Foot and Ankle of West Georgia, P.C.


Podiatrists specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower leg.

Podiatrists have expertise in orthopedics, radiography, sports medicine, dermatology, and surgery. Some conditions that podiatrists treat are ankle injuries, bunions, calluses, neuromas, running injuries, and toe deformities. They are often the first health professionals to diagnose vascular problems that have previously gone unrecognized. Podiatrists also contribute significantly to the areas of diabetic foot care, arthritic foot care, and wound healing.

Our staff includes the following podiatrists:
