Meet Dr. Joseph Burke, another “Best of Long Island” Award Winner

As many of you know, we were honored this year with the “Best of Long Island Award” for best travel agency and we thank you again for your support.

Chris and I were able to meet and greet many of the other winners at a dinner to celebrate the honor.  At our display table, we offered visitors a chance to win a travel gift basket, and the lucky winner was Dr. Joseph Burke of Cherrywood Footcare Group at 2791 Jerusalem Avenue in North Bellmore.

“We’ve been in business for 27 years as the Cherrywood Foot Care Group, as we started in the Cherrywood shopping center,” Dr. Burke told us.

“Then, about five years ago, I bought a building in North Bellmore and we created a state-of-the art facility.  Soon after, we began winning the Best of Long Island award for Best Podiatry office and now it’s been four consecutive years.  We’re very thankful to our patients for helping us set this unprecedented record.”

“We treat everything from a simple issues to major reconstructive surgery of the foot, plus heel pain, diabetic foot care and more.  Today, we have four podiatrists working at the office,” Dr. Burke said.

“We are board certified in podiatric surgery, and I’m also board certified in primary podiatric medicine and orthopedics.  We have an operating room in the office where we do minor procedures, and more major surgeries are performed at two of the local hospitals, St. Josephs and North Shore at Syosset.

“It was great meeting Chris and Sheila of Korte Travel and the other Best of Long Island award winners.  You can tell that all the winner are like us, in that they really care about their businesses and clients,” Dr. Burke added.

And if you are considering a trip this year, don’t forget that you’ll probably be walking around and seeing all the sights.  If you do have any foot problems, you might want to give Dr. Burke a call before you travel at 516-826-9000.
