VIRGINIA — Dr. Andrew Mekhail is welcoming new
patients in podiatry at the Essentia Health-Virginia Clinic.
“I chose podiatry after a family member tripped and twisted her foot falling down porch steps and breaking a bone in her foot. I was in my freshman year of undergrad and this incident introduced me to the field,” Dr. Mekhail said. “I had several podiatric surgeons offer help, guidance and support, which I am grateful for to this day.”
Dr. Mekhail earned his degree in podiatric medicine from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, and completed a residency in podiatric surgery at Ascension Macomb- Oakland Hospital in Warren, Michigan.
“Since I came into podiatry through being a part of the patient’s family, I take this experience with me in each new case I treat, always putting myself back into my patient’s family’s shoes,” Dr. Mekhail said.
