Chelsea Foot & Ankle

The Full-Service,
Boutique Podiatry Practice
With the Human Touch in New York City


When Dr. Ciment opened the practice in 2004, he wanted to do things differently.

“When the practice opened in 2004, we knew we wanted to do things differently. Not only would our podiatry procedures be advanced, safe, and effective, but our interaction with our patients would be built on connection and caring — more intimate, individualized, and down-to-earth.”

About Us

The Whole Body Approach

Although we are foot and ankle specialists, it is essential to understand our patients’ lifestyle, medical challenges, and overall health and fitness goals. The more we know about our patients, the better we can care for them.

We do it all but do not believe
in one-size-fits-all medicine.

We treat the entire spectrum of foot and ankle medicine and surgery, from common skin and nail disorders, to trauma, sports injuries, diabetic foot care, and reconstructive foot and ankle surgery.

Our Patients Love Us

No waiting.
No rushing.
No short-cuts.

Time is an essential component to achieving extraordinary care. Many of our consultations last 45 minutes or more. We schedule fewer appointments in a day so there is no hurrying or short-changing our patients.

“When you come to Chelsea Foot and Ankle, our doctors take care of you from start to finish. We do everything ourselves.”

“From bringing you into the consultation room, taking your history, and doing any imaging or procedures, we never use nurses or medical assistants. Our doctors stay with our patients for the entirety of the visit, each and every time.”
