Podiatrist Joins Archbold
Friday, August 10, 2012
Podiatrist Dr. Viet Anh Vu recently joined the medical staff at Archbold and has opened Thomasville Foot and Ankle Center, a podiatry practice where she will treat patients of all ages for disorders of the foot and ankle.
Dr. Vu earned a Bachelor of Science degree in health with a minor in business administration from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. She earned a Doctorate degree in podiatric medicine from Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She then completed a residency in podiatry at Pinnacle Health Hospital in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
“I’m delighted to join the medical staff at Archbold,” said Vu. “I look forward to providing specialized podiatry care to the residents of Thomasville and surrounding areas.”
Because a number of diseases manifest first through symptoms of the lower extremities, Vu said podiatrists often detect serious health problems that may otherwise go unnoticed.
“Some diseases often associated with foot disorders include diabetes, arthritis, heart disease or kidney disease,” said Vu. “At Thomasville Foot and Ankle Center we specialize in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of foot disorders, diseases and injuries. We evaluate each patient to determine the need for diagnostic tests or surgery. In addition, we administer medications and prescribe physical therapy regimens.”
Dr. Vu will perform minor procedures in the office and major surgical procedures at Archbold Memorial Hospital.
Dr. Vu is now accepting new patients at Thomasville Foot and Ankle Center, located at 2024 E. Pinetree Blvd, Suite H, in Thomasville. To make an appointment with Dr. Vu, call (229) 236-3338.
