What We Treat


Hundreds of ailments have been reported to the foot and ankle complex, with many more likely to be reported in future years. Some stem from hereditary/genetic factors, though the overwhelming majority arise from the cumulative effects of normal wear and tear. Most issues respond well to conservative management, with a select few requiring eventual surgical intervention. When necessary, surgical intervention is treated as a last resort after all reasonable conservative options are exhausted. 


What Our Patients Say About Us

I had been suffering from pain in my foot for over two months because I didn’t want the hassle of going to the doctor. I finally gave in to the pain and made an appointment at Dr. Applegate’s office. Everyone was so nice. Dr. Applegate was great and very thorough. I wish I had gone to see him when the pain started because the whole experience was a pleasure.

Dr. Applegate and staff were very attentive and professional. He diagnosed the problem and offered succinct treatment.

The staff was exceptional, the doctor was very helpful. My foot problem has disappeared. I would recommend Dr. Applegate to others and will continue to come if I have any other problems with my feet. This was my first time visiting a podiatrist and my visit was great.

Dr. Applegate took the time to explain my condition by examining and answered all of the questions I asked. His professionalism and demeanor made me feel better about my condition and recovery. In addition, his staff was helpful and nice.
