Our Staff

The brief descriptions below are designed to familiarize you with our staff's training, professional credentials and work experience.

All doctors use the latest techniques in treating foot and ankle problems due to conditions such as diabetes, ingrown nails, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. They also treat injuries such as sprains and fractures. The doctors focus on helping patients understand the nature of their problems and/or injuries and the best treatments. Whether surgical or non-surgical treatment is indicated, the doctors will discuss what options are available to address your individual problem. Custom orthotics can be prescribed, if necessary, to correct foot and ankle problems and this office participates in the Medicare Diabetic Shoe Program.
