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.

We were very pleased with our Doctor. The one thing that especially surprised me was she kneeled down onto the floor to speak to my daughter, who was the patient. She made my daughter feel safe and that she could open up to her. I was very pleased with her demeanor, very impressed.
Staff was outstanding.
this was my first visit...great facility and the staff couldn't have been more attentive
Again, I was quite pleased with this doctor. I would probably give her higher ratings if this were not my first appointment with her.
dr long was great she was very knowledgeable and personable. I appreciated her care as well
I verbalized a concern and felt the doctor did not thoroughly assess my issue.
Dr. Long is one of the best
It seems doctors do need to get through the exam and discussion time quickly, which I understand, but for someone like me that needs a bit of time to process before I can form meaningful questions, the "email your doctor for non emergency questions" is more than a convenience. When I did have a question, the provider was extremely fast in answering and even replied twice to assure clarity. This is a huge plus.
Very good experience.No complaints at all. Left facility feeling no pain in toe and happy that WFBH continues to have great people working there. I think all the facilities are very good. I trained as nurse at BH and worked there 35 years. Yes, I am partial but I have answered with the truth.
Very professional & caring.
Dr. Long was very caring from my first visit. She immediately was able to pinpoint my problem and confidently assess the solution to relieve the pain.
Dr. Long is very patient, caring, and friendly. She encompasses the hospital values at ALL times. I absolutely LOVE having her as one of my providers.
Not very personable.
Already recommended Dr. Long to friends and neighbors.
