New Patients



“Dr. Hoy had the highest rating, the best training and seemed to be the most professional. I chose to see him despite his office being downtown and I have to depend on others for transportation. I was not disappointed. He was attentive to my needs, thorough and thoughtful. The service and recommendations he gave were very helpful and gave relief for my foot pain.” -Doris Diane D., 12/23/2017

What to expect during your appointment: “My approach to care is to know you as a patient, your day to day activities on your feet, and what your goals are.  I know the feet, and you know you.  I will make sure all items of medical concern are covered.  I will thoroughly examine all the systems of the foot and ankle, and correlate that with the systems of whole body.  With that information I can make a proper diagnosis and get your feedback regarding all the personalized treatment options available, from the simplest to the most invasive, including utilizing other specialists as necessary.  After we choose the treatment option together, I will guide you through every step of the way and reassess to see how everything is working out.”  -Dr. Hoy

“Ava and Dr. Hoy were very professional and friendly. My experience was very smooth and stress free. Ava works with your insurance company to figure out your coverage and Dr. Hoy is a bright smiling face. His exams are very thorough and you leave with a solid plan of action!” -Gabrielle A., 5/10/2018

“Very efficient office staff and setup. Dr. Hoy did a thorough examination for my plantar fasciitis. He has a very pragmatic approach and had me buy some reasonably priced orthotics from Nordstrom in the building downstairs. Cost was very reasonable–$125 for 30 min new patient visit.”  -Todd S., 5/9/2019
