As the years passed and Dr. Louis Herbert Sherman's family grew larger, so, it seemed, did his generosity.

When he died at age 91 Thursday at Kennedy Memorial Hospitals-University Medical Center/Cherry Hill, Dr. Sherman left a legacy of love that touched four generations. "He said he felt like he's a gem collector and that all of us are in the center of the ring," said daughter Roz Lessing, a Michigan psychologist.

A Delaware County podiatrist is one of 301 individuals charged in a nationwide Medicare-fraud bust spanning 36 federal districts and involving approximately $900 million in fraudulent payments. Stephen A. Monaco, 59, of Broomall, was charged with submitting $5 million in false claims to Medicare, Medicaid, and four private insurers through his Havertown practice, A Foot Above Podiatry, U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger announced Wednesday. Between 2008 and 2014, prosecutors say, Monaco submitted claims for procedures that did not take place, and procedures that were medically unnecessary and therefore not reimbursable by Medicare and other insurance companies.

In the year in which he turned 45, John D. Lewis Jr. at last became a doctor of podiatry. He had walked a few paths to get there. Using the GI Bill after his Army service during World War II, he earned a bachelor's degree in biology at what is now Hampton (Va.) University in 1951. But later in the 1950s, daughter-in-law Lisa Lewis said, he had to work the night shift "as a tow-motor operator at the Reading Terminal Market," taking trash to incinerators. Still, during those years, she said, he commuted to Manhattan, and earned a certificate in physical therapy at Columbia University in 1961.

On his first day on the job, David Carrozzino found a note on his desk to make a house call on his way home. More than two decades and thousands of visits later, Carrozzino, a podiatrist, still makes house calls to homebound patients in South Jersey. Carrozzino is among a rare breed in health care these days. A prevalent practice decades ago, home visits by physicians have declined drastically and are more often made today in rural areas. By his count, Carrozzino has made more than 15,700 house calls since that first visit in 1991.

A PENNSYLVANIA podiatrist last week came up with a novel way to save on health-care costs. He operated on himself. Actually, he didn't do it to save money, but Dr. Thomas Jiunta told me that he really didn't trust anyone else to do it as well as he could. The 45-minute self-surgery took place in Jiunta's office last week in Kingston, Luzerne County, under local anesthesia. If the Republicans have their way with repealing Obamacare, more folks just might find themselves following Jiunta's lead.

Brian Crispell is all in for his second, and likely final, Philadelphia Marathon. A Philadelphia podiatrist who soon plans to open his own practice, Crispell is hoping to carry the momentum from his showing last month in the Baltimore Marathon, where he finished second. Since his wife Dana Koesar is expecting the couple's first child in February, the 37-year-old Crispell says that this is probably his swan song. And he has been running between 80 and 100 miles per week in preparation.

The buzzword in footwear these days is "barefoot. " Shoes as minimal as ballet slippers - and shoes with fat two-inch soles - claim to be healthy for you because they're like going barefoot. While there are studies that support some of the purported benefits, there is also "a lot of hype," says Kendrick Whitney, a professor of podiatry and orthopedics at Temple University. "And you have people thinking, 'I'm just going to lace up these shoes and get the same workout as going to a gym,' " he said.
