Dr. Lawrin's Story

Medicine, and specifically podiatry were not initially Dr. Lawrin’s chosen profession. However, a near death experience in his late teen years made him reconsider his life’s ambitions. A podiatric physician successfully managed his severe foot infection and introduced Dr. Lawrin to what would be his future career.

As he researched podiatric medicine, he discovered how diverse the profession was; it offered a vast array of surgical, orthopedic, and conservative treatments of infants, children, young adults and older adults. Podiatry has proven to be an exciting, challenging, gratifying , and a rewarding career for Dr. Lawrin. After practicing podiatry for almost four decades, Dr. Lawrin continues to enjoy his patient encounters while striving to relieve them of their foot and ankle pain.
