Our Board Certified Podiatrist, Dr. Terri Schmitt provides care to individuals with a variety of foot and ankle problems. Dr. Schmitt dedicates her practice to resolving painful foot conditions for her patients, including
- bone spurs

Dr. Schmitt is one of five members of the Colorado Podiatry Board, appointed by the Governor. The Podiatry Board exists to protect patients and maintain standards of care of Podiatrists in Colorado.
It is an honor to provide specialized medical and surgical foot care to my patients and to listen to their individual needs. Every patient is unique, and thus I strive to provide a treatment plan that is best suited for that person’s particular circumstances. Educating the patient regarding their diagnosis, long term expectations and risks versus benefits of reasonable treatment options is very important in the shared decision making process. It is a privilege to make a positive difference in people’s lives.
Dr. Schmitt hails from Indiana but always wanted to live in an area where she could downhill ski. Once in Colorado, she discovered many other great outdoor sports Colorado has to offer. Besides downhill skiing, Dr. Schmitt and her husband enjoy mountain and road biking, hiking the mountains and canyons as well as river rafting. When she can’t play outside, she spends her time reading and getting together with family and friends.

The past few months have been a very trying time for me because of the several medical issues I have had, all of which were leading to my foot problems. Our God was definitely involved when he led us to you. From the moment we met you, you handled our situation with the utmost professionalism. Even though the final outcome was the loss of three toes, everything you did for me prevented any further loss.
When you placed the ultrasound machine on my foot and you heard a strong pulse, we noticed how emotional you got and it brought tears to my wife’s eyes. That’s when we knew, “you are the best by far.” Not to mention that you truly care.
Words cannot express the amount of gratitude, great pride and everlasting faith that we both have in you. Your MA Grayson has also been very professional and caring.
Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for us.
With our deepest heart felt appreciation,
My daughter Marie received great care from Dr. Schmitt.
I have always been treated with respect by Dr. Schmitt and was seen in a timely manner. She explained the treatment options and always greeted me in a professional manner.
Dr Schmitt is a great Doctor.
Great Doctor & Staff.
I just love my doctor.
