Dr. Hal Ornstein has been in private practice for over twenty-five years and currently serves as Medical Director of Affiliated Foot and Ankle Center, LLP with an office in Howell, New Jersey where he currently resides. He actively participates in local non-profit community run programs as well as national programs such as Yoga Gangsters, a Miami-based national non-profit organization whose mission is to empower youth by addressing the symptoms of trauma and poverty using the practice of yoga. He dedicates his life to carrying out his personal mission statement; “Every Day is an Opportunity to Create and Share Miles of Smiles,” and works to help others alter their paradigm to demonstrate that “Life Just Gets Better” by encouraging definition and achievement of success. As such, Dr. Ornstein was very proud to create The Ornstein Family Foundation to drive his purpose in life, which is to give as much as he can, to as many as he can.
