New specialty services in Oakhurst

The community will now be able to benefit from two additional services at Adventist Health/Community Care.

Dr. Claude Schutz offers expert foot care and surgery services, and Kimberly Trejo, a licensed clinical social worker, offers care to those suffering from depression, anxiety and other behavioral health problems.

Schutz is board-certified in podiatric surgery. He provides care for a wide range of foot and ankle problems such as bunions, hammertoes, heel spurs, ingrown toenails, heel pain, fractures, calluses, warts and problems associated with diabetes.

A graduate of the California College of Podiatric Medicine, he received additional training at the Dwight David Eisenhower Army Medical Center in Fort Gordon, Georgia, and has been providing foot care for more than 35 years.

Trejo is a Fresno native who became interested in social work after being employed as an administrative clerk inside the Fresno Police Department.

“I’ve always been fascinated watching first responders react to disasters,” says Trejo. “But then I began to wonder, who helps the first responders cope during the aftermath of these tragedies?”

Trejo wanted to learn more about the thought process of the human mind and behaviors. She attended California State University, Fresno, where she earned a bachelors in psychology and masters in social work.

Both Trejo and Schutz can be reached at Adventist Health/Community Care, 48677 Victoria Lane, (559) 683-2711.

Dr. Carl Christenson

With Schutz leaving private practice for Adventist Health, Dr. Carl Christenson, a podiatrist, will take over his practice, seeing patients 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., on the first and third Mondays of the month, and the second and third Fridays of the month.

A graduate of the California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco, Christenson completed his residency in San Francisco in 1993. He said he is looking forward to taking over the practice, and promises the same professional and friendly service.

The practice is located at 48677 Victoria Lane, Suite 104, and an open house, with light refreshments, is planned 5-7 p.m., March 18.

For appointments, (559) 227-3668.
