Welcome to Total Foot and Ankle of Tampa Bay
At Total Foot and Ankle, our priority is to deliver quality care to informed patients in a comfortable and convenient setting.
When you have problems with your feet or ankles, you need to turn to a podiatrist who listens and responds … an experienced doctor who knows the field and can effectively diagnose and treat your needs … a friendly physician who counsels you on the best ways to maintain and improve your health. Our physicians meet all these criteria. Plus, you benefit from a dedicated team of trained professionals who give you the individualized attention you deserve. Our physicians are trained in all aspects of non-surgical and surgical treatment of foot and ankle problems in adults and children. We offer treatments for plantar fasciitis (heel pain), bunions, ingrown toenails, foot pain, ankle replacement, and diabetic foot care. It is our practice's philosophy to make sure all non-surgical options have been exhausted prior to discussing surgery with you.
At Total Foot and Ankle, we believe that a doctor and patient become a team for treating an individual's feet and ankles. We also believe that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions regarding their health and well-being. Our physicians spend most of their time listening to understand your concerns and responding with the best treatment options for you. Included on this website we have an extensive section covering the full array of topics associated with podiatry and the diagnosis and treatment of foot and ankle disorders. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your feet and ankles.
