Welcome to Our Practice
November 11, 2020
Did you know November is National Diabetes Awareness Month? This year's campaign is "Keep your appointment. Keep your feet." Since the onset of the pandemic, missed diabetic foot checks have resulted in a huge spike in amputations because of untreated infections. For more information, go to the following link: http://echo7.bluehornet.com/ct/56318602:JhYp4ObaN:m:1:1644601941:871B98CADAA734B6F5A521865CB40B06:r
Effective Monday, September 21, Ashland Patients will no longer need to call from their cars to check in for an appointment. They may check in at the desk and wait in the waiting room if space allows and social distancing protocols can be observed. Masks will still be required. This is for the Ashland office only.
Update--April 28, 2020
Attention Patients: Effective May 1, for the health and safety of our staff and fellow patients, and to comply with the Governor's new order, we are requiring anyone who comes in to our offices to wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth (bandana, scarf, medical mask, dust mask, etc). The only exceptions would be for those who can't wear a face covering due to an ADA approved reason. At this point, we are not able to provide masks due to the ongoing difficulty of finding available supplies, so we are reserving what we have for our staff. We are looking into possibly getting some cloth masks to have on hand so we don't have to turn anyone away, but we don't have those yet. Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we navigate yet another COVID-19 hurdle.
Update - April 7th, 2020
We now offer Telemedicine! Please visit this Telemedicine link and enter in the Meeting ID given by your Doctor. Please follow the prompts to run the application. If you would like to use your mobile device, please install Zoom through your app store (available on both Apple and Android devices) and use the Meeting ID to join.
Starting Monday, March 30, some of our doctors' schedules have been temporarily altered to accommodate changes in patient volume. Please understand patients may see a different physician than they would normally see during the next few weeks. To help patients who may need to meet with a physician from home for a consult or follow up, we will be adding telemedicine as an option starting the week of March 30. Please call the office for more details.

Since 1974, Ashland / Mansfield Foot & Ankle Specialists has been committed to "treating the whole person" in a local setting that eliminates the need for a drive to a bigger city. With four physicians and a hardworking staff, patients of all ages with any range of conditions come to our office to receive state-of-the-art treatment and diagnostics from our doctors.
Seeing over 12,000 in-office patients and over 3,000 hospital patients per year makes Ashland / Mansfield Foot & Ankle Specialists the leading foot and ankle practice in North Central Ohio. Whether it is as simple as removing an ingrown toenail, surgically repairing a fracture, or needing a complex reconstruction of the foot and ankle, our group of four practitioners have the training and experience to care for most any foot and ankle pathology.
In-office X-rays and other diagnostic equipment such as ultrasound and non-invasive vascular studies are available if needed to evaluate an injury. This allows the patient to avoid the ER and any further hospital testing.
New patients are always welcome and often seen between the two offices within 48 hours during business weekdays. If there is a true and immediate injury, patients can often be seen the day of their injury.
We are also unique in that as independent practitioners we are able to be on staff at all three of the area's hospitals: Ohio Health in Mansfield, Avita Hospital in Ontario, and University Hospitals Samaritan Medical Center in Ashland.
