It All Starts With Caring!®

This is the philosophy of our Northwest Indiana podiatrists. Your heel, foot and ankle pain and problems matter, but so do you – as a person. Our podiatrists treat your heel, foot and ankle pain and problems, but they also will address your special needs and unique concerns. More than your feet, YOU matter!


Our Podiatrist Northwest Indiana office is a friendly, “down-to-earth” atmosphere for your care


Our podiatrist Northwest Indiana office goes about treating patients quite differently — the podiatrists and staff get to know each patient and cater to their special needs. For example, if you have an outpatient heel, foot or ankle surgery your foot doctor will personally call you the next day. This warm, personal attention and caring we believe sets us apart and it helps get your feet feeling as good as possible as fast as possible.

“Dr. Nirenberg is the best Podiatrist I ever had. He does everything he can to help. I have seen a post once where someone did not like the office staff because they would not chat with her while she waited to go back in the treatment, the staff is not there to talk to us except to say hello and check us in otherwise they are there to work. Everyone there is friendly, why else would it be called Friendly Foot Care. I will tell everyone I know and if someone asks me I will always refer them to Friendly Foot Care.”
