Richard Hammond, DPM

"When your feet hurt and limit your ability to walk, even simple tasks become hard. I’ll help you eliminate the pain."


Personal Care Philosophy

"Listening is the first step in my care plan. Listening to your experiences provides me with insight that will help develop and design the best care plan for each situation. Our conversations build communication, trust and relationship.

"During your treatment, I will diligently work with you to resolve your issue.

"I’m only part of the equation in successful treatment and recovery. As with any therapy, repair or surgery, you are the most important person on our treatment team.

"Without your active involvement in the care plan – even if that means immobilization for a few months — nothing will work as well as it could.

"If possible, we will try other treatment options before we consider surgery."

The Reason I Chose Podiatry

"Actually, when I went to college, I thought that I would become an engineer, but that course of study was not fulfilling.

"After an aptitude test showed I would be a great physician, I started talking to physicians, chiropractors and orthopedists to determine which facet of medicine would be the best fit.

"During my second semester at college while living in my fraternity house, I contracted warts on the bottom of my feet from the shower. At that time, I was introduced to the art and science of podiatry.

"My podiatrist knew I was interested in medicine and invited me to his office to observe a bunion surgery. I liked what I saw and chose to specialize in podiatry. Dr. Lamendola, my podiatrist, continued to be a major mentor throughout college, grad school and even as I embarked on private practice in Ohio."
