*Important Update*

On June 21, 2021, Ashland Mansfield Foot and Ankle Specialists will partner with OhioHealth to become OhioHealth Physician Group Podiatric Surgery.  For most of our patients, the name change will be the biggest change you will see.  Our health care providers, service locations, phone numbers, hours of operation and commitment to high quality care will remain the same.  OhioHealth accepts most insurance plans, but if there is a concern, please check with our office or check with this link: https://www.ohiohealth.com/patients-and-visitors/paying-for-your-care/accepted-insurance/. Thank you for 47 years of supporting our practice and providers.  This new partnership will provide us with more resources to help serve our patients in new and better ways, as well as improve communication among care providers and health systems.

Ashland Mansfield Foot and Ankle Specialists is pleased to welcome Brynn Hall, Nurse Practitioner, to our patient care team on December 7. Her appointment schedule starts January 11. Brynn is familiar with the area, having grown up here and graduated from Ontario High School. She obtained both her BSN and MSN from Ohio University and most recently she worked for a primary care group in Bucyrus as a nurse practitioner. We are happy to have her join our practice.

Keep Your Appointment. Keep Your Feet.

For Patients

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, podiatrists have seen some of the sickest patients of their careers—but these patients are not suffering from COVID. Instead, concerned about exposure to the virus, these patients have avoided regular appointments for preventive care or injuries, and as a result, they have severe diabetic foot wounds, infections, and in some cases even gangrene. Podiatrists are performing more amputations and often treating patients at risk of sepsis, a life-threatening systemic infection.

Patients with diabetes are at high risk from COVID-19 and should take precautions such as wearing a mask, limiting opportunities for exposure, and maintaining social distance. But APMA member podiatrists strongly encourage all patients, and especially those with diabetes, to keep up with their medical appointments.

Medical facilities are following strict protocols to protect health-care providers and patients, including requiring masks and social distance in waiting rooms and implementing disinfection procedures between patients. If you are concerned, ask your podiatrist’s office about how they will keep you safe and about the possibility of telehealth appointments.

Here are more steps to maintain control over your diabetes during the pandemic:

  • Stay Active. Get proper nutrition and exercise. Consider physical activity a prescription to be taken daily!
  • Stay Alert. Track your daily blood sugar levels and your A1C. Perform daily foot exams (a caregiver or family member can help) to look for any changes to your feet, including color, temperature, and even minor injuries such as scratches and scrapes. Protect your feet with shoes even around the house to avoid injuries.
  • Stay in Contact. Keep up with all appointments with your diabetes care team and reach out to your podiatrist immediately if you notice a wound, injury, or other changes to your feet.

Regular care to maintain your foot health and overall health is essential, particularly in light of the pandemic. Don’t neglect your regular care out of fear of COVID-19. Keep your appointment, and keep your feet!


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.


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.
