Professional statement

Our chief Podiatrist, Mark Dollard DPM, has been at the forefront of innovation in surgical technique and general foot and ankle care. After graduating from Atlanta Hospital Podiatric Surgical Residency in 1983, one of the most premiere surgical residencies for its time, Dr. Dollard continued his distinguished career in clinical teaching, private practice and research. Distinguished as the 2003 Scientific Chairman of the American Podiatric Medical Association, he continues to provide continuing education to his Podiatric colleagues as the Mid-Atlantic States Regional Podiatry Scientific Chairman and Educational Coordinator for the Mid-Atlantic Podiatry Conference for the past 15 years. A nationally renowned author, techniques from his publications have been incorporated as standard procedures in many flatfoot and reconstructive bone surgeries. His publications are often cited in both Podiatric and Orthopedic scientific literature. His continued note as lecture and author has been recognized with appointments to the Faculty of Georgetown University Medical Center, Department of Orthopedics; and the Clinical Faculty of the INOVA Podiatric Surgical Residency Program. He was the first podiatrist to achieve complete surgical privileges in foot and ankle procedures in Northern Virginia. Dr. Dollard maintains full surgical privileges for foot and ankle reconstruction at the following hospitals: Inova Loudoun Hospital Center, Inova Fairfax Hospital Center, Inova Fair Oaks Hospital Center, Reston Hospital Center and Georgetown University Hospital Center.

These efforts have helped to assure the physiologic and emotional welfare of youth sports programs across the country. In recognition of these achievements, the American Academy of Podiatric SportsMedicine has appointed Dr. Dollard as the Chairman for the Youth Sports Committee. His publication on “ Preconditioning Principles for the Prevention of Sport Injury in Youths and Adolescents “has been a primer for reference in these training concepts.

First time visit with Dr. Dollard and all went well. Less than 15 min. wait to be seen and once in the exam room, Dr. Dollard came in within 3 mins. His "bedside" manner was great, felt like he gave meall the information I needed to make an informed decision about my next procedure. Nice staff too. All in all, it was a very nice visit. Will definitely be going back to his office.

I have mixed feelings about my visit to his office. On one hand: he seemed like a nice guy, he kept conversation with me while performing surgery, he seemed to make an effort to connect on some level, and I recoveredquickly. On the other hand: things seemed a little bit rushed, and despite making some attempt to connect on a personal level, I felt brushed off when it came to talking about my feet. This really came into play when he was performing surgery. I told him that I could still feel things, he brushed it off and proceeded until I cried out in pain -- at which point he gave me more anesthetic and everything went well. While I don't hold the miscalculation against him, I believe it could have been detected sooner had more care been taken. On a personal level, I liked Dr. Dollard, but I'd be hesitant to revisit his practice or recommend him to someone else. He appears to be a competent physician, but (based only on my experience) he needs to slow it down a bit and pay attention to his patients.

Dr. Dollard was very friendly and was willing to answer my questions regarding orthotics. However he stated that I took up my appointment time asking questions and I would basically have to reschedule ANOTHER appointment to get fitted for myorthotics. Very unprofessional for a Doctor to basically refuse treatment/services because he has "other appointments". Ironically I was in and out of their office in less than 30 minutes and they were $30 richer from my co-pay and whatever they billed the insurance company. As difficult as it is for people with families and full time jobs to schedule appointments, I find it very disappointing that Dr. Dollard acted this way and tried to put it on me because of my questions on the orthotics and insurance. Furthermore, it's also disappointing that the patient is being punished for asking logical questions regarding the products the doctor is providing and how they will help my condition. Unfortunately I WILL NOT be making another appointment and I WILL NOT refer this doctor.
