Dr. Darrell Latva
41 years experience male
I have 34 years of private practice experience and 24 years teaching in an academic setting; I currently hold the rank of associate professor. I created both a residency program and a podiatry service at a Level I trauma center, and was chief, the head if you will, of that podiatry service. I am board certified by both the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery and the American Board of Podiatric Medicine. But, enough about credentials. What can I offer you, my patient? My greatest strength is listening, thinking, and arriving at a diagnosis. When you present your problem, it's my job to ask the most appropriate questions to get me to my diagnosis; since we only have fifteen minutes, we both must work quickly. That's where my experience counts. I am currently seeing patients Thursday from 8-10 CST, on the HealthTap website.
