Who are the best podiatrists in Richmond?

The truth is, you have a lot of great options when it comes to foot doctors in Richmond, Va. Just last month, Richmond Magazine published their popular "Top Docs" edition, and my partner, Dr. Jeffrey Frost and I were honored to be two of the top five podiatrists listed (this was the sixth year our practice made the list). The other podiatrists on this year's Top Docs list were Dr. Simon Mest, Dr. Scott Vantre and Dr. David Weiss. Each of these doctors are fine, experienced podiatrists serving the Richmond area, and we congratulate them for their well deserved recognition.

With so many good choices, how do you decide which podiatrist is best for you? It depends on what you need. At The Foot & Ankle Center, we offer more than just the usual services you would expect from a podiatry clinic — our vision for our clinic is to provide everything for complete foot care under one roof. So, in addition to normal podiatric services such as treatment of bunions, heel pain and nail problems, we also offer a complete diabetic foot care program, including a diabetic shoe store right on site (with hundreds of styles available); a medical grade nail spa where you can get manicures and pedicures in a clean environment without having to worry about germs and infection; a full-time pedorthist (shoe specialist) and custom orthotics made on the premises; our own digital imaging systems so you don't have to go elsewhere for an X-ray of your feet, and a retail area where you can purchase any foot care products you might need. We even have our own surgical procedure room so we can perform certain surgical procedures right in our office. In fact, we have the only JCAHO-accredited office-based surgical center for podiatry in Virginia.

So, comparing services is one way to choose your foot doctor. Another way is to check the online review sites and see what others are saying about their experiences with various podiatrists in the Richmond area. Sites such as Angie's List, Google Plus and RateMDs are good places to start. We have a reviews page on our website with links to several of the more popular review sites, and we encourage you to check our reviews to see what patients are saying about The Foot & Ankle Center.

In summary, there are some excellent foot doctors in Richmond, Va. We encourage you to compare services, look at various practices' websites and check their online reviews. As always, we welcome you to choose The Foot & Ankle Center for any foot or ankle related issue you may be having.
