Are you one of the millions who are bothered by thickened yellow nails? Perhaps they have crumbling edges and are turning darker day by day? It could be nail fungus developing, and because of the persistent nature of onychomycosis (nail fungus) you will want to see Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo, McClurkin and Tran at Dallas Podiatry Works right away to get it treated. Don’t let it get a strong “foot hold.”
Nail fungus is an infection that may first appear as a small white or yellowish spot at the tip of your nail. As the infection spreads, your nail may thicken and darken. It becomes unpleasant to look at, sometimes has an odor and eventually may cause pain. Toenail fungus is hard to treat and once treated, they can possibly recur.
Thankfully, there is a laser treatment now approved by the FDA for treatment of nail fungus. It is called the Q Clear Q Switch laser. Laser treatments have been around for about 20 years, but only recently has one been developed that had truly positive results. Others have been not so effective and cost more to provide. The Q Clear laser works efficiently to kill the fungus in the nail bed and sometimes only requiring one treatment. Once the fungus is killed, your body takes over and grows a clear healthy nail, but this will take several months. The treatment only takes about 10 minutes to treat both feet, and people state the procedure is pain free, with the only sensation being a slight tingling in the immediate area.
If you are one of the millions who is embarrassed by the unsightly condition of your fungus infected toenails and have tried the home remedies, over the counter preparations, liquids, oils and creams, only to have minimal success, call Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo, McClurkin and Tran from Dallas Podiatry Works at 972.853.7100 in Dallas, or (972) 943-3323 Baylor/Plano and learn about the Q Clear laser and how you can get a cosmetic makeover for your toes!
Do you have a fungal nail success story to share? We would love to hear your comments!
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.
