GARY PRANT, DPM
“When I was 12 years old, a family friend who was a podiatrist made me orthotics that made a major difference in the way my feet felt. That started me thinking about this field – where you can make a positive difference in someone’s life very quickly and often quite easily. I enjoy being able to use high technology such as the Mini-C-arm video X-ray machine, diagnostic ultrasound and lasers. I think it is incredibly cool to use my skill with modern tools to solve age-old problems such as fungus toenails.
“I like spending time with my patients, giving them plenty of time to explain their problems without me interrupting. I am an active listener, and I believe that a patient will reveal the answer to their problem if you listen carefully. I believe that many foot problems are caused by mechanical issues involving the interface between foot biomechanics and shoe mechanics. I consider each person’s lifestyle, work and other activities very important to their selection of shoegear.
“I hope to give my patients not just immediate relief from their foot problems but rather a long-term strategy to avoid problems in the future. Every day I see patients with problems that have been difficult to diagnose, and I am able to identify those problems and resolve them.”
In his free time, Dr. Prant enjoys amateur radio and spending time with his dogs in the leash-free dog park. The community of people and pets at the dog park has been an abiding interest of his for the past few years, and he has served as chairperson of his local dog park and representative to the city parks commission. He has been active in amateur radio for many years and enjoys using high technology to communicate with people all over the world.
