Foot care is a vital part of our wellness routine at the Lodge and we now have a visiting podiatrist available to our residents on a regular basis. We have recently enlisted Dr. Marie Paul, through a program called MD24, to begin making regular stops at the Lodge to care for our residents.
Dr. Paul is originally from Far Rockaway, New York and she completed her podiatry residency at St. John’s Episcopal hospital in Rockaway after graduating from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine in 1989. Dr. Paul is a member of the American Podiatric Medical Association and has been practicing podiatry for 22 years. Her practice includes comprehensive podiatric services to adults to diagnose and treats all foot and ankle problems such as simple tendonitis conditions, bunions, heel pain, and ankle sprains, corns, calluses, warts, ingrown toe nails, bunions, claw and hammer toes, heel pain and spurs, tendonitis, flat or arch feet pain and shin splints. Her main clinic has evolved around Diabetic Neuropathy’s and treatment for pain.
