Episode 03: What the Foot Do You Know
Dr Dennis Timko DPM Podiatrist
Dr. Dennis Timko Podiatrist takes a more conservative approach to his treatment and has a passion for diabetic injuries, neuropathy foot pains, pediatric feet issues, and will soon be double board certified. He has three years of surgical training and has special certification in wound care. He is currently learning more about herbal medicines and vitamin therapies and would like to offer a more complete approach to his patient’s needs. Dr. Timko’s story for becoming a podiatrist is the kind that makes doctors special. He was a runner and witnessed plenty of ankle and foot injuries and shadowed podiatrists for a few summers and that is when he realized, this should be my career. I didn’t know this but the school he went to was an Osteopathic school in Iowa. First two years they all shared the same classes and then they switched to their specialties in year three.
Dr. Timko has a podiatrist podcast called WTF – What the Foot, is an aspiring Videographer, wordpress enthusiast, father, baseball addict and another surprise half way through the episode. He gives advice on tips and options to start up a new podiatry office, location, social media marketing and he says to just “ask the patient” for a referral. He also explains MACRA for Medicare reimbursement and the outlook of his profession in the next 5 years.
Key to his success, I don’t want my patient to leave the office until they can explain back to me what the problem is
