The Silver Spring, MD office opened on July 1, 1988 and grew very quickly. On July 1, 1997 we expanded the office from our previous location with two treatment rooms to the current location where we have five patient treatment rooms, an ambulatory surgery room that is CMS-Medicare Certified, OR preparation room, and doctor’s office. Additionally, we have an area that we perform our computerized gait analysis. Our office provides two Board Certified doctors to treat your foot and ankle needs: Dr. David Freedman and Dr. Hetal Kathrotiya-Mago.

Our foot & ankle doctors in Silver Spring, MD pride ourselves as being warm, gentle, kind and caring. We treat each patient with respect and let them know that we will listen to their concerns, provide the necessary time and a treatment plan to help resolve their foot, ankle and/or lower leg problems.
