A specialist in reconstructive foot surgery, Dr. Alexander Fish treats many local athletes and ballet dancers, but he also does a thorough medical pedicure. Don’t expect a spa experience or any sort of pampering; Fish believes in the overall health of the foot, not quick aesthetic fixes like prescribing bleaching cream to whiten yellow-stained nails. He gets down to business by using herbal medications to treat foot fungus and different sterile electronic gizmos to slough off every piece of dead skin, then buffs the thickest nails to smooth perfection ($250 for the first visit; $150 thereafter).
