Individualized Foot Care
Jul 25, 2018 05:06PM
Dr. Lester Klebe is a holistically oriented podiatrist who offers complete foot and ankle care using the integration of various disciplines with conventional medical care.
Klebe’s goal is to relieve patients’ pain and make them comfortable. In doing so, care is taken to discover underlying causative factors as well as treat symptoms. He feels that his patients’ health and well-being are a joint effort between doctor and patient working together as a team. Klebe strongly believes that the individual attention he gives to each patient is a very important aspect of care.
The comfortable relationships Klebe has with his patients is reflected in his statement, “Be quiet and listen to what your patient is saying.” Along with a physical examination, each patient will help to make their diagnosis in partnership with the doctor. His approach works well with patients of all ages.
Klebe is a specialist in the use of functional orthotics. These custom devices are created from an appropriate impression cast of each of the patient's feet. They can be used in some cases as a treatment instead of surgery and are needed after surgery to stabilize the instability that initially caused or accentuated the patient's problem.
