What should you look for in a podiatrist?

The very first thing to look for in a podiatrist is his or her credentials. Podiatrists are foot and ankle doctors who have earned their doctorate in podiatric medicine (DPM) and completed a surgical residency. Depending on your foot care needs, you may also wish to look for one who is trained, experienced, and board-eligible or board-certified to perform surgical procedures.


Looking for a good podiatristBeyond checking qualifications, you want to find a podiatrist who has a good reputation with his or her patients. Reviews and testimonials can help with this. Additionally, an office location that is convenient for you is also a plus.
