Thank you for taking the time to look at my practice. I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you a little bit about my philosophy, the practice and myself.
My Philosophy: I have spent the last 21 years providing Podiatric care to residents of the Lehigh Valley. Each day I strive to be at my best to provide the best possible care to patients. This means that I must at all costs be a good listener, a good practitioner, and in most cases a friend. Over the years I have developed long standing relationships that grew out of taking the time to listen to my patient’s complaints and addressing them in a kind, compassionate and caring manner. My greatest rewards are curing a complex problem, putting an anxious patient at ease, and educating patients on how to avoid future problems.”
The Practice: Stahl Foot and Ankle opened in October 2011. It is the most gratifying experience of my career. I am blessed daily with the opportunity to go to work at a practice with my name on it. I am acutely aware of the importance of running a well oiled machine. A patient could expect that from the time they call to make an appointment until the time that they check-out after that appointment that they will be treated in a courteous, respectful, and professional manner. I want patients to love my practice as much as I do.
About Myself: Most prior patients will tell you that I am very easy to get along with. I do my best to explain diagnoses and treatments in easy to understand ways. I have a great affinity for humor and I frequently use humor to ease a tense situation or to make a patient feel comfortable.
When I get time for myself you can find me either bass fishing on some local lake or in the woods hunting. It is during these times that I find inner peace. I am actively involved in my community and I spend large amounts of my time helping out at my church.
