Our Team is Passionate About Seeing People's Lives Improved

Each physician and therapist firmly believes in the value of excellent foot and ankle care and hopes to use their skills to impact their patients in positive ways—to see them free of pain and capable of living fuller lives. These are some of the stories of people who have come through our doors and left with new hope.

Healing the Children

Reina, a spirited 4-year-old little girl, made the long journey from her home in Honduras to Grand Rapids where Dr. Michael David, volunteering with Healing the Children, is working to straighten her feet.

Reina was born with a congenital foot & ankle condition called “clubfoot.” Despite Reina’s learned mobility, if the condition goes uncorrected, it can cause serious problems and disability later in life. Clubfoot was historically treated with surgery, but the operation can be gruesome and painful. Instead, Dr. David is using the Ponseti method, gradually remolding the feet.

Patient Testimonials

My feet are much better — I wonder why I waited so long to have your expert help with the callouses.

Two injections from Dr. Corwyn Bergsma have eliminated the excruciating pain I have suffered for over 14 years. I have had six ingrown toenail procedures, two surgeries, a general practitioner, three other podiatrists, an orthopedic surgeon, and a neurologist—and none were able to make the pain go away. I am more than happy—I am ecstatic! Thanks to Dr. Bergsma I will be sending all of my family and friends to Foot + Ankle Specialists.

I have always been very happy with the necessary treatments performed by Dr. Hulst. He is timely, concerned, and meticulous. I applaud Dr. Hulst and the team working alongside him.

My feet have quit hurting after the treatment at your office. No pain for the first time in over a year!

It has been four weeks and my right toe is doing very well. I am very happy with Dr. David. He did a great job and was easy to work with. The office staff did a great job, too.

The condition that was treated is much better and no other treatment should be necessary. Thanks for the follow up.

Thank you so much for the follow up. I am doing very well with lace-up supportive shoes and arch supports. Hope I can wear some sandals come next summer!

My toe is doing very well. I should of come to you sooner. Thank you.
