Nail Fungal Infection Treatments in Shirley & Ronkonkoma
Fungal infection of the toenails (also called onychomycosis) occurs when a fungus infects the tissue underneath the toenail. The result is discoloration of the nail. Often the nail becomes thickened and raised. It commonly involves several nails simultaneously. It often occurs in people with persistent moisture in their feet, such as with footwear that does not allow air circulation or in those who perspire excessively in their feet.
The diagnosis of fungal infection of a toenail can be made based on the appearance of the toe.
In some cases a sample may be obtained, to look for fungus under a microscope or to grow and identify the fungus in a laboratory.
The treatment for fungal nail infections usually involves an antifungal antibiotic. Oral antibiotics are generally required to treat the fungus while new nail grows in. The medication needs to be taken for several weeks to months while a new, healthy nail grows in. Antifungal medications applied to the surface of the nail are not usually effective. In other cases, the infected nail is removed.
The nails can become very thickened, discolored and unsightly. In some cases, pain or infection can result from very thickened nails.

Patient Testimonial by Shaheed R
The staff was very friendly and efficient. Dr. Taormino was straight forward, and very knowledgeable. I’ve been going to podiatrists for the past 20 years and after one visit here, he has already done more than any other.

Patient Testimonial by Gary U
I was made to feel very comfortable as a first time patient at the Shirley office. The staff was efficient and friendly. After visiting another podiatrist for a number of years, I was pleasantly surprised at the level of care Dr. Taormino provided. The service and procedure provided was outstanding and unlike and of my previous experiences at the other podiatrist's office. In summary, if you are in need of a podiatrist, I would highly recommend quality foot care and Dr. Taormino's 39 years of experience.

It’s a small and friendly practice but very nice! I’m definitely coming back if I need! (And considering I’m a young adult, we never write reviews. So this place was so good I actually took the time to write a review lol)

Patient Testimonial by Emily M
Dr. Taormina was patient and understanding. It is very easy to tell that he still enjoys what he's doing, and that means a lot to me as a patient. He didn't force me to do anything I didn't want, and it seemed like he took extra time. I had seen another foot doctor for this condition and she didn't treat me half as well as Dr. Taormina! I am very pleased with the quality of care and level of service he provided.
