New Patients

Hi! We’re glad you found our website! I’m Harvey Danciger, DPM, and I’m a foot doctor based in Palm Desert, CA serving patients throughout the Coachella Valley region. If your feet or ankles hurt, if others have told you that they don’t know what’s wrong or their treatments haven’t worked, you’ve come to the right place.

Foot and ankle pain is common, but it isn’t normal. Your feet were designed to last you a lifetime, and they should—and can—stay healthy and fit at any age. Too many people suffer unnecessarily with discomfort, deformity, and lack of mobility that prevents them from accomplishing their daily tasks or enjoying active lifestyles. With a wide range of treatments available, from time-tested conservative measures, to surgery, to emerging technologies like laser therapy, we can help.

We’re especially proud of our specialty areas in the treatment of heel pain, neuropathy and nerve issues, fungal toenails, and bunions, but we regularly see and treat a full range of foot and ankle conditions. For an overview of just some of the many, see the following link:
