Dr. Joel Brook is a board-certified podiatrist and foot and ankle surgeon at Dallas Podiatry Works in TX.
“Hi my name is Melissa. I’m a medical assistant. Today I’m going to be showing the post-operative procedure for treating a wart. Once the procedure has been performed, you’re going to want to leave the bandage on for 4-5 hours.
Then, after the 4-5 hours you want to inspect the area for any blisters. If there are any blisters, you’re going to want to grab a sterile needle and puncture the blister to drain it. Once it’s been drained, you can apply antibiotic ointment and a band-aid. Over the next 24-48 hours blisters may reoccur. Once again, you’re going to just want to grab the sterile needle and drain it.
Once the area has cleared of blisters, you will grab one of two treatments. Either the VeruCide or the Wart Stick.
The Wart Stick, you want to just grab a glob of it and place it directly in the lesion site. You want to make sure that you get it directly there because if you get it on the good skin it could eat away at that skin – you want it to eat away at the wart. Then apply a band-aid.
The second treatment option we have is to apply the VeruCide. The first step that you want to do is apply step one, and you want to apply one to two drops to the area. After you’ve applied those one to two drops, grab step two and apply step two. You will place it directly on the lesion site. Once you’ve done that, you are going to apply the band-aid to the area, and you’re going to do this over the next couple of weeks until your next follow-up appointment.
You’re going to want to quit using the treatment options 4-5 days prior to your appointment. If you have any questions or concern, please give us a call. Thank you for being our patient and we are honored to be a part of your healthcare team!”
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.
