Services We Offer
BunionsA bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. They can develop from an inherited structural defect, excess stress on your foot, or can result from an existing medical condition.
CallusesCalluses, on the other hand, don’t usually cause pain. They usually develop on the soles of your feet, especially under the heels or balls, on your palms, or on your knees.

What Our Patients Are Saying
When Dr. Domenico suggested trying ultrasonic therapy for my injured plantar fascia, I had my doubts, but I'm now a believer! 8 treatments with his extraordinary nurse Sue, and my foot feels as though it never sustained the injury. Now, on to stretching and using common sense for the rest of the journey back. If I sustain so much as an ingrown toenail, Dr. Domenico will be the man who's help I'll be seeking!
Sue and Kimberly at Dr Domenico’s office go out of their way to greet you and make you feel comfortable. I never see them idle they are always busy doing something.
Dr. Domenico has a very well run and efficient office. I was in and out in 45 minutes and during that time had xrays, a consultation, and treatment. Dr. Domenico communicated all of my options and we came up with a treatment plan that fits my current lifestyle.
Today was my first visit with Dr. Domenico. Right from the start I felt so comfortable talking to him. He made me feel like he was on my side and listened to my concerns. I had seen another podiatrist and needed a second opinion and I'm very glad that I choose to come here. Looking forward to working with a doctor and hoping to resolve the issues I have.
