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.

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.

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.

  2. The front office's responses to my inquiries about your practice, via the phone, were very welcoming, knowledgeable and were a part of my decision to choose Dr. Gerres. I send a thank you to your receptionist. Also, your office is so very presentable. It is clean, adheres to the special care that needs to be taken re: the virus. Dr. Gerres is all that I was looking for in a physician. I prepared much information for her in that I submitted a written outline of my medical hx. including my feet issues. She read it all and had incorporated it so that when I came for my first appointment her examination was thorough and covered in a precise way all of my written concerns. After my visit, I had a need to calll Dr. Gerres back with a question. Her response was immediate. This quick response is so meaningful. The sheet given to me at the close of my visit is very well done and helps a patient to have before them all of the salient points of the visit.. Dr. Gerres' thank you to patients for choosing her is warm and shows her respect for our confidence in her. I will certainly be a responsible patient and will refer others. Yours is a great practice..Stay safe.. [...]
