Spring is nearly here, followed soon after by sandal weather. Now is the time to address foot and ankle issues that have been put off over the winter to ensure healthy feet, especially in time for the Ridge Run.
Keir Foot & Ankle Specialists, 11628 S. Western, opened in Sept. 2019, and is owned and operated by Dr. Whitney Castle, DPM, a life-long Beverly/Morgan Park resident, and Dr. Sabrina Landers, DPM. The podiatrists offer a full-spectrum of foot and ankle care, including sports injuries, diabetic foot care, custom orthotics, gout, bunions, tendonitis, ankle sprains and pain, ingrown toenails, warts, flat feet and more.
The doctors seek to promote the health and well-being of the Beverly/Morgan Park and Mount Greenwood communities by providing high-quality and accessible podiatric care to address the foot and ankle needs for patients of all ages.
“We are comprehensive podiatrists who are trained surgeons for conditions of the foot and ankle, and specialize in sports medicine and wound care,” Landers said. “It’s been a whirlwind six months for us in the area. Other small businesses and our neighbors have reached out to offer support. We look forward to serving this community for many years to come, and we can’t wait to take part in the upcoming community events in 2020!”
“Local physicians have been really supportive [as the practice gets started],” Castle said. “I grew up in Morgan Park, went to St. Barnabas and St. Ignatius, and my sister and parents all live nearby. This is one of the few areas of the city where you still find multiple generations of a family; there is a tight-knit community feel here that you don’t’ find in other parts of the city. I wanted our practice to be a part of the community and become a household name.”
Drs. Landers and Castle have built their patient base on physician referrals, insurance company referrals, and advertising. Potential patients can contact Keir Foot & Ankle Specialists to determine if they need a referral from their insurance company. All major insurances are accepted.
