“Comprehensive exam and conservative treatment by a kind and experienced podiatric surgeon.” -Mark V., DDS


Since 1990 our office has been a vital part of the Seattle health care community, providing medical, orthopedic and surgical care for the foot, ankle and lower extremities.  As the specialists in the foot and ankle, podiatrists complete four years of podiatric medical school, followed by a multi-year, compulsory, hospital-based residency.  Dr. Hoy’s training was based at the University of California San Francisco/Stanford University Medical Center.  Committed to excellence and education, Dr. Hoy is a Clinical Associate of the University of Washington School of Medicine.  He has been instructing residents of the Swedish Cherry Hill Family Medicine Residency Program since 2005.  His practice involves care is a variety of settings.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you to meet your patients’ needs.  Any time your patients need an expert for a simple or complex foot and ankle condition, we are here for board-certified foot and ankle care.  From recalcitrant onychomycosis to diabetic foot ulcers to ankle sprains, we are here to support you for a whole host of lower-extremity conditions.  We provide conservative as well as surgical care.  Refer your challenging or urgent lower-extremity cases today.  Here are just a few of the conditions we treat daily:

  • Injuries.  We treat ankle sprains and fractures, Achilles ruptures, and a variety of other traumatic injuries to the foot and ankle.  Refer your patients with foot and ankle injuries and let us take it from here!
  • Diabetes.  You remind your patients with diabetes to see an ophthalmologist every year.  Do you encourage them to see a podiatrist, as well?  Podiatrists are the foot and ankle specialists, and studies show that patients with diabetes who see a podiatrist have significantly fewer hospitalizations and amputations.  Refer your patients for regular at-risk diabetic foot care, and refer any patient who experiences a diabetic foot ulcer to us.  We have specialized experience in lower-extremity wounds.
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease. PAD can cause serious complications in the feet and ankles.  Podiatry is an integral part of the limb salvage team.  Refer your at-risk patients for regular care before issues become limb-threatening.

We regularly collaborate with other healthcare providers in both in-patient and out-patient settings as a part of a multidisciplinary patient care team. We provide:

  • Comprehensive care – from routine, conservative management of a chronic condition to more complex surgical procedures.  Procedures are done in the context of a medical history and physical, evaluation and management.
  • The latest foot and ankle surgical procedures – including diabetic limb preservation and more.
  • Early detection of diseases – like diabetes, arthritis and cardiovascular disease that manifest in the foot and ankle.

Our office works with most insurance plans, including Cigna, Aetna, Regence, Premera, Meritain, United Healthcare, First Choice, Kaiser Permanente, Lifewise, Providence, Ambetter and Medicare.  We only accept Medicaid as a secondary insurance to another plan such as Medicare, not Apple Health as a primary insurance.  Please call your insurance to confirm that Dr. Jinwah John Hoy, podiatrist, NPI number 1104820653, is on your patient’s insurance plan.
