Essex Podiatry Associates was founded in 1977 by Dr. Neil E. Goldberg and Dr. Jeffrey N. Kaplan.

Both doctors are graduates of the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine, which is now part of Temple University. We opened our practice following residencies at Moss Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia. At Moss, we were in the service of vascular surgeons where we were specifically trained in the podiatric care of diabetics and patients with peripheral vascular disease, which is our sub-specialty today.

Essex Podiatry Associates cares for many foot problems including bunions, hammertoes, corns, calluses, warts, ingrown toenails, heel pain, and more. Our philosophy has always been a conservative approach, exploring all non-invasive treatments and recommending surgery only as a last resort.

Most recently, we implemented specialized light therapy for the care of onychomycosis.

“In the evolution of my career, what has been a constant is my interest in my patients as individuals. It has amazed me what you can learn about someone in a very brief period of time when you are holding their feet in your hands. This personal interaction greatly enhances my ability to determine what best I can do in the context of my profession to improve their physical well-being. The personalization of my practice necessitates that I provide different skills and approaches when presented with a child with a flat foot versus an older individual with painful rheumatoid arthritis or a diabetic with nerve pain or a factory worker with heel pain or a young woman whose toenails have developed a fungus. In this context I have sought to develop therapeutic options that incorporate a variety of technologically advanced procedures and materials. What I seek to provide in the treatment of the most basic or complex foot concerns is a non surgical approach. This may run the gamut from new types of cold laser to nanotechnology to unique shock absorbing materials. My patients deserve the best of what I can provide and I look forward to meeting the challenges and opportunities presented to me. I look forward to meeting with you.”
