About Dr. James H Courniotes II

"One of my greatest accomplishments is running a successful practice for three decades. I attribute my success to one important skill. It's a skill I wasn't taught in medical school, and I didn't attain it from my esteemed professional peers or from the extensive continuing-education classes I take every year. I learned this skill from my patients. They taught me how to listen. Over the years, I've developed the art of listening to my patients and understanding how to get to the heart of the problem. My ability to listen has enabled me to help thousands of patients live healthier, more productive lives."

Advanced treatment with a personal touch.

"My mission is to provide you with foot and ankle care of the highest quality - care that helps you live your life to the fullest - always with genuine compassion I hope you'll recognize from the start."

"While I hold some of the finest credentials a podiatrist can earn, I know excellent
care takes more than that. I want you to feel well cared for in every way. That's why I always take the time to answer your questions, to really listen to you and to understand all your concerns. This helps you feel at ease with me and confident in the care you receive. It also helps me give you the most personalized care possible, and that can make all the difference in your results."

The team that's dedicated to you.

"I've worked hard to build a team of professionals who share my commitment to our patients. I believe you'll appreciate the care they show to you and your family members. We all feel that it is our privilege to help you with this aspect of your health, and we value your trust. It's the kind of treatment I feel you deserve, and I would've have it any other way."
