Did you know that there are 28 bones in the human foot alone? 28 bones that are vulnerable to sprains and fractures. 28 bones housed inside the very foot that bears the weight of our bodies and provides the means for our mobility. 28 bones that are surrounded by skin, tendons, muscles and all the anatomy we need to live in our vertical world. These bones, the foot they constitute and the ankle they support are the reason we need exceptional podiatric care. They are the reason we need South County Foot & Ankle, Inc.
South County Foot & Ankle, Inc (SCFAA) opened their doors in 2010. More recently in 2011, SCFAA expanded the practice from Wakefield to Warwick. Thirty years after opening Kent County Podiatry Associates, Dr. Peter Lewis teamed up with Dr. Eric Meehan, Dr. Tammy Van Dine, and Dr. Jason Mallette to become part of the SCFAA team. All four are doctors of Podiatric Medicine, and all are passionate about providing comprehensive and quality care to the community. Improving quality of life, and working together with their patients to address concerns are the primary goals of each doctor at SCFAA.
