Our Mission and Vision with Dr. Philip Radovic D.P.M. at the Helm



Date: Dec. 9, 2016 | Category: About Us

In the last 30 years, Dr. Philip Radovic D.P.M. has been enriching his professional and personal repertoire with advanced training, clinical experience, volunteer work, and continuing education. He founded the California Foot & Ankle Associates, a podiatric group specializing in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the foot and ankle. This has made him the first choice among patients whose lower limb and feet problems need to be medically or surgically managed, not to mention other clients who require sports footwear advice and cosmetic treatment.

We offer alternative and innovative treatments for a range of foot and ankle conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, hammer toe, heel pain, and ankle fractures, thereby giving patients a choice for better podiatric care. We do not limit our clinical eye and services simply to the management of symptoms. We delve deeper to determine the root cause and develop a treatment plan from there. Dr. Radovic invests time and energy to guarantee that our patients receive high-quality service and care.

It is our mission to provide our patients a choice and to give them the care they deserve. This means that we do not contract with high volume insurance companies, wherein doing so may compromise our goal of providing personalized, high-end care. We see each patient as an individual with unique needs and preferences. Treatment recommendations are only made after Dr. Radovic conducts a comprehensive history assessment and lower extremity physical examination. We want to ensure that you are presented with effective treatment options with the highest potential for a successful outcome.

We focus on our patients and not on the numbers. We have a friendly staff that can assist you every step of the way, from setting up your first appointment to scheduling your succeeding visits. Our open access scheduling sees to it that patients are seen on the day they call for an appointment regardless of the reason for their visit. A patient bored in the waiting room is not something that we like to see.

Whether the patients are grown-ups or children with foot and or ankle concerns, Dr. Radovic and our team of well-trained professionals are ready to be of assistance. Check out how accommodating and helpful we can be by giving us a call at 949-493-8020 or 949-786-1000. Want to read what our patients are saying about us? Or simply curious as to what we’re up to?
