LifeStyle Podiatry is a root cause practice that goes beyond curing foot and postural complaints. We use evidence based interventions with little interruption to your current training and lifestyle habits relying on foot surgery only as a last resort.

Giving Our Community Something to Smile About

We Provide Care for All Ages/All Feet

At LifeStyle Podiatry, we treat feet no matter what the age, health state, weight or level of physical limitations. Genetically, we inherit a functional foot type (FFT) that predictably collapses/deforms our feet and posture in specific, treatable locations of the foot at an early age.

Personalized Treatment Plans

Our mission at LifeStyle Podiatry is to equip every client with power over pedal stability, support, strength, symmetry and balance on a case by case basis.

We Welcome Limp-ins & Emergencies

At LifeStyle Podiatry, we see a maximum of 15 patients a day. This leaves time for a complete evaluation and treatment of walk-ins, as well as for those who have a race, an event, a sport or occupational needs on an emergency basis.

Available Finance and Payment Options

We will work with you to ensure that you get the treatment you deserve. Call (212) 343-3668 to discuss with the staff.

Available to Answer Your Questions

Our professional staff is expert when it comes to answering questions by phone, email or in person whether you are someone challenged with a complicated complaint or performance.

See What Our Happy Patients are Saying

Dr. Shavelson is amazing!!! I came to him after injuring a tendon in my foot that runs up the inside of my calf. I had no idea what it was - my ankle was swollen and I limped around for a few days before find Dr. Shavelson on ZocDoc. From the moment I met him, I felt like I knew him my whole life.

Selena C. review stars

Dr. Shavelson gave me advice on how to handle a juvenile bunion. Although I will most probably need surgery he did not pressure me into getting the procedure done quickly, and instead went through measures I could take to fix it slightly and prevent the bunion from getting worse, and to correct the mechanics underlying it so that if/when I do have surgery, I will be more likely to make a permanent recovery.

Anon. review stars

I had such a great experience with Dr. Shavelson. He took so much time to investigate my condition and personable and helpful. I'm very relieved to have found such practice.

H. H. review stars

Absolutely fantastic doctor. Quickly recognized my ankle problem wasn't in fact any ankle problem but a high foot problem. Prepped himself before our meeting based on what info I gave him. Very professional, highly recommend.

J. F. review stars

Dr. Shavelson was very kind, knowledgeable and helpful. He went above and beyond to educate me about the root cause of my issue instead of just giving me a quick solution. I would highly recommend seeing him!
