Dr. Christina S. Long is a specialist in podiatry. Below is a brief profile about her:

Christina S. Long, DPM
Medical Plaza - Miller, 1st Floor
336-716-WAKE or 888-716-WAKE

Medical Degree: Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science
Residency: Intermountain Medical Center, Salt Lake City, Utah

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.

I am truly satisfied with the professional service Dr Long has provided. I would recommend her services to everyone!

9/20/2016

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.

9/15/2016

VERY PLEASED

9/13/2016

Dr appeared in to big of a hurry to explain my X-ray, and options for my toe. I had to pressher for information that she should have explained without my having to ask!

7/29/2016

5/25/2016

Cared for me great.

5/19/2016

The doctor was very pleasant with concern about my problem.

4/12/2016

I came to the office upon a referral from my primary care physician for pain in my foot associated with possible plantars fascitis. The best way for me to describe my visit is distant. The doctor did not necessarily do anything wrong, but she didn't seem overly invested in my issue either. When talking about the pain in my foot, I mentioned I had a cortisone injection 9 years ago. She immediately said she could do that today and that was the path taken; however, I did not feel as if she provided me other solutions for my problem other than a handout of stretches and of course the shot. Moreover, she had to pull my x-ray back up when I mentioned the issue with my bunion and arthritis between toes and casually dismissed both. The shot itself was very painful; most likely this was not her fault, but it after it was done she left abruptly despite the fact that I was in an excruciating amount of pain. Yes, I did express extreme pain during the shot. In fact, a nurse came barging into the room to make sure everything was alright. From the anxiety of the shot and pain, I was sweating and felt as if I was going to pass out, yet the doctor just told me to stay in the room as long as I needed and I could check out when ready. She didn't explain what I was to expect over the next couple of days or months and simply told me since I am familiar with my condition, I could just call with a follow up appointment if necessary. Maybe I frightened her by childish reaction to the shot, but hey, I am weak when it comes to pain. I would be willing to go back again because maybe she was just having an off day. My one request is to spend a little more time knowing a patient's issue and helping with possible solutions.

3/16/2016

very good

3/13/2016

I won't go to another PODIATRIST I've found the best.

2/9/2016

good

1/31/2016

I am a nurse and was able to discuss my issues with her on a higher level than the average patient and I consider myself more medically educated than the average patient

1/26/2016

Dr. Long is personable, caring and obviously knows her practice.

1/12/2016

Doctors was not knowledgeable about problems I was referred for.

1/2/2016

Professional and caring.

1/1/2016

I peppered her with questions - I am not sure I would have received as much crucial information if I had not been aggressive in asking her a list of questions about my current condition, treatments to continue, and expectations as to eventual outcome of my injury.
