Dr. Charles T. Wallack has been successfully caring for patients in the Lincoln Park area for close to 30 years, including providing foot care for the Lincoln Park Health Department Podiatry clinic. He is dedicated to providing gentle, compassionate, individualized care to patients of all ages. He is experienced in treating all phases of foot and ankle problems with a focus on biomechanics– the normal and abnormal functioning of the foot, which can affect the entire lower extremity and lower back. Rather than treating only the painful results of poor foot function, he believes in correcting the cause of the problem and restoring normal foot function as well as providing immediate relief of painful symptoms. He utilizes the most up to date proven technologies to achieve this level of care.

Dr. Wallack is a Fellow of the American Professional Wound Care Association and is skilled in treating all phases of diabetic foot problems, including the dispensing of shoes as part of the Medicare diabetic shoe program. He is board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and was an attending physician in the Lyons VAMC Podiatry Residency Program, helping recent graduates prepare to enter the practice of podiatric medicine and surgery.
