FL Podiatrist Creates Scholorship Program for Student Athletes

Seniors student athletes from each of Collier County’s public high schools were awarded certificates and sports medals and have become eligible for one of three $2,500 scholarships awarded in late spring.

Dr. Mickey E. Gordon

Mickey E. Gordon, DPM, a Naples podiatrist with Gulfcoast Foot & Ankle Center, created the program after hearing of the difficult times his patients’ children and grandchildren were having with increased expenses of a college education. During his 31-year career as a podiatric physician and surgeon, Dr. Gordon has treated many athletic and sports injuries and has become well aware that lower extremity injuries are all too common in high school sports.

Gordon recruited his bank, Bank of Florida - Southwest and hospital Physicians Regional Medical Center to jointly pledge three $2,500 scholarships for student athletes. “It is a pleasure to recognize these student athletes for their hard work and accomplishments both in the classroom and on the field, court, pool or track,” said Dr. Gordon.

Canadian Podiatrist Opens New Clinic in Duncan


A new podiatry clinic has opened in Duncan. Dr. Michael Feist, who is currently the only full-time podiatrist in the Cowichan Valley, opened his clinic this week. He will be joined there once a week by Victoria-based Dr. Heidi Postowski, who had been practicing part-time in the Valley from another location. Feist practiced in Terrace, BC for 22 years before he recently decided to move to the Valley.


Dr. Michael Feist


A number of podiatrists on the Island have either retired or are having medical concerns recently, so there is a shortage of podiatrists in the region. "With 80,000 people living in the Valley, I expect that I’ll be busy."

Investigative TV Reporter Saves NY Podiatrist from Loan Scam


A Long Island man whose company boasts of being able to get loans for corporations and individuals, good credit or bad, has allegedly taken fees from customers and then failed to give them loans. Anthony Kline works as managing director of Bridgehampton Funding, headquartered in Ronkonkoma, Long Island. Kline apparently took a $2,350 retainer and broker fee from Dr. Bill Dalosis when Dalosis applied for a $110,000 loan to set up a podiatry practice on Long Island. 


Arnold Diaz and Dr. Bill Dalosis


“He told me the loan would close in 7-10 days," Dalosis said. He says Kline strung him along for more than a month, at which point Dalosis demanded a refund of the $2,350. Kline agreed and promised the refund with a week, but it never came. That’s when Dalosis contacted PIX11. WPIX's Arnold Diaz confronted Kline who said he would give Dalosis a refund and, sure enough, a certified check for $2,350 was delivered three days later. Click here to view full story.

Loss of Community Hospital Will Affect Welfare of the Community: AL Podiatrist


Elmore Community Hospital sits on a ridge just outside downtown Wetumpka. Sliding glass doors lead to a small entryway that sat empty on a recent Friday, except for two hospital volunteers in maroon vests. The hospital, which is licensed for almost 60 beds, usually fills fewer than 10 of them with patients who need overnight care. Like many rural hospitals - it has struggled financially as profit margins shrink and disappear.


Dr. Tommy Garnett


For Dr. Tommy Garnett, a podiatrist preparing for surgery, the loss of rural hospitals such as the one in Elmore County could profoundly affect the welfare of the community. "This hospital is life-saving," he said. "Rural hospitals, basically it's the intake for the healthcare system."

New House a "Christmas Miracle" for PA Podiatrist


Homeowner Dr. Susan Gamble likes to think of her freshly painted yellow bungalow in Collingswood as her “Christmas miracle.” With time running out, Gamble hurriedly closed the deal for the house and moved in a week ago, just hours after she sold her home in nearby Haddon Township. A few days earlier, it had appeared that needed last-minute repairs on her new home could put the sale in jeopardy.

Gamble, chief of podiatry at the VA Hospital in Philadelphia became the first to acquire a home in Collingswood under a program launched in February by the borough to fix up abandoned properties that have become eyesores in the South Jersey community. At least 40 properties have been targeted for renovations and put up for sale at market value. “I love it. I’m very happy,” Gamble said standing on the sidewalk in front of her house .

MN Podiatrist Skates Between Bedside and Rink-side


Dr. Gregory Rouw bucked tradition when he was about 15 and performed to Pink Floyd's "Time" — on the ice. It was a men's singles routine, and Pink Floyd was not in the usual music repertoire for figure skaters. "My coach didn't want me to skate to it," Rouw said. "It was not OK to skate to current music back then." Now 52, Rouw is a judge for U.S. Figure Skating. And performers are looser with music and costumes.


Dr. Gregory Rouw


This week he's an alternate judge for the 2018 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships in San Jose, California. The national competition from Dec. 29-Jan. 7 will feed athletes to the February Winter Olympics in South Korea. Most days Roux puts on scrubs rather than ice skates for work as a podiatrist at Central Minnesota Foot and Ankle, which he owns with his wife, Dr. Karen Rouw.

After Shooting Down Kamikazes in WWII, NY Podiatrist Soared as Foot Doctor


Dr. Sherwood Sarles remembers walking out of a downtown Buffalo movie theater into the drama of World War II. Following boot camp at Sampson Naval Training Station on Seneca Lake, he hopped a train to the West Coast and boarded the USS Minneapolis, a heavily armed cruiser. A loader on a 40 mm quad anti-aircraft gun, Sarles said they fired aerial barrages to knock down the Kamikaze planes that sought to sink U.S. warships.


Dr. Sherwood Sarles in WWII


When he returned to civilian life, he was ready to embrace education. His three older brothers were podiatric physicians and he followed in their footsteps. Sarles' first office was in Riverside. "By accident, I ended up running one of the largest podiatry practices in Western New York. I became the unofficial union podiatrist to the UAW, the Buffalo PBA, United Steelworkers, and the locals of many other national unions," Sarles said. Sarles, 92, retired in 1991 and now splits his time between Amherst and Florida.

NY Podiatrist Lives and Practices in the "Land the City Forgot"


Two Bridges, by the East River in Manhattan, may be tiny. But massive developments often seem to wash up there. This middle-class area, which has never really had its turn as a fashionable neighborhood, could seem like a land the City forgot.

“It felt very isolated,” said Dr. Audrey Abatemarco, a podiatrist who grew up in Knickerbocker Village and, after stints on Staten Island and the Upper West Side, moved back to the complex in the early 1990s. “And yet, it was a neighborhood where people looked after you,” said Dr. Abatemarco, who rents a one-bedroom and also has an office in the complex.
