Richard C. Ped nows makes Dr. Z's foot orthosis.

Posted by Dr. Zuckerman on 12/09/00 at 17:09 (034554)

I am casting all of my orthosis at this time and sending them down South to Richard for the fabrication.. After reading all of his posts you have to go with his experience and expertise. I have found in my area that most of the orthosis are made by kids that use to work in McDonald's . You can have a perfect casting and correct prescription for biomechanical orthosis but you need to have a lab that understands and make orthosis. All orthosis are made by certified peds not kids. This makes a big difference. So Richard you can eat a McDonald's hamburger just don't stop making orthosis

Thanks,

Dr. Z

I wish I lived near both of you. I live in Vermont and there is no one who makes the orthotics here. The last podiatrist I saw has orthotics for $400.00. Richard, too bad you partner who is coming to Vermont couldn't make special appointments.

Dr. Z,
I truly thank you for allowing me and my partners to work with you. I never worked a McDonald's but I did deliver pizzas about 10 years ago. I will also pass on the hamburgers. I am waiting for the pheasang under glass from Nancy S. as well as mashed potatoes from Barbara TX. :-)

My othoses were not made by a Mc Donald's employee, but by a young Hispanic teenager who answered the phone (and casted 400 dollar othoses). She kept getting the nurse and asking her to look at my foot because 'there was something weird about my foot' (my feet have appeared completely normal to all doctors I've seen). I tried to run away but I was already covered in plaster. B.

Hi Mary Ann,
I am not sure where Mike went to in Vermont. Killington comes to mind, but I am not sure. Is that anywhere near you? I will find out exactly where he is. You never know....

I live in Burlington. Killington is a ski area. I haven't been there, not sure how far away it is. If he is here now we are expecting some snow and ice tonight and then more snow.

Thank you so much. I didn't think there was one here also. I will certainly check with him.
