A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM), also known as a podiatric physician or surgeon. Podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg.
Podiatrists are the most qualified doctors to care for your feet. They complete four years of training in a podiatric medical school and three years of hospital residency training. This training is similar to that of other doctors.
Podiatrists can specialize in many fields, including surgery, sports medicine, wound care, pediatrics (children), and diabetic care.

Awesome experience! I avoided ingrown toenail surgery for 10 years because of a bad experience with a pediatrician. I'll never wait that long again.
Very caring and takes his time making sure one is informed and understands everything that is going on. I felt very comfortable and I am happy I had my procedure done.
I really like working with Dr Ellsworth because he takes the needed time to answer questions and explain the course of treatment. The office staff is fantastic.
