The podiatrists at PA Foot & Ankle Associates believe it's important to keep up with the latest technology and techniques in their field, so they attend multiple podiatry seminars throughout the year.

As a result, two of the practice's doctors were recently voted to be the Best Podiatrist in Lehigh Valley Magazine's Best of the Valley competition and in Morning Call's Readers' Choice award competition.
