Raynaud’s disease is when the small arteries that circulate blood in the extremities, such as the hands and feet, become narrow due to vapospasms. Vapospasms are contractions that can occur due to stress or cold temperatures. The result is the affected areas feeling numb and cold as a result of the restricted blood circulation. It most commonly affects women and those living in cold climates. Raynaud’s disease usually does not involve treatment, aside from exercising to maintain good circulation and keeping warm with thick gloves and socks in cold weather. There are medications available to treat the disease if symptoms worsen.
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.
My family loves Dr Stevens we have been his patients for many years. He treats us like family. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Not only is Dr. Stevens an amazing Dr., he is kind and patient. Having an elderly father, he always took the time to make him feel comfortable and welcome. Thank you Dr. Stevens for your professionalism and and for your kind disposition! The world is blessed to have such a great, kind and wonderful Doctor. […]
Wonderful care. Great staff, helpful and efficient. Dr. Stevens got me healed up and back to work.
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.
Everyone at the office is extremely professional and friendly. Appointments are easily made and of course the doctors are great!
I especially appreciate the friendly, respectful reception by the staff and the on-time care and attention to small (and big) problems provided by Dr. Stevens.
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!
