What is a Podiatrist?
A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM). Podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions of the foot, ankle and related structures of the leg.
What are the qualifications of a Podiatrist?
Podiatrists are the most qualified doctors to care for your feet. They complete four years of training in a podiatric medical school followed by hospital residency training. This training is similar to that of other doctors. They can also choose to specialize in surgery, sports medicine, wound care, pediatrics or diabetic foot care.
Dr. Grossman completed his medical training at The Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio (now the Kent State College of Podiatric Medicine). He completed his residency in Youngstown, Ohio.
