When you’re dealing with foot and ankle problems, where should you turn? While your primary doctor may be great for treating the flu or a fever, a podiatrist is going to be the ideal specialist to turn to when foot and ankle issues arise. Here at Pivotal Foot And Ankle Surgeons, our team of board-certified podiatrists provides comprehensive foot and ankle care to St. Joseph, Kansas City, and Independence, MO, communities.
