Injuries and Sports Medicine


“Recurrent sporting and orthopedic challenges have meant I have visited podiatrists before. Dr Hoy compares extremely favorably with the best I had previously attended, from prompt, courteous and thorough front desk support to detailed history, careful examination and thorough explanation of the pathology and proposed management.” -Stephen S., MD

Whether you are a worker, a weekend warrior or a competitive athlete, injuries can happen at the most inopportune time.  The goal of treatment is to correctly identify the cause and effectively treat the problem to minimize downtime in your work and personal life.

“This was a best case scenario for what I was anticipating. Everyone in this office is smart, helpful, and friendly beyond measure. Even though I left with the knowledge that I’ll not be walking for several months, I felt good, and it was all thanks to the people at DFAC.” -Joshua B.

“Even though I was a new patient they graciously squeezed me in as soon as possible when I let them know the foot seemed pretty bad. Dr Hoy was professional and knowledgeable – and it was bad enough that he had to send me to the emergency room. He explained what had happened and gave me a walking cast to get me to the hospital hopefully without further injury. I will definitely go back in the future.” -Robert S.
