What Is a Podiatrist?

Specialized Foot and Ankle Care

Robert D. Parker is a doctor of podiatric medicine, trained in foot and ankle care. Whether you're suffering from bunions, joint pain, or other foot issues, you'll get the care you need. We accept most insurance plans.

Podiatric Medicine

Throughout history, there have always been doctors who focused primarily on foot and ankle care, but it was not until the early 20th century that podiatry was acknowledged as a protected field of medicine. In the United States, these specialists are called Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPM).

We offer discounts to patients who do not have insurance. Call Hill Country Foot Specialist today!

Years of Study Required

Doctors of podiatric medicine generally have completed four years at an undergraduate school, four years at a medical school specializing in podiatry, and an additional one or two years in residency.
 
The first two years of medical school concentrate on the general medical curriculum that most physicians are required to complete. The last two years are focused on in-depth curriculum related to the foot and ankle.
