Doctor Diagnosis Atlanta GA

Nail fungus is an infection under your toenails or fingernails. It can be both painful and embarrassing. If you have this type of fungus, your nail will change color or get thicker or crack. It also may cause you some pain.  Feet are more likely to develop toenail fungus. It typically grows in warm and damp environments.

As the temperatures start to warm in Atlanta, you most likely are wanting to expose your toes more often by wearing sandals or flip-flops. A visit to a nail salon is a typical spring ritual to get your toenails painted and pedicured. Nail salons can be a place where this type of fungus is spread. If the tools used or not appropriately sanitized, nail fungus can be spread from client to client.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends, “When visiting a nail salon, choose a salon that is clean and licensed by your state’s cosmetology board. Make sure the salon sterilizes its instruments (nail clippers, scissors, etc.) after each use, or, you can bring your own.” You can read more about the prevention of toenail fungus by the CDC here.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.
Jeffery D.
Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
