    My husband hurt his foot and is looking for a podiatrist asap (he is a big runner and is going CRAZY). Any suggestions in the area would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    My husband, a runner, sees Dr. George Lane who has an office in Reston. Here is link to his practice's website: http://www.footdoctorva.com/

    Dr. Lane is also a runner, a Broadlands resident too, and sees a lot of the runners in the area.

    I myself see Dr. Stephen Pribut in Washington DC. He also is a runner. Here is his website: http://www.drpribut.com/sports/sportframe.html

    Good luck.

    Just saw an Ad in "Ashburn Today" for "Bio Mechanic Physical Therapy" at Lansdowne. They treat all kinds of foot and ankle problems and they offer free screening.

    Has anyone seen a doctor/podiatrist for plantar fasciitis recently? Anyone you can recommend in the Ashburn / Lansdowne / Sterling area. Thanks.
