Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Michael L. Goddard, DPM and Dr. Robert H. Leaming, DPM

Our complimentary initial office examination assists patients in determining treatment alternatives. We have continually been at the forefront of research and innovation in the practice of foot and ankle medicine – paying attention to resolving the underlying cause of patient pain, discomfort and loss of function – not just the superficial symptoms.

Our doctors share the same common belief that the best treatment alternative for a patient is often least invasive which offers the quickest recovery time.
