Dr. Stephen Geller, DPM

Podiatrist

Professional statement

Stephen Geller was born and raised in a small New Jersey town. Being from a small town, football, basketball, and baseball were the usual sports. As the youngest child, Steve never developed much of a sense of convention. He began skiing at the age of two and was taking adult classes in Colorado by the time he was eight. Basketball was given up for wrestling and baseball for throwing javelin in track and field. In high school the athletic trainer for football took Steve under his wing convincing him that fixing players was more fun than being a player who got hurt. This was Dr. Geller’s first exposure to sports medicine. With aspirations of becoming an Olympic skier, Stephen Geller attended the University of Colorado, Boulder. His calling to medicine ultimately got the best of his love for skiing. In his first year of college Steve gave up skiing to concentrate on his studies for medical school and he never looked back. In choosing a medical school it was his roots in sports medicine that made him choose Podiatry. He attended the California College of Podiatric Medicine, in San Francisco, where he graduated with honors. Upon completing his medical degree, Dr. Geller was the second class of podiatric medical residents to train as general medicine and surgery interns in San Francisco. After 3 years of intense post graduate training Phoenix became home. Within 5 years of private practice Stephen Geller, DPM was double board certified in primary podiatric medicine and podiatric surgery. Within 7 years he was appointed the director of the podiatric medical residency program at Phoenix Baptist Hospital and Medical Center. One year later he was well established on the national lecture circuit as an expert in wound healing and reconstructive surgery.

Excellent podiatrist. He accurately diagnosed the cause of my foot/leg pain. After visiting 3 other DPM's who did not help me, I finally found one who knows what he's doing. I'm very impressed with his credentials too.

I had a very thorough foot exam, and then Dr. Geller answered all my questions. He developed a plan of action for my ongoing Plantar Fasciitis and gave me a Rx for the inflammation. I made a follow -up appt. forthe next week to check on my progress. He also educated me on the reasons why my foot was not healing, and explained that before proper healing took place I needed to address the inflammation in my heel. I left feeling that Dr. Geller was the right choice for me! Very personable!

This is my third visit, and I have received excellent care at every appointment. I appreciate Dr. Geller's candor and straight to the point explanations. I spent years at another podiatry office, with no results and insufficient care. Dr. Geller'sstaff is kind, friendly and so efficient. It has made each visit a positive experience. I have and will continue to highly recommend Dr. Geller!

Kyrene, the receptionist was quick, efficient and very personable. She should get a raise. Dr Geller was right on time!! Very thorough. Addressed all of my concerns. He did an especially thorough physical exam, which I find rare in medical providersthese days. He ordered no unnecessary tests, recommended the most conservative (and cheapest) treatment for my problemThat also IMO Is unusual these days. Highly recommend the office, Kyrene and Dr Geller.
