Dr. Dimond is the newest addition to our staff of highly trained and professional Podiatrists now serving the Central Valley. Dr. Dimond grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah in a big family where he spent his summers working for his Father’s construction company. While studying at the University of Utah, he worked at a running shoe company where he worked closely with many of the local podiatrists. It was during this time that he decided to become a podiatrist. He attended the California School of Podiatric Medicine in Oakland, CA and performed his surgical residency at St. Mary’s Medical Center in San Francisco where he worked at two level 1 trauma centers and multiple hospital systems. His podiatric interests include trauma, sports medicine, foot and ankle deformities and managing the complications of diabetes. Dr. Dimond, along with his wife and 2 daughters, are happy to be in the Central Valley and he looks forward to caring for the people of Porterville and Visalia.
