Foot & Ankle Doctors in Frederick, MD (Thomas Johnson Dr.)
The office of Dr. David Levine opened in March 1989. As the practice grew so did the services offered. In October 2000 the practice expanded – moving to a new and larger location. Pedorthic services were added with certified pedorthists, Dr. David Levine and Matt Meitzler as well as orthopedic and shoe repair with Chris Logan. In 2013, Jennifer Bell, DPM joined the practice and then in 2016, Sana Shamim, DPM joined the practice. Two more locations opened – one in Mt Airy, MD and the other in Urbana, MD.
The atmosphere in the office is professional and comfortable.
Our staff is like family. Having long term employees provides reassurance to patients when they see a familiar faces visit after visit and year after year.
Our office offers unique services not typically found in a podiatry office. In addition to the podiatry practice, we have a specialty shoe store that has a large inventory of shoes for hard to fit feet. This provides us the ability to focus on people with special foot needs especially like those with diabetes. In addition, we have a full time shoe repair technician. He is able to modify all types of shoes for all types of conditions. Whether it is a lift for a shorter leg or other creative modifications, Chris Logan is able to modify, repair, and creatively solve all types of shoe challenges. We also have our own orthotic lab. Matt Meitzler, C. Ped fabricates and modifies all of our orthotic devices “in house.”
Special Services Offered
The services we provide are considered unique anywhere – and definitely unique in Frederick. The training and expertise of Drs. Levine, Bell and Shamim cover conservative and surgical management of all foot and ankle conditions.
In addition, the pedorthic services as well as specialty shoe services gives us the ability to help people walk and function more comfortably.
Our Approach to Footcare
People often think that podiatry is a specialty that only deals with the foot and ankle. However, many of our patients may have lower back, hip or even knee pain that might be caused by the foot. For instance, after undergoing a knee or hip replacement a leg length difference may result. This will indirectly affect the foot and the way it functions sometimes causing pain. Treatment could be as simple as a lift for the shorter side. There are many examples of both conservative and surgical management of the foot and ankle where problems and issues may have started elsewhere like the lower back, hip or knee. That’s why making an appointment for a thorough biomechanical evaluation is a great idea — today.
Our office treats patients of all ages from infants to seniors.
Because of our easy access and multiple locations, we are able to accommodate patients with same day appointments. Our three offices – Frederick, Mt. Airy, and Urbana – are easy to find, very accessible and offer plenty of parking.

Dr. Shamim is professional and thorough. She made sure I understood my current treatment plan and was also interested in my future care as well. I have [seen] too many doctors for my feet and ankle problems and she is by far the best. From now on all my foot and ankle issues will be cared for by Dr. Shamim.
Dr. Levine was very knowledgable, as well as personable.
Friendly and didn't make me feel rushed. Took a personal interest in my problem
This was a great doctor's visit! The front desk was courteous and took me in quickly. The woman who took my info and x-ray was so nice and friendly, to both me and my daughter. Dr. Levine asked a lot of questions and listened openly to my concerns, and I appreciate that greatly. He showed that he gave careful thought to my problem and then clearly explained what my options are. Great communication! Thanks!
Just very glad I saw doctor!! She has given me hope in my toe healing! Thank YOU Dr. Bell !!
She was informative and compassionate. I appreciate her explanation of all the options
Dr. Levine has taken care of my feet for years and my terrible callus and especially getting me to get inserts for my shoes and the convenience of being able to purchase or resole perfect fitting shoes & boots right in his office.. I would recommend his office to anyone with foot problems. He is a very caring person and his staff must like him too because the same employees have been there since I first started seeing him and they are always so kind and helpful.
Dr. Bell is a fantastic doctor!
Dr. Bell was wonderful. Dr.Bell explained the problems associated with my ankle and the possible procedures to alleviate the pain or surgically repair the joint. She was very thorough, honest and realistic. I' am thankful that I had the opportunity for a consultation with Dr. Bell
Dr. Levine truly cares about his patients. I was so happy with the care I was given.

Friendly, courteous, professional, caring,
I have had ankle injuries that I have been troubled with for years. Doctor Levine has been a blessing, Very professional and knowledgeable Doctor. Would recommend to everyone with ankle and feet issues.
Dr. Shamin was very personable and easy to talk with. She understood my problem and recommended the most efficient and effective treatment. I suffered no downtime and continued on with my activities as usual after the procedure. She is an awesome and caring doctor.
Was very pleased with my initial visit with Dr. Bell. She went right to the point for getting an accurate diagnosis by ordering a MRI and planning a consultation regarding the results, all in less than a week's time. Looking forward to the consultation and plan for treatment.
The practice is very well run. My care here has been excellent, and I'm very grateful.
Dr. Levine is JUST AMAZING....he listens to his patients (me) as to what my problem/issue is and takes his time and doesn't rush into anything. I truly enjoy my visits with him and i am always saying HOW AMAZING he is and that any body that needs a doc to GO SEE HIM...especially my running buddies.
I am a long time patient and have always been impressed with the professional but friendly atmosphere of the office. I recommend the practice to anyone who asks.
