Skeletons, ghosts and witches – oh my! Halloween will soon be upon us and this fun time of the year brings out the kid in all of us. If you have a family with children, finding fun and safe events is easy around a city like Dallas, TX. If you have enough nerve, check out the Cutting Edge Haunted House in Fort Worth, TX, which is said to be the biggest in the world. Kids can also enjoy the Looney Tunes Spooky Town at Fright Fest, taking place at the Six Flags amusement park in Arlington, TX through October 27th, 2013.
Wherever your adventures take you, keep in mind some important tips that will keep everyone in the family safe. If you are out at night, do what you can to be seen. Wear something that glows in the dark or carry a flashlight. A costume that is too long, a mask that doesn’t fit well or poor shoes could be hazardous for your child to walk in. Make sure their costume fits well and send them out with good footwear if they will be walking all over the neighborhood. A foot injury or blisters would be a poor way to end a fun night. Always walk in groups or send children with a trusted adult and remind them of street safety. Advise kids to wait to snack on their treats until you have had a chance to check them out. Dump everything out and don’t eat anything that is not in a wrapper. Avoid eating any homemade treats that are made by strangers.
At the end of it all, if your fun Halloween activities have left you with any foot pain or problems, contact Dallas Podiatry Works. Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo, and McClurkin find the reason for your discomfort and get you back to life without pain in no time. Make an appointment at our office in Dallas, TX by calling 972.853.7100 or in Plano, TX at (972) 943-3323. Have a happy Halloween and stay safe!
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.
