Based on the way my son walks, and how he wears his shoes out like crazy, I'm beginning to think he my need arches. Who would I go to check this out? A podiatrist? Some other specialist?

Any recommendations in Brooklyn?

Thanks for this recommendation, I hope to go to him for my sons! I need to verify if he takes my insurance. Any recommendations for a place to fill the arches prescription or does Dr. Lacerte take care of that as well?
I have tried Teitelbaum as well as Dr. Shulman. Looking for a different place please

How old is your son?

If he's still young , before you consider arches, go to Yossi at Oomph shoe store on 16th Ave. He has an unbelievable fit and he'll tell you if your son needs arches or a good shoe will do the job.

Yes he takes care of that. He is gentle and very good. He is also very considerate with pricing if you happen to not have insurance.

In my experience, Tzvi- Bar David 212 355 4229 in Manhattan has expertise others do not have.

It is worth the shlep, and the time. Insurance may cover the arches but if not, his arch expertise is like no other doctor.
