Professional Statement

While attending the University of Iowa, I looked for a career in the medical field that was challenging and yet set in a controlled comfortable environment. My studies lead me to the Des Moines University College of Podiatric Medicine in Des Moines, Iowa. I was thrilled that there was a study of medicine that was mostly beloved by its patients and not feared like many others in the medical field. Being a foot and ankle specialist has allowed me to work in a comfortable office setting and surgical centers rather than working on floors of a hospital. I am hoping that this brief introduction into my patient care philosophy and educational background will provide you with enough information for you to make an important decision about your foot and ankle physician. The doctor is often more to be feared than the disease. ~French Proverb This Proverb hold true in today's system of medicine and says a lot about the perceived doctor patient relationship. In my clinical experience, patient comfort and education during an appointment are the most important aspects of any doctor visit. My goal as a physician is to make the appointment as relaxing and calming as possible, and to also educate the patient about the condition and possible treatments. I encourage all questions about the condition and treatments. I will explore all options of treatment for every condition and I will only consider surgery when all conservative treatment has been exhausted. Educational and training background is also important for the patient to consider making an informed decision about their physician. I graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Chemistry before heading to medical school in Des Moines, Iowa. My education finally ended here in the Chicago area where I completed a rigorous multi-year surgical residency at Norwegian American Hospital. At Norwegian American Hospital, I completed over 800 foot and ankle procedures in 24 months. I am trained in all surgeries of the foot and ankle including reconstructive surgery. While training at my residency, I took numerous classes on lower limb deformities and External Fixation techniques all around the country. I have published two papers with one on them being in the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association. Currently, I have privileges at Norwegian American Hospital and numerous surgical centers in Chicago and the southwest suburbs. I am also involved with the training of residents in Chicago, teaching surgical techniques. I hope you find this web site informative in your search for a foot and ankle specialist. I thank you for your time.

The staff was friendly. The office is paperless so you use a tablet of sorts to enter your information which is nice. I was early and was called back after a very short wait. The Dr. Was friendly, addressed my issues and took some digital xrays which he showed me immediately. We discussed his treatment plan. I did not feel rushed, I felt he was knowledgeable, and I am confident I picked the right place.

I loved my visit, and at this time will not be seeing my current DPM anymore. I have found a new DPM. I really liked the game plan that doctor Breck came up with. My current DPM wants to perform another surgery which will be my 4th surgery in approx. 10 years. Although there is a slight chance of some type of light surgery in the future we are going with non-invasive procedures for now. Everything sounds great. Rich S. Happy new patient
