Urgent Caresee a foot and ankle physician, surgeon and specialist for your urgent condition

We prevent, diagnose and treat all conditions affecting the foot and ankle, including injuries and deformities, from the simple to complex, in patients of all ages.  Dr. Hoy is experienced in treating injuries and sports medicine; surgery for neuromas, bunions and hammertoes; arthritis; infections; diabetic foot and wound care, and orthotics.  He is a specialist in reconstructive foot surgery and limb preservation.  We also detect diseases that exhibit warning signs in the lower extremities such as diabetes, arthritis and cardiovascular disease.

“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 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 providers as necessary. Collaboratively we will choose a treatment plan together, then I will guide and reassess to see how everything is working out.” 

-Dr. Hoy

Dr. Hoy looks for conservative, non-surgical solutions first. However, when conservative methods are not producing the expected results, then surgery may be the necessary option to resolve the condition.

“After years of trying to figure out the issue with my foot, Dr. Hoy gave me an incredibly thorough explanation as to what is wrong, plus a 4 step treatment plan to alleviate the discomfort. He listened attentively, asked detailed questions, and seemed truly interested in helping me figure out the best ways to move forward. He gave me several options, recommending the least expensive/invasive approach, and then told me what to look for, what to expect, and next stages if the first approach doesn’t work. He was extremely helpful and entirely professional. Thanks, Seattle Foot and Ankle Center!!!” -Rhyan HL
