“Dr. Hoy is absolutely outstanding!!  Superb professional knowledge, skills and judgment! Very kind and compassionate!  I feel very lucky to be under his care!” -Dr. Ming C., MD, PhD


Looking for a podiatrist in Seattle who offers a complete array of services?  Since 1990 our office has been a vital part of the Seattle health care community, providing medical, biomechanical and surgical care for the foot, ankle and lower extremities.

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 medical and surgical care.  From recalcitrant onychomycosis to diabetic foot ulcers, bunions and hammertoes to ankle sprains, we are here to support you for comprehensive care of lower-extremity conditions.  Refer your challenging or urgent lower-extremity cases today.

Dr. Hoy’s training was based at the University of California San Francisco/Stanford University Medical Center, and has been in practice since 2000.  As the specialists in the foot and ankle, podiatrists complete four years of podiatric medical school, followed by a compulsory, multi-year, hospital-based residency.  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 in a variety of settings.

We provide conservative as well as surgical care.  Here are just a few of the conditions we treat daily:

  • Injuries and Sports Medicine.  We treat ankle sprains, fractures and a variety of other traumatic injuries to the foot and ankle.  Refer your patients with painful acute and chronic foot and ankle conditions and we will take it from there!
  • Diabetes.  Podiatry is an integral part of the limb salvage team.  Studies show that patients with diabetes who see a podiatrist have significantly fewer hospitalizations and amputations.  Refer your patients for PVD or neuropathic diabetic foot care, or any patient who experiences a diabetic foot ulcer.  Dr. Hoy has specialized experience in lower-extremity wounds.
  • Deformities. Dr. Hoy is Board Certified in Foot Surgery and does reconstructive surgery for such conditions as hammertoes, bunions, neuromas and hallux rigidus at Swedish Medical Center.

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 – conservative management of acute and chronic conditions, prescription orthotic therapy, extracorporeal shockwave therapy, and surgical procedures.
  • Tried and true foot surgery procedures – including diabetic limb preservation, reconstructive foot surgery 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.

Ava is exceptionally professional at the front desk and was very transparent regarding insurance/cost/information. Dr. Hoy is clearly an experienced and thorough podiatrist.
