The Center is under the medical direction of Dr. Josef J. Geldwert. Dr. Geldwert is widely recognized as one of the leading New York Podiatrists. Here at The Center, we offer comprehensive treatment of functional problems of the foot and ankle, fitting and modification of orthotic inserts and podiatric sports medicine services. The Center provides quality care to those who suffer from chronic back and knee or foot problems stemming from abnormal biomechanics or sports injuries.
The doctors’ goal is to “get patients back quickly to their sport or healthy lifestyle.”
Our renown NY Podiatrists and staff pride themselves in prompt and courteous treatment of conditions ranging from minor toenail or cosmetic foot problems to major reconstructions of deformities or correcting a previous failed surgery. Our goal is to not only provide you with quality foot care, but also be as timely as possible. We know your time is valuable and we will make every attempt for you to avoid a lengthy wait.
Both our Manhattan and Westchester facilities provide a comfortable and efficient setting that allows us to both diagnose and treat any foot problems quickly and thoroughly. We welcome you to our practice and thank you for giving us the opportunity to care for you and your family in all your foot and ankle needs.

About Our Services and Facilities
On your first visit, you will be interviewed about your medical history and your present health. One of our doctors will then examine you to determine the nature of your ailment. Once the doctor has diagnosed your problem,they will explain your problem to you and will schedule you for the proper treatment and care.
