Christina S. Long, DPM

Medical Degree: Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science

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.

The doctor was very good, but this was the first time that I had seen the doctor. I will see her again in September .

7/28/2015

The doctor gave me instructions for cleaning my wound - soak it in a mixture of Betadine and water. However, she did not tell me the ratio of betadine to water. I tried to call the office and get the info post-visit but that didn't work out (see prior comments in this survey).

7/25/2015

she is a wonderful doctor I would recommend her to anyone

7/22/2015

Keep up the good work.

Kind & competent & good humored *Dr. Long is excellent - she has treated me and my husband & we both respect her medical ability.

5/28/2015

This has been a new experience for me...but at my age, bodies are changing...the time and effort shown was much appreciated.

5/27/2015

I don't feel like Dr. Long really listened. I felt like the visit was very rushed. She consistently acted like she was in a hurry, and I was her first appointment. Dr. Long really didn't act like my questions were really important and I felt like she was just trying to get me in and out.

5/24/2015

Good

5/16/2015

Don't change a thing!!!

Would recommend any family or friend to Dr. Long and our Davie accommodations

4/21/2015

Loved Dr. Long she is very good at her job. When I had surgery she came to see me before the surgery and also afterwards. This really impressed me!!!

Bad experience, did absolutely nothing for my problems, my feet, or my toe nails.

12/12/2014

I am very pleased and satisfied with *Dr. Sigur and the people that work with her.

I actually was taken to exam room by the doctor who then cared for me well.

11/4/2014

She was a very competent, caring, and thorough care provider. I quickly had good trust for her judgment and was very pleased with the entire experience. I am grateful.

11/3/2014

I've already recommended this provider and I know I will again!

11/3/2014

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.
