Our mission is simple: give all patients the best foot and ankle care we can provide. This means not only determining the root cause of someone’s pain and discomfort, but also the ways to address it that best fit a patient’s needs and lifestyle.

We outline some of our service specialties below, but please do not hesitate to reach out to us for any foot or ankle problems you may have. If there is any treatment beyond our scope we can’t take care of, we can direct you to someone who can.

Diabetic Foot Care

Diabetes is a serious condition that can have devastating effects on the feet over time. Our practice not only provides prompt, direct care for patients facing complications, but also preventative screening and maintenance to help keep those complications from arising in the first place.

We work with all our diabetic patients, at different stages of their conditions, to help ensure positive outcomes. Our diabetic foot care services include:

  • Diabetic screening tests, including ABI testing for circulation.
  • Annual diabetic shoes and inserts.
  • Wound care for many situations.

Nail & Skin Care

Our skin and nails are on the “front lines” of our exposure to the world, and as such can suffer some uncomfortable afflictions. Our feet, leading the way where we step and being crammed into footwear much of the day, definitely have higher risks of skin and nail problems.

We provide treatment for a wide range of nail and skin conditions, including:

  • Ingrown toenails (including surgical removal of the nail, if needed).
  • Plantar warts.
  • Fungal nail infections.
  • Corns and calluses.
  • Athlete’s foot.


Heel Pain

Heel pain is one of the most frequent foot-related conditions people suffer, from sharp pain in the morning to aching heels after a long day of work or exercise.

Heel pain can have multiple causes—from plantar fasciitis to flat feet to Achilles tendinitis and more—and finding out what is at the root of your pain is the first step toward effectively treating it.

Once we get to the source of your heel pain, we can recommend the right treatment plan for your needs. This may include changes in lifestyle, the use of orthotics, or even therapies such as our MLS laser to reduce pain and accelerate the healing of injured tissues.

Do not be one of too many people who suffer silently with heel pain. You can get life-changing help, and we can provide it!

Bunions & Foot Deformities

Many people have a bunion, hammertoes, or other deformity in the structure of their feet. In many cases, significant relief and pain reduction can be achieved without the need for surgery.

Through the use of orthotics that can redistribute weight from affected areas, exercises and stretching to condition weak muscles and tissues, and padding to reduce friction and increase comfort, many patients with painful conditions can find much higher mobility, comfort, and quality of life.

Sports Injuries & General Pain

Being active is great for the overall health of our feet and ankles, but nonetheless increases risks of sports injuries, too.

Whether you have been injured from a sudden impact or the strain of overworking your body, it is very important you receive the right care and ensure proper healing. Trying to perform through pain and injury can make matters worse, and even lead to chronic complications.

Our office specializes in sports injury treatment and measures to help prevent injuries from recurring. Our MLS laser treatment is an outstanding tool in accelerating recovery, while changes in workout regimens, footwear, and other elements can have crucial effects as well.

When a patient comes to us with a sports injury, our goal is to help them get back to what they love as quickly and as safely as possible.
