Professional Statement

Dr. Donna Gievers-Zuniga is a female, bilingual (English/Spanish speaking) doctor who has been practicing in the DC/ metropolitan area since 2002. After working in a group practice setting for eight years, she decided to go solo in order to bring back that “hometown” feel to her practice. Dr. Gievers-Zuniga’s biggest testament to her services is her innumerous satisfied patients. Dr. Gievers-Zuniga is originally from Miami, Florida and graduated from Tulane University in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology. She then went on to graduate from Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine, which is part of the prestigious Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (home to the Chicago Medical School) in 1999. She was extremely active in her class, serving as secretary of her class and both Secretary and Vice President of the Illinois Student Medical Student Association. In 2002, she completed a competitive three-year surgical residency program at the Washington Hospital Center in DC which included her serving as Chief Resident of Podiatric Surgery in 2002. Her training included general foot conditions, diabetic limb salvage, plastic and reconstructive surgery and specialty rotations at Children’s National Medical Center and at the Pima Indian Reservation in Phoenix, Arizona. (The Pimas have one of the highest populations of Type II diabetics in the world and are studied by groups such as NIH). She became Board Certified in foot surgery in 2006 with the American Board of Podiatric Surgery and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery. Dr. Gievers-Zuniga’s hobbies include running, international traveling and dancing. She climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 1997 with her mother whose trip helped raise $30,000 for Florida foster children.

She's always great at explaining and visually demonstrating the issue, is quick to pinpoint the issue and is considerate of the potential for overtesting/overdiagnosing. She gave me a simple solution for my recent issue (turned out to be a muscle issue) but gave me a prescription to get an MRI if it didn't heal up, but the little insert she gave me got me fixed quick!

while the time in the waiting area was a bit long I found out why when the doctor saw me. She was amazing. Very patient, knowledgeable and attentive. I didn't feel rushed and she shared knowledge that no other doctor had been able to give me. I felt like her only patient which is why I had to wait. She seems to treat every patient the same way! Can't recommend her more.

I chose Dr. Gievers-Zuniga because the location was very convenient. Also I lliked the fact that she was not part of a large practice. This was why I left my previous podiatrist. Her staff was very pleasant and efficient. I needed to order diabetic shoes and they had these on display and the staff member helping me with this knew which shoes were good for my feet and which would cause me problems.
