While playing on a typical 18-hole golf course, a golfer walks up to five miles, which adds up to about three to five hours of standing and walking. In addition to spending many hours on your feet, the biomechanics of a powerful, successful swing also rely on properly-positioned feet. Golf shoes should therefore be comfortable, lightweight, and well-cushioned, with a snugger-than-usual fit in the mid-shoe area for support during swings. They should be made of a breathable, water-resistant material. The sole should provide traction; serious golfers may choose to wear spikes for additional traction and stability. There are many different types of spikes available, and some golf courses have regulations as to what types of spikes can be worn. When trying on golf shoes, always wear the socks you will actually wear while golfing to ensure a proper shoe fit.
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!
I had wonderful care by Dr. Stevens. He took the time to listen to what I said & validated my concerns. Never kept me waiting and has flexible office hours. I am extremely pleased with my treatment.
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!
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.
Dear Dr. Gomez: One of the strongest of all relationships is the one between a physician and a patient. In honor of National Doctor’s Day, the Development Department invited donors and friends of Saint Barnabas Medical Center to honor their physician with a charitable gift. We are delighted to let you know that Mr. and […]
The entire staff is wonderful, very accommodating when scheduling an appointment and Dr. Stevens is very attentive listening to all concerns. Highly recommended.
Very nice and polite!!! They make sure that you’re treated the right way.
