Bio for Richard C. Bennett, D.P.M.

Greetings! Welcome and thank you for visiting my site. I sincerely hope you find it informative and helpful in your search for a caring foot doctor.

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.

My office now offers the latest FDA approved treatment for fungal infections of the toenail. This new approach puts patients’ safety and comfort first. Treatment typically takes 10-20 minutes and poses no risk to serious side effects, which is a huge improvement, compared to conventional toenail fungus treatments.

Being a long distance runner, I have always been interested in foot problems and how best to resolve them. When not working, I am running or walking my two-rescued Chihuahua’s. In my spare time, I am a fundraiser and volunteer for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in Chicago where I mentor patients who have been newly diagnosed with lymphoma. I also mentor another one on one cancer support group, Imerman Angels.

Comparison of GenesisPlus with Conventional Toenail Fungus Treatments

Oral Drugs
  • Generally effective in treating nail fungus
  • Drug must be taken over long period of time (90 days)
  • Associated with a number of adverse side effects, such as gastrointestinal disorders, skin disorders, headaches and abnormal liver function
  • Not recommended for some patients who have poor health or diabetes
Prescription Topicals
  • Effectiveness is highly variable due to the fact that the drug does not sufficiently penetrate the nail plate to reach the underlying infection
  • Drug must be frequently applied to the nails, often daily, over a long period of time
  • Effective in clearing nails of both mild and severe forms of fungus
  • New nail grows with no sign of infection
  • No significant side effects
  • As with oral drugs and prescription topicals, final results are achieved when the nail grows out, which can take a few months
