As a podiatrist at UR Medicine, I specialize in treating people who have a wide range of issues. Some are orthopaedic such as flat feet deformities, hammertoes or bunions. I also treat diabetic foot care ulcers and infections. I also provide relief skin conditions. lower extremity ulcerations and infections. These conditions are often complicated by diabetes, kidney disease, peripheral arterial disease, or a foot deformity. If a patient requires surgery, I have expertise in performing reconstructive foot procedures, such as tendon balancing, bone fusions, osteotomies, and functional amputations. For these patients, I always explore nonsurgical care before proceeding with any type of surgical treatment.

When someone has a problem with a foot or an ankle, it keeps them from functioning as they normally would. They cannot stand or walk easily. My special interest is surgery and being able to correct those issues and allowing patients to walk better and pain-free.

I make myself available to my patients whenever they might need me. Whether it’s surgery or non-surgical treatment, I have their best interests at heart. My goal as a podiatrist is to get patients back to do what they love to do.

I was having discomfort just wearing my shoes and knew that I needed to see a foot doctor. Dr. Habib is the most caring doctor and I'm so fortunate to have him taking care of my toenails. He is kind and so knowledgeable in solving issues with feet problems. Instead of feeling dread when I have an appointment with him, I'm actually looking forward to my appointments because I know when I leave his office I will have happy feet !!! Thank you Dr. Habib for your care and concern!

I did not think that the physician seemed particularly concerned about or interested in my injury. He seemed to just be going through the motions, with no personal interest or warmth.

The doctor performed a small surgical procedure and appeared very professional, but was quite aloof and uncommunicative. He didn't even introduce himself when he came in the room. I had to look up his procedure note on MyChart when I got home, so I could understand his discharge instructions.

I appreciate Dr. Habib so much for covering my appointment from Dr. Hernandez. Due to an emergency she couldn't take this week of appts I believe? And he covered all over appts so we didn't have to change them. That's incredible. At the same time, I still never once felt rushed during my appt. He took his time to listen to my history, any concerns or questions and even ease worries I had. Really wonderful doctor, I feel lucky to be part of an office with two great doctors that I feel comfortable with in case one needs to cover for the other.

He told me there was nothing he could do; my issues were for life when in fact he finally said I should see another provider who would be appropriate.
