Dr. Shara sums up her philosophy of patient care in two major points:

1. treat patients as a family member. The       
    question I ask myself, "Would I use this             method of treatment on my mother, father,
    brother... ?"

2. educate patients about medical foot
    health so that patients can become
    involved in their own Podiatric Medical
    treatment plan.
