Our podiatrists in Fenton focus on sports medicine and surgery. We are the team podiatrists for the Washington Wizards and the Mystics and consult with the DC United and many of the local college and high school athletes. Dr. Howard Osterman has twice been named a tops sports medicine doctor by Washingtonian Magazine and multiple times in the Top Docs category.

We are a nurturing and compassionate group of physicians and staff that care that our patients improve. We are committed to providing care in a way that creates a team between the patient and the doctor/staff.

We have the expertise of treating pro and elite athletes and then transferring the knowledge to athletes at all levels. We are trained in conservative treatment and all aspects of surgical care, including arthroscopy, if needed. We work closely with many of the top orthopedists, physical therapists and other allied health physicians in town.

Special Services Offered

We have an in-office orthotic repair lab and advanced therapy modalities, like EPAT, that many offices do not have. We are investors in our own outpatient surgery center that allows us to provide state of the art surgery.


We are located outside the main building and in the corner next to the All Set restaurant.

We are situated in downtown Silver Spring, near Woodside, Goodacre Knolls, Colonia Village, Shepherd Park, New Hampshire Estates, and Forest Glen.

  17. Doctor very helpful.

  18. I work in the medical profession, not as a healthcare provider, but I have extensive experience on the professional administration and policy side. I could not be more impressed with my experience at FASMA. I had been putting off seeing a physician for my foot pain, but when I received a referral to Dr. Tulpule it was incredibly easy to make an appointment through the website. The experience at the office was great as well. The front desk staff was courteous and professional, as was the medical assistant. Dr. Tulpule took her time to listen to my concerns, perform the exam and to talk to me about options for treating my plantar fascitis. The only frustrating part is that the care plan to treat the plantar fasciitis is complicated, multifactorial and not something that can be easily remedied. But that is an issue with the diagnosis, not the practice. I'm confident that Dr. Tupule will help me improve and manage the condition.

  19. Dr Gerres is awesome

  20. Made appointment on line. First visit with this Doctor. Long-time patient of FASM.
