Get to Know Schneck’s Newest Podiatrist Dr. Wendy Goldstein
July 08, 2019
Dr. Goldstein is a podiatrist and joins Schneck Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. She received her medical degree from Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine in Independence, Ohio and completed her residency at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis.
 
Where did you grow up? My hometown is Owensboro, Kentucky, but I grew up in Louisville.
 
Please tell us about your family. I met my husband in Pittsburgh when I was in undergraduate school. We dated for ten years and recently got married. No children yet, but we do have two fur babies!
 
What hobbies do you enjoy? I like to take and develop my own photographs. I played lacrosse in high school and still play it for fun. I love watching new and old movies. I like enjoying the weather when it’s nice by hiking and bicycling.
 
Where would you most like to visit? I love to travel and go on adventures. I would pick Greece; it looks so beautiful in pictures.
 
When did you know you wanted to be a physician? I always wanted to be in the science field when I was young; exploring and dissecting things. I knew I wanted to be a doctor after taking my first anatomy class in high school. My father and uncle are podiatrists. I realized I wanted to go into the family business after working at a New Balance store in undergraduate for a few years. I was sold when I saw the difference a proper pair of shoes could make. Podiatry runs in my family and I like to make the joke “I’m following in my father’s footsteps…. literally.”
 
What was your favorite part of Residency? Being chief my last year of residency was the most rewarding experience. It was really great getting to see a different side of podiatry, organizing events for my fellow residents and community, and taking a bigger role in my field. Being involved in the hospital and getting to participate in Special Olympics were also a plus. All of residency was amazing, even being on call because it was always a learning experience.
 
What is one of your most memorable patient stories? In podiatry, we always strive for limb salvage. There was one patient that was at risk for losing her leg and all the other services said it could not be saved. We WERE able to save her leg with wound care and surgical correction. It was so gratifying and rewarding to know I was part of the team that was able to help this woman when no other person was willing to try. She was so grateful.
 
What do you like most about practicing medicine? The patients! They make everything worth it, getting to be a small part of their lives and hearing their stories makes my job more enjoyable.
 
Why did you decide to join Schneck Medical Center? I’m so excited to be part of the community! Everyone I have met has been so warm, kind and welcoming. I was born in a small town and am excited to return to a small town.
 
Dr. Goldstein is now accepting new patients. To make an appointment, call Schneck Orthopedics & Sports Medicine at 812-524-3311.
