us that everything in our bodies is connected. When you have knee pain or hip pain, knowing everything is connected could be the key […]
Your foot has an incredible design. All of the parts fit together in such a way as to be flexible and moveable while still being very strong. One of the important parts of the foot is your arch. Located in the middle of your foot, it is slightly raised off the ground and helps you […]
The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.
The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.
I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
Been having bad ankle pains for 6 months was referred here and it was a great visit ladies in the front desk medical assistants and the Doctor were all very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
