Hi! I'm Noah Blumofe and I'm a podiatrist. I'm a specialist in diabetes and wound care. I try to make sure that people are able to walk and run and function the best they can. Podiatrist is the only field of medicine where 95 percent of their patients who come in in pain, can walk out feeling better. I try to enjoy life myself and I try to encourage others to do as well. My wife and my three kids and I all try to go on the weekends when we can, hiking. It's a fun, exciting activity. My wife does allow me to still collect comic books. She says she can control that to a certain extent. I just got to keep them outside away from the children, I'm not allowed to share with them. I try to keep healthy and happy and I like to spend time with my kids teaching them how to sing and just being the best they can. I try to say, “If you can’t smile at least once during the day, go back to bed. Even if it's gust, just smile.”

Noah Blumofe, DPM

Podiatrist

Dr. Blumofe was born and raised in Skokie, Illinois. Later he attended the University of Illinois at Chicago and completed his undergraduate studies in 1996, receiving a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences. He then attended Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine at Rosalind Franklin University in Chicago, where he received a second Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences in 1998, and his Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine in 2001. Dr. Blumofe's residency was completed at the St. John Detroit Riverview Medical Center in Michigan, which is affiliated with the Kirkside Osteopathic Medical School. The following year he continued his post-graduate training with a two-year surgical fellowship in Long Beach, Calif. His main responsibilities included patient care, diabetic foot and wound care and surgical procedures of the foot and ankle, as well as teaching podiatric residents.

Dr. Blumofe's specialties include diabetic wound care, podiatric medicine, neuropathy, limb salvage, cosmetic foot surgery and sports medicine. He attributes his passion for helping diabetics regain and maintain a more normal life to the experience he had in seeing his mother and his grandfather deal with the realities of the condition. Often, Dr. Blumofe is known to say to his patients that "diabetes is NOT a disease, it is a lifestyle change".

When Dr Blumofe is not working (all four hours of the day that remain), he spends time helping his wife, Sandy, raise their three children Abby, Joey, and Rachel. Dr Blumofe holds a 1st degree Black Belt (ShoDan) in the Jinenkan Martial Arts (though has since retired!)
