Welcome to Our Practice

Podiatrists in Marietta, Woodstock and Jasper, GA

Welcome to Foot and Ankle Reconstruction, where patients are our family!
We believe it is important to educate patients as thoroughly as possible, which enables them to make well-informed decisions regarding their health. We strive to provide personal commitment and accessibility to all patients. Together we will explore the various treatment options for your particular condition and decide on a course of action that is most beneficial to you. We offer services for ankle painbunions, heel pain, pediatric foot care, sports medicine/sports injuries, and more. Foot and ankle problems are often complex, and the more you understand about what you or your loved ones are experiencing, the more successful we will all be to getting you back to a pain-free life.

We are also committed to making sure our patients feel like they are exactly that...A Patient. All of our Podiatrists have moved from larger multi-doctor groups back to a smaller practice environment. We all feel that this is better for the patient to truly get the best care, as well as for the doctor to be able to provide personalized care that varies from one patient to the next. 

It has been our experience that clear and effective communication between a doctor and patient is essential for successful treatment. Please feel free to contact our office at any time to ask a question, book an appointment, or give us feedback on our practice. Here at Foot and Ankle Reconstruction, we are committed to helping you!
