Dr. Mary M. DiSomma, P.D.M.
How long have you been in business?
I've been practicing podiatry for 14 years after finishing school form the William Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine.
What is your greatest business challenge?
It's a challenge to stay abreast of the constant podiatric advances and incorporating these state of the art enhancements into my podiatric practice.
What do you loveabout your business?
I love helping all people feel better with healthier feet. It gives me great pleasure to help local athletes enhance their performance with foot orthotics and seeing the smiles of children walking better.
What is your business philosophy?
I provide the best podiatry care possible to the community. From the very young patients to the retired, my office with warm and friendly staff offers both conservative and surgical foot care options.
What has been your greatest success to date?
The best feeling for a podiatrist is to prevent diabetic amputations by providing routine diabetic foot care.
What have you learned most from your business?
I feel that the more you put into your profession, you get the best end result. I work very hard to be the best foot doctor for my patients.
