Who We Are

Our practice was established in 1973 across from the University of California San Francisco medical center on Parnassus avenue and remained in that location for many years.

In 2000, the practice was re-located to St. Mary’s Medical Center in order to obtain more space, afford patients a more comfortable atmosphere and offer convenient parking. Each treatment room is spacious with natural lighting and windows that open to allow for fresh air.

The office prides itself in offering patients the latest technology available to diagnosis and treat foot and ankle problems. We utilize a comprehensive electronic medical record system, digital radiography and computerized scanner to evaluate foot pressures.

The practice manages all types of foot and ankle conditions in all age groups ranging from maintenance care for the diabetic and/or elderly patient, sport related injuries, abnormal mechanics requiring an orthotic device, to all aspects of surgical reconstruction of the foot and ankle.
