Dr. Shashank Srivastava, DPM, FACFAS

Podiatrist

Professional statement

Thank You for taking the time to read my bio. I understand that you have may foot and ankle doctors in this area and I am truly honored and appreciative that you have chosen me for your needs. I was born and raised in Bethesda, MD where I graduated from Walter Johnson High School. I grew up in a household that really stressed excelling in the sciences as well as performing community service. Naturally, being a physician encompasses both those principles. I went to Virginia Tech University where I studied Biology, Chemistry as well as Cognitive Psychology. From there, I west to the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia where I completed a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine. I performed my initial training at George Washington University and the VA hospital in Washington DC. From there, I did my advanced surgical training at Kaiser Permanante in Oakland, CA. I was blessed to have trained with some of the most prolific Podiatric Surgeons in the country including Dr. Graham Hamilton, and Dr. Lawrence Ford. Many people ask why I became a foot doctor. The foot and ankle while may seem simplistic at foist glance is actually a highly complicated and sophisticated part of our anatomy. The Human foot and ankle as over 27 bones, muscles, tendons, and joints. Many complicated diseases such as Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Vascular disease are manifested in the foot and ankle. I always found this to be fascinating and rewarding. I treat everyone from the newborn infant to the geriatric population. The conditions I treat range from everything from an ingrown or fungal toenail, to competitive athletes, heel pain, diabetic wound care, bunion surgery, esoteric skin condition to ankle injuries to performing complex reconstructive foot and ankle surgeries.

Dr. Srivastava was knowledgeable and really personable! I've had problems with athletes foot and nail fungus for years and it's something I'm pretty self conscious about, but he made me feel comfortable and he really knew his stuff. The staffwas nice and welcoming and he really took time to ask about the history of my issues and really explained treatment options and processes well. I have been to many foot doctors and i have to say this was my best experience by far! Went during a work lunch break and I was in and out in 40 minutes with first-time paperwork and all.

He wouldn't treat my warts topically and instead chose to give me an off-label treatment. It may have worked, but not to fully kill the plantar warts. Going to a dermatologist instead.

First time patient for Dr. Srivastava and i have to say i am very pleased with the service. I ended up having a different procedure that i wanted but i expected it based on my condition and he made sure iwas comfortable for the procedure. ( needles are just not my thing). Dr. Srivastava made sure i was feeling okay before,during and after by small talk trying to distract me from the procedure and answered all of my questions. The front desk staff were polite and my wait time was about 10 minutes and that included filling out paperwork. I will defiantly come back for future needs and refer him to others.
