Hello, My name is Dr. Irene Arroyo and I am one of the podiatrists at Dallas Podiatry Works in Dallas and Plano. Today I am going to talk about gout. Gout is: a type of inflammatory arthridity. The big toe joint is the most common joint affected but it can occur in other joints such as ankles, knees, and […]

Unexpected bumps in the night can be quite spooky. You’re not sure what caused them and you’re left wondering if it’s a sign of danger or a problem that can wait for morning. The same can be said for unexpected bumps on the side of your foot. An unusual foot bump is a sign that […]
When you say someone is “getting on your nerves,” you mean that particular person is annoying or frustrating you in some way. As with many common sayings, it isn’t literal, but there are times when something literally on a nerve can cause problems – like the development of a neuroma. What is a neuroma? Well, […]
In other parts of the country, people might be quick to think about tunnels as being underground features or something trains go through. Here in Dallas, though, you might think about our Dallas Pedestrian Network, which obviously connects various city attractions, offices, and hotels. One cool thing about this system is that it developed organically. […]

Do you know what arthritis is? If you are like most people, you are probably thinking that this is a condition of stiff, painful joints that older people experience as the result of wear-and-tear on the body. This is certainly true…but only in certain cases. Arthritis is actually a “catch all” term used for over […]
Too many people think arthritis is a single medical condition. Further, there is a common misconception that this source of joint pain and stiffness only happens to older people as a result of wear and tear over time. We believe the key to this misunderstanding is that one of the types of arthritis—the most common one, […]
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.
