Dr. Bill Releford has been a godsend for me. I first visited in November 2017 with a blister that had turned into a would on my left foot. In the 6 months since my first visit, Dr. Releford has made me realize that my health is the #1 PRIORITY. He literally has saved my toe from possible amputation and has also educated me about other diabetic complications I could potentially be subjected to if I didn't take it seriously. The most important aspect of his treatment was the "real talk". His direct comments resonated with me and I'm sure others could benefit. Since my initial visit last November, my blood sugar and A1C are under control, and I must continue to be diligent in my fight. Thank you, Dr. Releford. Your care and guidance are appreciated.
Dr. Releford is so amazing! I came in to see doc because I had knee pain (patellar tendon). When I walked out from my visit my knee felt 90% better. As the days went on I was able to jump and run without any pain! Doc has been a blessing in my life and I am so very thankful for him!
I took my mom for her initial visit with Dr. Releford and he did an amazing job. My mom's feet looked brand new! The office is very clean and the staff from the time I entered the door was very courteous and helpful and very attentive. I look forward to bringing her to her future appointments. I totally recommend Dr. Releford if you need an awesome podiatrist.
I am so thankful for the expertise of Dr. Bill! As a true & knowledgeable Foot & Vein specialist. He has special treatments for a problem I've had for many years. As a professional Brazilian dancer for over 45 years, I had developed broken veins that looked like roadmaps! In 6 weeks, I feel I can uncover my legs and not feel embarrassed in a dressing room or the beach. My total leg pains have diminished! I'm STILL dancing! I look forward to more results & treatments! All professional Dancers this is the doctor you want.
Dr. Releford healed my wound when other doctors wanted to amputate my leg. It came back again and he was able to heal it again. I highly recommend Dr. Releford to anyone that has been recommended for amputation. Dr. Releford used stem cells and platelet rich plasma to get the job done. Riley
Dr. Bill Releford's Treatment for Painful Achilles Tendinitis Effective
Also known as tendonosis, tendinitis, or Achilles tendinopathy, Achilles Tendinitis is a condition that occurs when the Achilles tendons, which connects the calf muscles located in the lower leg to the heel bone becomes inflamed causing excruciating pain and swelling. When muscles contracts, the tendon usually transmits the contraction power to the heel enabling movement. The Achilles tendons usually move via a protective sheath and it is made up of millions of tiny fibers. Scientific studies have found out that Achilles Tendinitis usually develops when there is overuse of tendons, which makes the tiny fibers in the tendon to wear and tear. This causes pain, inflammation, and swelling.
Platelet Rich Plasma Should Be Considered to Manage Pain Diabetic Neuropathy
Diabetes can create a number of complications that can negatively affect the quality of life. Diabetic neuropathy is perhaps one of the early signs that the disease is not being managed well. About 50% of people suffering from diabetes have diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic neuropathy is a nerve disorder that is accelerated by elevated blood sugars over an extended period of time. Diabetics of at least 10 years have high chances of suffering from diabetic neuropathy. In addition to elevated blood sugars, high blood pressure and high cholesterol seem to be responsible for advancing diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

What is foot fungus?
Fungus is a commonly found organism that can easily grow anywhere with a bit of moisture. Therefore, when our feet are exposed to humid conditions, there is a good chance for development of fungus. Commonly foot fungus only develops on toenails or between the toes but may develop on other areas in few cases.
