In brief: Foot Specialist
Select a board certified doctor with training in the foot and ankle.
Look for a dpm (doctor of podiatric medicine) or an orthopedic md/do (medical doctor or doctor of osteopathy) with a fellowship or special interest in foot and ankle. It is important that you are comfortable with the provider and you might want to consider the recommendations of friends and family in making your choice.
