A message from Dr. Stych:

Traverse City's Family Podiatrist

I value the individuality and diversity of my patients, and enjoy the opportunity of getting to know each and every one. I have a wealth of experience working with a variety of patient populations, including children, adults, seniors, people with acute foot issues, and those managing chronic diseases. The therapeutic goal for my patient is always foot comfort. My more personal goal is to help my patient maintain the best possible quality of life.

I am highly qualified to treat all foot and ankle disorders and particularly enjoy treating bunion deformities, complex diabetic foot conditions, Achilles tendon disorders, lower extremity skin & nail problems, flatfoot, and pediatric foot conditions.

Thank you for coming to us and allowing us to help you!
