Dr. Barry Herstik, DPM
Dr. Barry Herstik has been providing care to people of all ages with various foot problems for over 20 years.
Dr. Herstik was born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y. After graduating from South Shore High School, he attended Binghamton University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in biology. He did his graduate work at the William M. Scholl College of Podiatry in Chicago, Illinois, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Next, Dr. Herstik completed a two-year residency at Kern Hospital for Special Surgery in Warren, Michigan. During residency, he mastered his skills as a specialist in a variety of foot ailments, concentrating on foot surgery and diabetic foot care.
Dr. Herstik’s parents were teachers, instilling in him an innate desire and ability to educate his patients about their foot problems. By combining his medical knowledge and expertise with each patient's newfound understanding of their condition, he has achieved an unprecedented success rate.
Aside from podiatry, his wife and two sons, Zachary and Joshua, are his greatest treasure. The walls of Dr. Herstik's office are adorned with photographs of some of his previous travels, but the pictures of his two
sons are slowly taking over. Patients get a great sense of how the boys are growing as the photos are
"Podiatry was my chosen path because it affords me the opportunity to help
people. I am blessed with the ability to be a doctor, a healer, and, therefore, an
integral part of the community. Most of my patients come to me in pain, but I
feel confident I can help rid them of that pain. By treating their various ailments,
my goal is always that they leave my care healthy, ultimately teaching them
about their feet." Dr. Barry Herstik
