2017 Practice Focus

Practice update as of January 1, 2017

I am very excited to announce the merger of Dr. Emanual Sergi’s practice with City Footcare. Starting immediately, Dr. Sergi and I have decided to partner and combine our practices.

Dr. Sergi and I share very similar practice philosophy and skills. Dr. Sergi is the only podiatrist in NYC that I would consider partnering with. He possesses excellent ethics and compassion. He is equally skilled as I am in the operating room and one of the best foot surgeons in NYC. His bedside manner is superb and he relates to patients well.

Dr. Sergi will take on the lead role in managing the day to day operations of City Footcare and the lead role in patient care. I will still be present every day and present at every surgery. Our combined efforts will bring even more great patient care and superior surgery skills to City Footcare.

Please welcome Dr. Sergi to City Footcare just like I and the rest of our staff and doctors have.


Practice update as of January 1, 2016

The following notice applies to Dr. Silverberg only and does not apply to Drs. Shastri, Lupoli, Akkerman and Shtarkman.

Re: Insurances accepted, office consultations, surgery, scheduling.

To my valued patients, existing and future:

As of 2016 we will be implementing the following changes for Dr. Lawrence Silverberg. The other doctors of City Footcare will continue practice as status quo.


Effective January 1, 2016, Dr. Silverberg will only see patients that require surgery and select complex office visit reasons. He will see pre-operative and post-operative patients on Monday and Wednesday and will be performing Surgery on Fridays mostly and some Tuesdays and Thursdays.


I have instructed my staff to only schedule surgery patients for me. If you are not sure if you need surgery, or if you think your problem is complex, my staff will schedule you for a joint consolation with myself and one of my partner doctors. As always, I will continue to make myself available to co-manage any patient along with my partner doctors. I will be available Monday – Friday (whenever not in surgery)  in the office to see select patients with my partner doctors.


We will continue to accept insurance payments for surgery performed by Dr. Silverberg. Dr. Silverberg will discuss if there are any out of pocket costs prior to booking any surgery.


Dr. Lawrence Silverberg
