"We take pride in our employees", Dr. Lawrence Karlock points out, "and our doctors all have the benefit of advanced podiatric surgical residency programs, including wound care fellowships." The staff of professionals at Austintown Podiatry Associates all embrace new and improved techniques that allow patients to obtain relief from foot and ankle discomfort, and return to an active life in a shorter period of time. Keeping patients at ease during the time of the office visit is an important element in providing the best care, and that responsibility is eagerly undertaken by the capable front secretarial staff as well as the medical assistants. The practice also provides in-office minor surgical procedures, including non-invasive Shockwave procedures for patients with chronic heel pain. Dr. Karlock says, "We also provide state-of-the-art surgical procedures at the Surgery Center of Canfield and all local hospitals and surgery centers."
