No Insurance? No Problem!

Some don't think they can get the services they need because they don't have insurance. What they don't realize is that sometimes using insurance is just as expensive if not more. Because we are part of Free Market Healthcare you can be assured you are paying less every time. 

Inclusive Services

Most doctors nickel and dime you for their services. At our practice, we believe in providing value to our patients. one of the ways we do this is by offering free X-rays.


Our philosophy is that each and every patient should be treated the way we treat family. That means we don't just rush you out the door, we spend the time needed to get you back on your feet.

We invest in high-end, state-of-the-art equipment in order to provide our patients with the best quality of care.  We take pride in having state-of-the-art technology which allows Dr. Costello to provide the best podiatric services to his patients.
