The podiatrists at the Eugene-Springfield area Oregon Medical Group specialize in the care of the foot and ankle. Common concerns include Achilles tendon, foot or ankle pain, skin conditions, issues with toenails and toes, and injuries. Patients with diabetes often rely on a podiatrist, and in those cases, OMG’s unique team approach makes collaboration between physicians and patients easy and productive.
Podiatrists are physicians (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) who have completed advanced and specialized study in all aspects of foot and ankle care. Education includes four years of podiatric medical school and at least one year in a surgical residency program. Our podiatrists boast years of experience and OMG has one of only a handful of podiatric surgeons that have completed a one year fellowship in advanced foot and ankle reconstruction.
A visit to the podiatrist is typically covered by insurance, but some providers may require a referral from a primary care provider. If you are an OMG patient, we can simplify the referral process. In any case, we can help you identify your insurance company’s requirements, or you can call them first. Always check with insurance before committing to an appointment; no one likes insurance surprises.
Our podiatry clinic is located in the same building as our Imaging Department, for cases requiring X-ray, CT, Ultrasound or MRI.
