Are you one of many who go all summer long hiding your feet when others around you have no problem baring their toes? Is it due to the unsightly condition of toenail fungus that makes your feet less than attractive? If you’ve ever declined an invitation to spend a glorious afternoon on a friend’s boat because you are too embarrassed to go barefoot, you need to receive some help and the podiatrists at Dallas Podiatry Works are here for you!
Toenail fungus is fairly common and affects close to ten percent of Americans. It is a living organism that survives in warm, damp and dark locations. This is one reason to allow your sneakers and feet plenty of sunny drying time. Sunlight and fresh air are two natural enemies of this fungus. It can also live in gyms and locker rooms, patiently waiting for its next unsuspecting host. Wear flip-flops or water shoes when in a public shower or locker room. Once this fungus gets a foothold, it can be difficult to get rid of. Symptoms to look out for are:
If you currently struggle with a nail fungus, don’t be held hostage by this ailment any longer. Contact Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo, and McClurkin about the KeryFlex nails restoration system. This is a cosmetic process, which takes about 15 minutes and when complete it forms an artificial nail that lasts a couple of months. It allows your natural nail an opportunity to grow in. It’s totally painless too! Our podiatrists can create and sculpt a lovely new nail for you after cleaning and preparing your toenail area.
KeryFlex is available in three shades, so it’s easy to match to your skin tone. It is also resistant to acetone and detergents, so you can continue with those oh so luxuriating pedicures. Once your toes are back in picture perfect shape, tips to prevent the fungus from returning include; wear shower shoes or flip-flops when in gyms, locker rooms or public showers. Rotate shoes to keep them dry and aired out. Use anti-fungal sprays.
For more information on fungal nails and/or toenail restoration with the KeryFlex system, call Dallas Podiatry Works at 972.853.7100 in Dallas, or Baylor/Plano (972) 943-3323. Then be a little brave and go out and expose your toes!
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.
