Your feet are the most precious possessions and unfortunately often not appreciated until pain develops. The decision to alter one or both with surgery is a serious one, not to be made quickly or taken lightly. Your care is always the first priority at Ankle and Foot Institute of Texas. The American Board of Podiatric Surgery in Foot Surgery and Reconstructive Rearfoot and Ankle Surgery certifies Dr. Matthew Cerniglia, the founder of Ankle and Foot Institute. He completed his undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University and furthered his post-graduate training at Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine graduating Cum Laude. He later completed a highly intensive two-year surgical residency at Hillcrest Health Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma one of the country's leading podiatric medical training facilities. Dr. Cerniglia is also experienced in pediatric reconstructive foot and ankle surgery for the treatment of congenital anomalies of the lower limbs in infants and children and leads bi-annual surgical mission trips to San Pedro Sula Honduras. While taking care of the local citizens in need he also teaches medical students, orthopedic residents, and practicing pediatric orthopedists in the fine art of foot and ankle surgical reconstruction. His sub-specialties include pediatric and adult flatfoot reconstruction, repair of traumatic injuries to the foot and ankle, and is one of less than 1% of all Foot and Ankle Surgeons in the world who performs and specializes in total ankle replacement surgery.

I found the office to be very clean and inviting. The staff was very courteous and helpful, I was seen in a timely manner. The visit with Dr. Cerniglia was very informative. He was not rushed during our visit. He took plenty of time to explain the proceudres that he planned to use to correct my issues and made sure I understood what we had discussed as well as offered me an opprotunity to ask any questions in the event he had not covered it in his conversation with me.
Dr. Matthew Cernigllia and is staff made my visit so welcoming and professional. Not only was everything explained in detail treatments preformed without pain or stress, but they went an extra mile in doing everything to make my condition better quicker.
I would recommend Dr. Cerniglia to anyone. He is knowledgable, has a caring attitude, and is a real professional. I drive over an hour to his visit his office; he's worth the drive.

Dr. Cerniglia was very detailed with his diagnosis. I felt very confident in the professional care I received. His staff was very friendly and helpful. I will recommend his office to my friends.
He is very knowledgeable and smart in his field for sure! He diagnosed an issue that I have been dealing with for about 5 years, not realizing my first doctor mis-diagnosed me. Hopefully this time around it will get fixed!
I liked him and his staff. I left feeling sure I would soon be painfree!
Informative, helpful, friendly and comfortable.
Everyone was very professional and accommodating! I actually went to a another Dr's office (on Azle Ave) and they were extremely rude. Until I called Dr. Cerniglia's office I didn't even know I was at the wrong place. Even though I was almost 45 minutes late, they still saw me. He was very informative and gave me options.
I was very pleased with everyone at the office. I thought the doctor was thorough and explained everything to me in term I could understand. I would recommend him to anyone.
Was 50minutes late for appt. gave no instructions, called office 3 times for instructions on medicine and they finally told me to ask the pharmacist that made up my compound prescription.
This was a worthwhile visit and I appreciated the thoroughness of the staff and doctor. I felt very comfortable, free to ask questions and satisfied with treatment. Highly recommend.
