Whether you’re facing a sudden injury or dealing with a painful issue that doesn’t seem to be getting better, deciding where to go and who to trust with your care can be difficult. The choice involves answering questions about which doctors are the best, how far you’ll have to drive to see them, and whether they take your insurance.
Foot Specialist Near Me
In the case of a foot or ankle injury, you probably begin by searching “foot specialist near me,” “ankle specialist near me,” or “foot and ankle specialist near me.” You’ll definitely get some results, but you might wonder if the closest option is the best option for you.
You could widen your search by looking for “foot and ankle specialists Utah,” “Utah foot and ankle,” or even “podiatrist Utah.” But is regularly driving dozens of miles each way for appointments even an option for you? If you’ve injured your right foot and can’t quickly switch between the gas and the brake, you’ll be begging and pleading (or paying) for help.
For Tooele locals and residents in the surrounding area, however, the search for ‘”foot specialist Tooele,” “Tooele foot and ankle,” “podiatrist Tooele,” or “Tooele podiatry” delivers one of the best doctors and surgeons in Utah, and he’s right in your backyard — Dr. Jason Dickerson, Podiatrist.

Heiden Orthopedics, Tooele Podiatry
At our Tooele office, most of Dr. Dickerson’s surgeries are done right across the hall. Not only is this easier in terms of communication and navigation, but because it’s a Surgery Center rather than a hospital, costs are typically more affordable.
Most injury casting and fitting of durable medical equipment (DME) take place here in the clinic, and imaging services like MRIs are done right across the parking lot. Heiden Orthopedics’ Tooele location is truly designed with patient convenience in mind.
Dr. Dickerson and all our Tooele doctors were born and raised in Salt Lake City, so they know our communities well. Dr. Dickerson loves this area and all it has to offer. He especially enjoys skiing and hiking. Sometimes he’s even lucky enough to go on a few snowmobile rides with pro and semi-pro riders!
Dr. Dickerson recently increased his hours at our Toole location, so he always has room in his schedule for new injuries and patients. In fact, most patients get same-week appointments. Dr. Dickerson also speaks fluent Spanish.
