Congratulations, Dr. Goecker!

Stephen D. Lasday, DPM Podiatrist Sarasota and Bradenton

Here at West Coast Podiatry, we’re proud to announce that our very own Robert Goecker, DPM has been named Chief of Podiatric Foot and Ankle Surgery at Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

Dr. Goecker has truly won the respect of the medical community in Southwest Florida since his arrival over a decade ago. After practicing with the now-retired Dr. David Corbett for several years, he became part of the West Coast Podiatry family and is a partner.

Dr. Goecker has been performing foot and ankle surgeries at Sarasota Memorial Hospital since 1999, and frequently lectures nationally for other physicians on topics related to foot and ankle health. He is known as the “doctor’s foot doctor.” When our medical colleagues need personal advice for their families, more often than not, they end up in Dr. G’s treatment chair. And although he didn’t write the book on foot and ankle surgery, he contributed to it.

The entire crew at West Coast Podiatry is proud to have one of our partners holding my old post at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. The fact that he’s following in my footsteps (I was Chief of our section from 2000-2008)  adds to the honor of being named to this position.  Footsteps…get it!  Podiatry pun.    🙂

All kidding aside, we’re thrilled for Dr. Goecker. It’s great to see the community and the other physicians in town recognizing the hard work we put in to making sure you’re receiving the best quality care from our physicians and staff here at West Coast Podiatry. Dr. Goecker, Dr. Z and I are here for you and we are committed to your foot and ankle health.

Whether you’re dealing with foot pain, or perhaps you’re a runner, diabetic, suffering from heel spurs, or other foot & ankle difficulties… or are otherwise just looking to have happy, healthy feet, we hope you’ll give us the opportunity to take great care of you. Don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment in our Bradenton Podiatry office or Sarasota Podiatry office.
