The practice of Dr. Michael Szalach first opened in 1991.  The office is conveniently located on Union Road in the heart of West Seneca, 1/4 mile south of Route 400 (Aurora Expressway - Union Road exit and turn right/south).  Off street parking is available in our parking lot, and the office is wheel chair and walker accessible with a wheel chair ramp.  Dr. Szalach is here to professionally serve the podiatry needs of patients with foot and ankle conditions.  A variety of patients are welcome, ranging from children to seniors.  Readily accepting new patients, we can usually accommodate you to be seen within one week, many times on the same day as you call for an appointment.  Most major insurances are accepted including Medicare, Independent Health, Univera, Empire Plan, Emblem Health and Blue Cross/Blue Shield, however it is always advisable to ask if we participate with your particular insurance company.  Dr. Szalach is committed to providing quality foot care to his patients.  He always takes time to explain the patient's problem, along with how it can be treated, offer alternative treatment options, answer any patient's questions, and always makes sure the patient understands his/her problems and treatments before he/she leaves the examination room.
