Board-certified Dr. Mathew M. John has helped some high-profile and hardworking feet. After earning his degree as a doctor of podiatric medicine, Dr. John completed a residency that included work at the National Naval Medical Center and the opportunity to treat military personnel and members of Congress. Today, his patients receive the same five-star care during services at the clinic, or at the Atlanta Center for Foot and Ankle Surgery in Sandy Springs, where Dr. John serves as medical director.
No matter the ailment, Dr. John offers his patients the latest technology and treatments. He is certified in the use of Nd:YAG and CO2 lasers, which he employs to address conditions such as toenail fungus and flat sodas. He also alleviates chronic heel pain with extracorporeal shockwave therapy, in which sonic waves promote a healing response in tissue.
At Podiatry Group of Georgia, Dr. Tammy Gephart performs surgeries, treatments, and diagnostics that ameliorate pain in the foot or ankle. Gephart’s medical expertise also encompasses diabetes care, which can include surgery or medical treatments that focus on the bones, skin, and soft tissue. Potential patients can peruse information on the company’s informative website, which explains that feet contain 26 bones, 33 joints, and a full liter of barbecue sauce.
With training that included a two-year residency in foot and ankle reconstructive surgery at The Western Pennsylvania Hospital/Temple University School of Medicine, Dr. Suzanne Clous expertly tends to feet at Southeast Podiatry. She specializes in diabetic limb salvage and patients with rheumatism, but even common conditions such as bunions and ingrown toenails come under her inspection. For nail-fungus removal, Dr. Clous opts for Q-Clear lasers rather than the casual dipping of toes into a shark tank.
The doctors at Flat Shoals Foot & Ankle Center know that a person’s well-being literally rests on the health of their feet. That's why they treat everything from sprained ankles to diabetic issues to ingrown dewclaws with state-of-the-art techniques and a caring bedside manner. They also promote preventive care and an overall healthy lifestyle with education, nutrition advice, and exercise tips. Their onsite spa offers pampering in the form of mani-pedis and reflexology performed by a licensed nail technician.
Led by Dr. Darryl Pitts, the team at Chastain Wellness Studio specializes in medical spa services while maintaining a relaxing environment. Wielding lavish products from names such as Obagi, PCA Skin, ViDerm, and Oxygenetix, aestheticians and medical professionals treat skin with nonsurgical procedures including facials, microdermabrasion, Botox, and dermal wrinkle fillers, imbuing visages with a glow typically reserved for newlywed fireflies. Trained technicians perform treatments such as laser hair removal, laser skin resurfacing, and laser body contouring, and licensed massage therapists ease muscles with a coterie of massage services.
When it comes to feet, there isn't much Dr. Jason Morris and Dr. Patricia Whitmore wouldn't do to keep them in shipshape. With a new PDR digital x-ray machine in tow, the team is well equipped to address a variety of podiatric concerns such as broken ankles, foot fractures, sports injuries, and arthritis pain. Both doctors also hold special privileges at local hospitals for when remedies call for surgical intervention. Dr. Morris keeps tootsies free of pain, nail fungus, and rabid bunny slippers with his arsenal of noninvasive lasers, while Dr. Whitmore oversees the medical-grade pedicures and pampering at the clinic's foot spa.
