Deposits of cholesterol, known as xanthomas, can accumulate in the Achilles tendon as a result of high cholesterol levels in the body. The tiny lumps can be alleviated by general strategies to lower cholesterol; however, xanthomas may need further treatment, such as a biopsy of the legion that does not rupture the nodule.

Dear Dr. Gomez: One of the strongest of all relationships is the one between a physician and a patient.

Dr. Stevens is a brilliant podiatrist! I always know that my feet are well taken care of because Dr. Stevens is highly knowledgeable. He frequently attends seminars to learn about the latest procedures and medicines. He is wise, kind, and he has a great sense of humor as well. I highly recommend him!
No matter what day or time of my appointment, I find the entire staff, pleasant, cordial and helpful — also, there are no long waits for appointments — usually quite prompt from the time of the appointment to the time I am brought to the examining room.
Still want more feedback on numbness, but understand waiting. Ingrown nail procedure was the 5th I’ve had, and the first that was 100% pain free. Doctor was thorough, answered all my questions politely, and gave me some confidence this would all go away on its own. Glad I chose this place.
Everyone at the office is extremely professional and friendly. Appointments are easily made and of course the doctors are great!
My family loves Dr Stevens we have been his patients for many years. He treats us like family. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.
The entire staff is wonderful, very accommodating when scheduling an appointment and Dr. Stevens is very attentive listening to all concerns. Highly recommended.
