Our Dallas and Plano, TX, foot doctor offers expert treatment for various foot conditions, including hammertoes and claw toes. These deformities are often the result of genetics and can be exacerbated by wearing the wrong kinds of shoes, especially for women.
Women’s footwear often includes pointy-toed high heels, which can create issues in the structure of the foot. Claw toes occur when when the toe joints closest to your ankle point up, whereas hammertoes result in toes that curl or bend downward, instead of pointing forward. These deformities can cause the joints of your toes to rub uncomfortably against the inside of your shoe. When the condition progresses, your toes may become stiff and inflexible. If you suspect that you have or may be developing claw toes or hammertoes, we can help you with treatment and advice on shoes that may be better for your particular foot structure.
At Dallas Podiatry Works, we don’t want to just treat your foot problems; we want to educate you. Knowing more about the source of your foot pain is empowering, and it allows you to choose a treatment plan that is right for 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.
