Foot and Ankle Specialist: What We Do


My wife Peggy and I decided to open my podiatry (foot and ankle specialist) practice here in Traverse City not just for the natural beauty of the area, the amazing changing of the four seasons, or because it’s my hometown. It is also my first choice for a medical community that is second-to-none. As a community, we have built an excellent reputation with Munson Medical Center and its affiliates, and we have been able to attract some of the best doctors and healthcare support staff here for the same reasons you may have chosen to live and work here. When you can have the best modern medical facilities and services provided close to the comfort of your own home, it makes sense to obtain your care with us.
