Welcome to Instep Podiatry!

In light of the current situation with the COVID-19 virus, we would like to assure our patients that we are taking precautions to protect our patients and staff. We are following CDC recommendations above our normal procedures. We will modify these protocols, if necessary, as we learn more.

We also ask that if anyone has a cough, shortness of breath, sore throat or fever that they stay home and contact their primary care physician. You can call us to reschedule your appointment. The health of our patients and staff is our top priority. We thank you for your trust and continued support.

Our doctors are highly trained to treat conditions of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. We also prescribe orthotic devices, medications, and perform inpatient and outpatient foot surgery, ankle surgery along with other procedures.
