The Podiatry Center has helped over 250,000 people since 1980!

Treating Former NFL MVP

When seeking podiatric treatment, you’ll want to go to top-rated, highly trained, and experienced doctors — especially if they’ve treated professionals who directly rely on their feet and ankles more than anyone else, like professional athletes, runners, or trainers.

At The Podiatry Center, we work hard to earn our patients’ trust in our services. We’ve treated professional athletes including former NFL MVP kicker, Mark Mosely, who played for the Washington Football Team. He trusted us to keep his feet healthy for his career, and we can provide you with that same top-notch service.


Discussing health concerns can be stressful if you or your loved one doesn’t speak English as your first language. In some cases, it can even lead to poor treatment due to miscommunications. At The Podiatry Center, we understand the importance of being able to communicate effectively with our patients for the best possible care. We are a multilingual practice with English, Spanish, and Tagalog services available. This is just another step we take to go above and beyond for our community!
