Foot Care for the Whole Family

When your feet begin to hurt, the pain and discomfort can be hard to ignore. With every step you take throughout the day, you always have that constant reminder that something isn't quite right. You may have tried to convince yourself that the problem will correct itself eventually without medical intervention, but we hope you're coming to realize that a little help from a respected podiatrist can go a long way in improving your quality of life.

The McDowell Podiatry Group, owned by board-certified podiatrist Dr. Brian A. McDowell, D.P.M, treats all types of foot and ankle conditions throughout the Sacramento area. Whether you're suffering from embarrassing fungal toenails, persistent bunion pain, or numbness in your lower extremities due to nerve damage, McDowell Podiatry Group has the experience and qualifications to get you on the road to recovery.
