WHAT IS A PODIATRIST?
Dr. Jerry Langford is a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine – a podiatrist. Podiatrists are physicians whose years of medical training have focused on preventing, diagnosing and treating all foot and ankle disorders. Podiatrists hold one of four medical degrees that allow them, by law, to treat human problems by means of medicine, and/or surgery (M.D., D.O., D.P.M., and D.D.S.)

A podiatrist’s medical training is equivalent to that of other Specialists (ie. four years of college education followed by four years of medical training in an accredited college of podiatric medicine). Post-graduate surgical training (Residency) involves an additional one to three years.
