As a podiatrist in Visalia, California the most important things to Dr. Florek aren’t feet, its the people who are attached to those feet. Growing up in Utah Dr. Florek always wanted to be a doctor. When it came time to apply to medical school he wanted to pick a specialty in which he could make an impact on disease but still have a close personal relationship with his patients. As he shadowed numerous different types of doctors one thing really stuck out to him was how happy the podiatrists in his community were, and how much they loved their patients and their patients loved them. It seemed like a perfect fit.
Four years of podiatry school and three rigorous years of residency training later, that is still what he loves most…the personal interaction with those he is treating. His special interests in podiatry include trauma, pediatric and adult foot and ankle deformity, and managing the complications of diabetes. Dr. Florek, along with his Wife and 4 growing children, are happy to call the Central Valley their home.
