quality care

Our priority is to deliver

to informed patients in a comfortable setting.

about us

When you have a problem with your feet, you need to turn to a Podiatrist who listens and responds to effectively diagnose and treat your needs. Our office is a place where you can get complete foot or ankle care from friendly physicians who counsel you on the best ways to maintain and improve your health. Rather than seeing several doctors or therapists, you can get all of your care in one place.


We have been serving Rochester and the surrounding area for over 50 years. Let us help you get back on your feet.


We believe that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions regarding their health and well being. That is why we have included an extensive section on this website covering the full array of topics associated with podiatry and podiatric diagnoses and treatments. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your feet.


The best care in the world doesn't mean anything if you can't access it. At the Foot & Ankle Clinic, we strive to make our Rochester office as efficient and convenient as possible. Without the hassle of a parking ramp, we are here to help you easily get in our door.
