South County Foot & Ankle, Inc. For expert podiatric care


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 28 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. is a podiatric practice with locations in Warwick, Wakefield, and East Providence. With a team of four highly trained and skilled podiatrists, this practice is dedicated to providing their patients with the best medical care possible for both routine and complex foot and ankle problems. South County Foot & Ankle, Inc. (SCFAA) was established just shy of 40 years ago by Dr. Peter Lewis, DPM. Dr. Lewis is Board Certified by the American Board of Podiatric Orthopedics and Primary Podiatric Medicine. In addition to his private practice, he has been on the surgical staffs of several hospitals throughout the region and has also served as an examiner in Podiatric Medicine for the State of Rhode Island for over ten years. Dr. Lewis is joined by a close-knit team of professionals, Drs. Erik Meehan, Tammy VanDine, and, as of this summer, Dr. Jason Mallette. All are doctors of Podiatric Medicine and all are passionate about how the practice of podiatric medicine has allowed both them and their many patients to lead active (and often athletic) lives.

SCFAA diagnoses and treats all conditions and maladies of the foot and ankle (all 28 bones - and so much more!). Patients of all ages, from pediatric to geriatric, are treated here for everything from structural problems to breaks, sprains and fractures to arthritis to skin/tissue problems such as plantar warts to issues associated with diabetes.
