Simon Donets - Chicago Foot Doctor - Chicago PodiatristTraditionally, women alone have cared for their feet as a scheduled ritual. Now, thanks to generous advances in medicine, we are living longer. EVERYONE must pay close attention to their feet . . . Not only to extend life, but also quality of life. My goal, as a physician, is to keep my patients walking; my goal as a professional, is to keep my patients walking comfortably (in the shoes they love).
