What is a Podiatrist?
A Podiatrist is a specialist who provides care of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. A Podiatrist, sometimes referred to as podiatric physician, foot and ankle surgeons, or foot doctors, must graduate from an accredited college of podiatric medicine and complete a residency program. Podiatrists also must pass written and oral board examinations and must obtain a state license to be able to practice podiatric medicine and surgery.
