Question: What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist?
Answer: I was definitely interested in the area - lots of fun things to do around Winston-Salem and in North Carolina/Virginia. Also, I was attracted by the strong healthcare community that Wake Forest Baptist provides. The people are so friendly both in the community and within Wake Forest Baptist Health.
Q: What are your clinical specialties?
A: I specialize in foot and ankle medicine and surgery. Some of the common foot/ankle problems that I see involve bunions, hammertoes, tendinitis, neuritis or neuroma issues, flat foot, lateral ankle instability, achilles tendinitis, tendon tears, fractures or dislocations, toenail/skin pathology of the foot, diabetic foot care, diabetic/vascular wound care, arthritis. The scope is very broad when dealing with the foot and ankle...
Q: Why did you decide to become a specialist in podiatry?
I see "primary care" podiatry because I like to handle a broad range of anything that comes into my office. Even if the patient does not need surgery, I work with the patient conservatively to not only help fix the problem but also to prevent pathology from occuring or getting worse. Prevention is a huge part of my practice.
Q: What is your patient care philosophy?
My philosophy is to really listen to my patients and help them maintain a healthy active lifestyle.
Q: What do you enjoy most about working with patients?
The best part of my job is simply the interaction with them, getting to know them and helping them become more active and pain-free.
Q: What type of volunteer and/or community activities are you involved in?
I like to give lectures and hold seminars or foot exams through BestHealth. I try to get involved whenever I am given the chance.
Q: What fun facts should we know about you?
I am an avid runner and outdoor enthusiast. I love to bike, hike and snowboard/ski. I love being outside and being active. I also paint and take pottery classes.

Dr Long is AWESOME!
I was recommended this podiatrist by a co-worker. Good doctor.
I adore Dr Long! I have recommended her before. I have full confidence in her, despite complications I have experienced from my surgery in the past. but I think she is a fantastic doctor and makes me feel very comfortable with my questions and my care.
I have the utmost respect for *Dr. Long. She made me feel at ease when I first met her. She gave me options of what type of surgery she could do to help my foot and was willing to discuss all this with my family so we all could help made a decision. *Dr. Long is very patient doctor.
Dr. Long is an exceptional doctor.
I simply adore Dr. Christina Long because she's the best Podiatrist I've ever seen. She's very professional, as well as extremely nice & detailed in each examination!
Very prompt and friendly services.
Provider enters room and goes directly to computer. Not much interaction with patient. Guess this is the new way in the medical profession.
I was made to feel very comfortable.
This provider was great to me. I highly recommend her to anyone.
I walked in with a limp and left without one.
Dr Long went the extra mile and exceeded my expectations. She was very caring and took extra steps to help me.
Great provider! She spent a lot of time explaining my condition to me.
She is the best!
I am truly satisfied with the professional service Dr Long has provided. I would recommend her services to everyone!
Provider did not seem to want to go into much detail. I felt like all information was very surface level. Diabetes education recommended a podiatrist on my care team, but unless things drastically change I can get this level of care from a primary care physician.
