As Bette Midler sings “You gotta have friends”. In my case, this blog would not be possible without the contribution of my friend and Financial District Foot & Ankle Center (www.fdfac.com) colleague – Samantha Gibson, BSc (Hons). In addition to being a podiatrist, Sam acts as my sounding board, assistant problem solver and Shoes on the Brain expert extraordinaire. She not only makes patient care fun, but shoe sleuthing as well. Thanks Sam. Your help is greatly appreciated.
