Richard C. Bennett, D.P.M.

I have been a podiatrist in Illinois for the past 25 years. In this time I have become proficient in a wide range of foot and ankle problems, from routine to complex. In addition to my office I also have surgical privileges at Presence St. Joseph hospital in Lincoln Park, St. James hospital in Chicago Heights, or Gold Coast Surgery Center in Water Tower, across the hall from my office.

Meet Your Feet


“Dr. Bennett recently treated me for a plantar’s wart. I had not had one in over 20 years and remembered the process of being treated as very painful. The old way was to cut through the skin surgically with a knife and then bandage it, take a couple of weeks to recover, it could get infected, etc. etc. When Dr. Bennett treated me with the new laser for my recent episode, I was shocked at how easy and painless the treatment had become. The treatment was over before it began! And NO recovery! No bandages, no keeping it anticeptically clean for a week, no exercise restrictions — it was over fast and painlessly! He is amazing! Can’t recommend him more highly! I will definitely be a repeat patient of Dr. Bennett’s.”

Cathie Warner

“I would like to thank Dr. Bennett for his kindness and patience with my foot problem. He made me feel so relieved to know that this problem is not as bad as I thought. The laser treatment was performed with the utmost care and concern for me and his knowledge in his field is impeccable. I will be visiting the clinic again and will recommend Dr. Bennett to my friends. Thanks again.”
