Our practice is working together to realize a shared vision of uncompromising excellence in podiatric care.
To fulfill this mission, we are committed to:
Our friendly and experienced staff will take great care of you. Please bring your insurance card and ID to your appointment.
A thorough exam of your foot and/or ankle will be performed. Your podiatrist may wish to obtain x-rays to better diagnose and treat your condition. Your doctor will then recommend your best options for a treatment plan. We like to start conservatively with the easiest and best options to get you back on your feet.
If your condition does require surgery, your podiatric surgeon is well trained to walk you through the procedure. Some procedures are relatively minor and can be performed in office. Other procedures may require anesthesia at the hospital or surgery center.
Frontier Foot is located in Building 1 of the Sheridan Square Medical Plaza, at the intersection of Wilcox Drive and Meadowview Parkway. We are located across from the Kingsport Aquatic Center and Meadowview Golf Course. The office is easily accessed from exit 3 or 4 from Interstate 26.
You can find our office on the first floor under The Plastic Surgery Center and between The Allergy, Asthma, and Sinus Center and Urban Roots Salon.
