If you suffer from foot pain, and you live in the rivertowns, local medical professional Dr. Robert Losier provides comprehensive care for all foot-related issues. A graduate of the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, Dr. Losier has been serving New Yorkers with quality foot care for the past 11 years.
Born and raised in Tarrytown, Dr. Losier always knew that he wanted to go into the medical field, but podiatry was never on his radar. “As a kid, I never heard of podiatry” said Losier. “But when I started applying to medical schools, somebody I knew asked me, ‘why don’t you apply to the New York College of Podiatric Medicine?’ I couldn’t get the idea out of my head, and the next thing I knew, I was enrolled in school and on my way.”
After four years in podiatric medical school, Dr. Losier spent three years in a residency and fellowship at the Catholic Medical Center in Queens. Upon completing his training, he became the wound care director at John’s Hospital and the medical director of hyperbaric and wound care at Cornwall Hospital. After being on multiple hospital staffs later in his career at St. Barnabas and Westchester Square, Dr. Losier decided to open up his first private office in the Bronx in 2008.
Board certified in primary podiatric medicine and having special certifications in hyperbarics and wound care, Dr. Losier is highly trained and experienced in treating numerous foot problems. “You name it, I’ve done it, the whole nine yards, I’ve done a little bit of everything” he said.
Dr Losier treats everything from diabetic foot care, trauma, wound care, heel pain, fungal infected toes, hyperbarics, stress fractures and sports injuries to surgically correcting bunions, hammertoes and ingrown toenails.
Though Dr. Losier has an extremely busy schedule treating 130 to 150 patients a week, he still gets instant satisfaction and gratification every time a patient happily walks out of his door. “That’s the most rewarding part of my job” said Dr. Losier. “I get the greatest satisfaction and feeling when somebody comes to me with pain, I provide immediate results, and they walk out with no pain. That’s what it’s all about”.
“What I also enjoy about podiatry is how it’s a specific type of care that deals with the foot and the foot only,” he added. “Everyone has two feet and because of diabetes and its association with amputations, it really makes my profession essential in helping thousands of people”.
When he is not treating patients in his offices, Dr. Losier is working out, golfing, and spending time with his wife and daughter.
Dr. Losier and his friendly staff welcome you to an office whose goal is to provide a lifetime of foot care where every patient leaves feeling better than when they came in. He accepts most insurance coverage and requires a 24 hour cancellation policy.
Dr. Losier currently has offices in Tarrytown and the Bronx. His Tarrytown office is located at 65 South Broadway. For more information, call (914) 372-7797. His Bronx office (known as Arthur Avenue Podiatry) is located at Arthur Avenue. For more information, call (347) 577-6106.
