Need a Foot Doctor in Hutchinson, KS?
At the Community Foot Clinic of McPherson, we’ve always believed that you shouldn’t have to go all the way to the big city to get first-class foot and ankle care. Exceptional care should be easily accessible to everyone, especially near Hutchinson, KS.
At the same time, it’s also certainly true that the closest specialist isn’t necessarily the best choice for your foot and ankle needs, either.
If you live in or around Hutchinson, KS, the good news is that you do have an exceptional place for care not too far away—right here in McPherson. While there may be a few other clinics that are a bit closer to home, we strongly feel that making the 30-minute drive northeast to McPherson is definitely worth it for the high level of service, quality, and attention you will receive.
So why specifically should you choose us instead if you are in Hutchinson, KS? There are many reasons, but here are some of the big ones.
Conservative-First Approach with Advanced Treatment Options Available
Unfortunately, the truth is that many specialists in our field do not see surgery as a last resort, but as the actual goal or main option.
This could be for a number of reasons. Sometimes, it’s due to lack of access to advanced conservative therapies that would provide a “middle ground” between simple rest and physical therapy on the one hand, and surgery on the other. In other cases, unfortunately, it may be due to a conflict of interest (if the specialist makes more money on the surgery than on simpler procedures).
If you’re at your first appointment with a foot and ankle specialist and you feel like they’re already pushing you toward surgery without even discussing orthotics or other conservative remedies, that’s a huge red flag!
At Community Foot Clinic of McPherson, meanwhile, we do everything we can to restore our patients’ foot and ankle health without surgery if at all possible—even though Dr. Timson is himself an accomplished foot and ankle surgeon!
Surgery should always be a last resort, and we always put our patients first by providing some of the most advanced and effective nonsurgical remedies currently available at our office, including MLS laser therapy and custom orthotics.
Personalized Service and Individual Attention
Feet and ankles are incredibly complex structures and are completely unique. No two sets of feet are exactly alike—just like no two patients! It’s not just that conditions and symptoms vary, but so do personalities, hobbies, lifestyles, hopes, and dreams.
It’s our firm belief that, as a doctor, you cannot offer the highest quality foot and ankle care if you’re only willing to give your patients a minute or two of your time. People need personal attention and personalized care.
That’s what you can expect any time you visit our office. We don’t just greet you with a smile. We take the time to get to know you, listen to your concerns, answer all your questions, and explain your options fully. That way, we can put together an effective, personalized treatment plan that makes sense for you, putting your needs first—not just pushing you toward whatever treatment is the easiest or makes us the most money.
Building lasting, trusting relationships with the people and the community we serve is not only one of the most rewarding parts of the job, but also a necessary step for delivering the highest quality service.
A Dedicated, Independent Practice with a History of Success
Although Dr. Timson has affiliations and surgical privileges with several area hospitals and surgical centers, we are not employed by them. We are an independent, privately owned practice that operates outside of the major hospital systems—and have done so successfully since our clinic was founded in 1998.
This is a big part of what allows us to be so nimble, flexible, and attentive to the needs of our patients. We’re free to recommend treatment procedures the best align with our patients’ needs, rather than organizational goals or policy.
It’s important to understand that “independent” does not mean “less qualified” or “fewer services available.” Dr. Timson has been practicing for more than 20 years. He and our team are held to all the same licensing and educational standards and qualifications as any podiatric professionals in the state of Kansas, and as mentioned above our office is equipped with several therapeutic technologies you won’t find in many other podiatry clinics (or even small hospitals).
