We are grateful that you have chosen our office for your foot care needs and we will do our best to provide you with the highest quality care in a warm and friendly environment. Your foot condition will be explained in detail and you will be given treatment options so you can decide what is best for you.

Our practice is dedicated to providing quality foot and ankle care to patients of all ages. We believe that prompt diagnosis, early intervention, and prevention are essential for the care and treatment of your feet. We provide a full range of podiatric medical care including both conservative and surgical therapies. Dr. Schmirer has been in practice in Park Slope for over 30 years, and since his retirement, he passed Park Slope Podiatry to the esteemed Dr. Michael Nagelberg. They place their confidence in him because our practice strives to provide superior foot and ankle care to our patients. We work closely with our referring doctors to ensure the most effective and safe treatment plan.

We specialize in numerous areas of podiatric medicine including diabetic foot care and education, sports injuries, fracture care, nail conditions, heel and arch pain, bunion and hammer toes, orthotics and diabetic shoes. We spend quality time with each patient to better understand their foot care needs and to recommend the best course of treatment. We are happy to help with any foot problem, big or small. Appointments are often made within 24-48 hours of your request and we do our best to see emergencies the same day. If you are experiencing foot or ankle pain we welcome you to our office.

Letter of Retirement from Dr. Schmirer

July 2015

To my patients,

After 38 years in the practice of podiatry in Park Slope, I have made the difficult decision to retire. It has been a great pleasure to serve our community and I hope the feeling is mutual. I appreciate the trust you have had in me all of these years and I value the confidence you have placed in me. The good news is that my associate of three years, Dr. Michael Nagelberg, will be assuming my podiatry practice on a full-time basis. I have the utmost confidence in his ability, his medical judgment and his capacity to take care of my patients and to treat them with respect. I know that he will treat you properly. He is a former chief podiatry resident at New York Methodist Hospital and is extremely well trained in all aspects of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery. I will also be available to Dr. Nagelberg for advice and consultation over the next few months. In closing, I wish everyone well and again thank you for allowing me to be your podiatrist.

Sincerely yours,
Herbert C Schmirer, DPM
