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.

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.

Patient reviews for Dr. Mark Dollard
Dr. Dollard listened to my concerns and read over my history. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. He even knew the previous podiatrist I had seen through Kaiser. He explained to me what may be the cause of my continued foot pain and is sending me to get a MRI so he can make an informed decision on treatment.
Dr. Dollard is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He quickly diagnosed my problem and was able to recommend the best treatment for me. I would definitely recommend him and come back again, but I doubt I will need to after his effective treatment.
Quick diagnosis of my issue and discussed alternatives. should have gone to him sooner.
Great bedside manner. Very knowledgeable and takes his time in explaining everything.
My visit with Dr. Dollard was excellent; his bedside manner was terrific - very gentle and thorough. He explained everything very well. He took great care of me. I'll return soon!
Dr. Dollard was pleasant and listened to my concerns. He was able to diagnosis my problem and get me started on a treatment plan during the office visit. Overall it was a good experience.
Friendly, efficient front desk. Short wait to be seen but staff were attentive and kept me updated. Dr. Dollard was thorough and patient and addressed all my concerns. I highly recommend this practice.
I am very impressed with Dr Dollard knowledge and professionalism!
He's wonderful! Highly recommend! Personable, down-to-earth, and an expert in his field. Got the sense he genuinely cares for his patients...a rarity!
Dr. Dollard was nice. I came into the office with a foot injury which turned out to be a fracture. I was given two options and he helped me weigh out the pros and cons for both. I ended up with getting a cast for it to heal and he answered any questions I had regarding care for my injury.
There are times when you have to be leery of great reviews, but the reviews that were given to Dr. Dollard was spot on. His staff was professional and his bedside manner was on point. I am so glad I found him. Will most definitely be going back and also will refer him to friends.
Dr. Dollard is an amazing professional! We’ve been to his office with a toenail issue of our child and Dr. Dollard did incredible job so that the child barely noticed the surgery and was really surprised when it finished much faster than expected.
No complaints. Perfect.
Dr. Dollard was fantastic. I was taken right back and he spent a lot of time explaining my condition to me. His credentials are not only top notch, but also fascinating.
I got seen quickly and got a diagnosis and treatment that worked very quickly! Dr. Dollard is great!
Dr. Dollard was very professional and made me feel at ease with the decision to have foot surgery...pre op...surgery and post op were all pleasant experiences...THANKS Dr. Dollard :)
Dr Dollard was wonderful. He took care of my issue immediately and was very professional. Would gladly recommend him to anyone needing foot care.

This was my first appointment. I thank Dr. Dollard and his staff for Excellence in Customer Service. Linda L.
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 me all 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.
He is best !!!!!!!!
Really enjoyed my visit. highly recommend him.
Very professional , knowledgeable and practicality
The wait was quick and the care was exceptional!!!!
Quick, thorough, professional and friendly
Very professional and friendly. Office staff and assistant were very helpful and friendly.
Dr Dollard fixed my foot several years ago and he did a great job, did a great job this time as well.
Good visit, all questions answered.
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 recovered quickly. 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 my orthotics. 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.
Very good . Honest , professional and knowledge with experience.
Everything was perfect.
I am very pleased with the quality of service provided. I did not have to wait to get an appointment and to see the doctor when I got there, thanks.
I will return to see Dr Mark Dollard as needed and will definitely recommend him to my friends.
I would highly recommend Dr. Dollard. Everything about my appointment was first rate!
