About Dr. Elliot Diamond

Dr. Elliot Diamond has been a podiatrist for more than thirty years, blending complementary medicine strategies with podiatric concepts. His interest in Oriental Medicine, acupuncture and pain management were initially catalyzed as a graduate student at Penn State University. “My initial interest in podiatry began in 1974 when I was a graduate student in the Department of Health and Physical Education. While I was working on my Master’s Thesis, a podiatric medicine academy hired me to research and publish a textbook on muscle testing and corrective medicine for the Lower Extremity titled: “A Podiatric Resource Guide for Preventative and Rehabilitative Foot and Leg Care”, Futura Publishing Company, 1976. Once this textbook was published, I decided to attend the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine (then named the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine). My interest in acupuncture stemmed from my Master’s Thesis on Transcendental Medicine/Yoga and its relationship to psychological components and drug attitude and behavior. I achieved an Oriental Doctor Degree and have integrated acupuncture in my podiatry practice since 1983.” Due to my extensive training in both the USA and Japan, my interest in pain and sports medicine has a universal approach. Non-surgical techniques for “hard to heal” podiatric conditions are emphasized in our practice, but when surgery is required, we'll work with you to find the best option. *ZocDoc does not always show all open appointments.

Dr. Diamond did not rush through anything. He took the time to explain what he thought, and It made a lot of sense. I am hopeful for positive results.

I was seen rather quickly, however I went to the appointment for assistance with an ankle sprain and the whole appointment it seemed like they were more focused on my long term treatment of my gait, the way I walked, theway I plant my feet when I walk, etc. Which would be helpful for some people but I personally wasnt interested in the preventative care or getting down to the core of “what allowed my ankle to be sprained to begin with” I just wanted to figure out what was going on with my sprain. Nothing more, nothing less. I tried asking for assistance in buying some kind of ace bandage but the response from the Dr. was that “as you are a woman we like to focus more on invisible treatment so you arent walking around with a boot or bandage”. I think he is very knowledgeable but I felt like I was in an intense sales pitch presentation. Ultimately, I didnt recieve any kind of diagnoses or solution to my sprained ankle and now have more questions than answers.

I wish I found him sooner! He and his staff are extremely skilled with evaluating your feet to find out exactly what your needs are and then making a plan to restore functionality. In addition, he explained how and why myfeet developed issues in the first place. For that alone, it was worth the trek down to center city. He is also compassionate, funny, easy to talk to. His staff is exceptional as well.

So far, so good! I’ve been led to believe that surgery was the only option for my bunions. Dr Diamond has suggested some alternative options that have noticeably relieved the pain already! I will continue to follow his suggestions and highly rate this kind man!

Awesome experience. A unique and welcoming office. Dr. Diamond is outstanding, easy to talk with and makes everything very understandable. I have high confidence in him and, for the first time, that my long-term foot pain can actually be fixedrelatively simply and quickly. Never seen this kind of podiatric care anywhere else. So grateful to have found this practice.

After visiting two other podiatrists with foot pain associated with running, I finally found a place where my symptoms were taken seriously and someone spent more than 10 minutes with me. Dr. Diamond and his staff were just who I waslooking for - compassionate people with time to listen to my concerns and actual solutions. After just one visit (of a planned four or so), my foot is feeling somewhat better and I'm excited for my next visit.

The office is whacky looking. And yet I learned more about my feet in one visit than many expensive visits to the fancy foot guys in town. For the first time in a long time I feel hopeful about getting my foot issue resolved.

It was creepy. Really. The decor was New-Age-grunge, the staff ranged from kinda checked out and just very clearly not wanting to be there to outright contentious and condescending (mostly to the older patients that were having trouble tryingto navigate their see-we're-hip-ipad-check-in). They don't take credit cards for either in-office payment or follow-up invoices and push aggressively to add treatments that will not be covered by insurance that, again, must be paid in cash (or check). I'm really baffled by all the 5 star reviews. I went twice and felt dirty (physically and mentally) so I canceled the 3rd. Dr. Diamond has got a good list of bonafides and I know podiatry isn't quackery, but this office doesn't make a very strong case for it.

I am not a huge fan of visiting the doctor but Dr. Diamond and his entire staff made my appointment easy. He and his staff identified my problem quickly and made suggestions for a treatment program that avoided prescriptions or shots.I was thrilled with the options provided and can already see how this treatment program will help improve my problem. Love the early hours so that I can come in for my follow-up visits without missing work!

Wow!!!!! The best Dr visit I had ever!!! From the receptionist to the other Drs and assistants. Low key, professional, and 150% care. I brought my 85 year old Mother ( was a Nurse) who has been to so many otherpodiatrist to address her feet and never did they ever address her balance. She always loved to walk and is in incredibily great health but had been losing her Umph bc her feet hurt, which leads to her back aching and her balance was off. She has been unsteady for the past few years and would not really admit it. After our first visit we walked half mile to dinner and it was so liberating for her. Thank You all At Dr. Diamonds office and Dr. Diamond himself. He truly cares and takes the time to explain why this occuring. I could not believe the difference I saw in my Mother after one visit. I look forward to our next visit. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

Not the most formal office, (more holistic, which I prefer) but everyone in there is very knowledgeable and very nice. Dr. Diamond took care of my toe issue in one visit, unlike most doctors who would draw this out to atleast 2 visits. Also they didn't try and push a bunch of products on me. Very pleasant visit, especially considering I had impatient surgery.
