Dear Step Lively Family,
I would like to take this opportunity to inform you that effective March 31, 2020, I retired from active practice. When I began my practice 35 years ago, I had no idea how rewarding and satisfying my Podiatry career would be. My work has taken me down many roads, and all have made me proud to be a podiatrist. Most importantly, it is you, my terrific patients, with whom I have developed very personal relationships that make me most proud. Whether we were discussing family life, golf, Blue Jackets hockey, puzzles, or politics, it was always fun and lively. I would have liked to thank each of you personally as spring turned into summer, but our current health pandemic has made that impossible. I felt it important to protect both you and me during this crisis. I am healthy and happy, so there is no reason to worry about me. This is a voluntary choice I have made.
Moving forward, I would invite each and every one of you to continue your membership in the Step Lively Family. The office at which you currently see me, 5920 Cleveland Avenue (614-891-9994) will remain open and ready to serve you. Dr Brad Mehl has been a podiatrist for over twenty years and a Step Lively team member for the last seven years. He will be taking over your care and I leave you in expert hands. Dr Mehl and the staff of the north office will provide you with seamless care for all your Foot and Ankle Care needs including Diabetic Foot Care, Surgical Foot and Ankle Care, Sports Medicine and Orthotics, Wound Care, and Ingrown Toenail Care.
I ask all of to stay safe and to be well. Thanks again for all the great memories… you hold a special place in my heart.
With warmest regards,
Lee D. Pearlman, DPM
