The biggest challenges to the practice of podiatry change from time to time. For a long time, it was orthopods. They quieted down when we all faced the new challenges of governmental regulations and insurance companies. None of these issues was as difficult to me as the office dress code.

   When I started practice in 1975, most of my staff wore white dresses from nursing uniform shops. I did not need an official dress code. I only asked that the dresses be modest with no plunging necklines. Everybody complied without complaint.
