If you need podiatry services for foot and ankle care, Ephraim McDowell Podiatry can help. We have a board-certified podiatrist and an advanced practice provider on staff. They diagnose and treat disorders of the feet, ankles and lower limbs. It may be something as simple as a corn or callus. It could be more serious like tendonitis or an ankle sprain.  Some conditions may require surgery. They also diagnose and treat sports-related injuries.

Our providers are an important part of the care team for individuals with diabetes. Diabetics depend on the podiatry services for foot and ankle care to maintain the health of their feet.

While we offer routine foot and ankle care, we also specialize in diabetic foot care and limb preservation. Our podiatrist also provides wound care at our Wound Healing Center. As a result, patients with wounds that won’t heal receive the care they need that also preserves their limbs.
