Elizabeth Piselli, D.P.M.

dr-elizabethDr. Elizabeth Piselli is a graduate of the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. A committed athlete, Liz started her lacrosse career locally in Rockville Centre. A South Side Cyclone through and through, Piselli was inducted into their athletic Hall of Fame 2009. She continued her career on the US U-19 team and then traveled across the country as a four year letter winner at Stanford University.

Dr. Piselli is from a long lineage of athletes which is what sparked her interest in podiatry. Her brother had debilitating foot pain while playing peewee football and after several trips to different orthopedics, it was finally the podiatrist who got him playing again (he would then go on to Quarterback at Cornell). Later at Stanford, she would see teammate after teammate sit out of games and training secondary to different foot maladies. That solidified her decision to use podiatry as a means to help athletes get back to doing what they loved.

Now, she is excited to be back home, getting Long Islanders back on their feet. When not working, she enjoys traveling, quoting movies, running 5K’s and finding her balance with yoga.
