Ground Breaking Launches New Center for Community Health and Minority Medicine
June 19, 2007
The Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine is pleased to announce the grand opening of the Barry University Foot and Ankle Institute at Bay Harbor Islands. "The new medical center will provide the same high quality podiatric health care services as our other three Foot and Ankles Institutes," according to Dr. John Nelson, associate dean of clinics for Barry's School of Podiatric Medicine. Moreover, the new center will offer in-office surgery which will save patients from the high costs of hospital deductibles for bunion and hammertoe corrective surgeries.
The Barry University Foot and Ankle Institutes, first established in 1986, are part of the clinical training component for podiatric medical students and residents of Barry University. The center will utilize the best possible and most innovative techniques for care and treatment of disorders of the foot and ankle. For example, laser treatment will be available for removal of cutaneous lesions such as warts and moles as well as spider veins. In addition to general podiatric care, other services will include, wound care, diabetic foot care, athletic injuries, and a diabetic shoe service which is available free to diabetic elders through Medicare.
The center, located at 1080-1090 Kane Concourse ( NW 96th Street) in Bay Harbor Islands, will open on July 9, 2007, and is open to Miami area residents from pediatrics to seniors. Each patient will be personally attended to by a board certified Barry University clinical faculty member, podiatric medical students and residents. All forms of insurance are accepted including, HMOs, Medicare, Medicaid, workman's compensation, and private pay. Hours of service are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 305-893-9366.
