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.
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Geller is an excellent surgeon and a wonderful foot doctor. He is especially skilled with ingrown toenails, and his upbeat manner and sense oh humor make it easy to forget painful conditions you may have. I highly recommend this great Doctor. CDW
First time appointment for my son's ingrown toe nail and it was taken care of same day. He had to fix what the PCP had messed up. I was able to get an appointment right away. I'm super impressed and love the Zocdoc app they use!
Dr. Geller really knows his stuff. He did a more thorough evaluation than any other Podiatrist I've ever been to and he didn't automatically push for high-cost surgery like some surgeons would. Highly recommend!!
Great staff, X-rays done in office
Dr. Geller is a good doctor. He really took the time to listen to my complaints and was thorough. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a good podiatrist.
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's staff is kind, friendly and so efficient. It has made each visit a positive experience. I have and will continue to highly recommend Dr. Geller!
Dr. Geller has a great sense of humor! He listens and his treatment fixed my problem.
Ancillary Staff are courteous and efficient. Doctor Geller actually saw me 2 minutes early.
I liked the way he spoke to me about my problem. He is precise, asks lots of good questions and he is fast. He knows what he is doing. Although he is fast he is not hurried nor rushing.
Professional & a pleasure to talk to! No ego! So glad I was able to see him & discuss my foot concerns. Great visit!!!
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 providers these 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.

Dr Gellar and his staff were very friendly, helpful, and professional.
Dr. Gellar was very thorough, extremely personable. He is very professional and respectful. He seems to be an "old school" doctor, the kind that care about the well being of the person.
Dr. Geller was an excellent choice - I'm a Diabetic and this was my very first visit to his office. He really, really cares about the patient whom he is attending. Listens and patiently answers any questions from his patients, whether you're a Diabetic, like I am, or not. I would most definitely recommend this Podiatrist. I reside in the East Valley and let me tell you, it was well worth the drive to see Dr Geller. Should you need someone who cares about your feet - next time visit Dr. Geller's office for your foot care. Thanks Dr. Geller, I'll be back.
I really like the doctor. He was personable and fully explained his findings and the proposed treatment. The office staff was very friendly and professional. I will definitely recommend this doctor.
I felt that Dr. Geller did a thorough history with me, and appreciated his willingness to look at my issues and not just try to "sell" me some product. He took the time to ask questions and did a very good exam. Not your usual 2 minutes with the doc.
I received good service, and it was done in a prompt and professional manner.
Great staff & Dr. Geller is wonderful.
Both the doctor and the staff were excellent! Highly recommended.
Dr. Geller spent plenty of time trying to determine the source of my foot. He went through the normal suite of things to diagnose my pain including x-rays. His staff is very friendly. Overall, a pleasant experience.
Dr. Geller has always been a jovial guy, love his staff and always have a great experience.
Was highly concerned with resolving my foot issues.
He's excellent...and very thorough
Dr. Geller is a really cool guy, very relaxed and personable. I came in for some collapsing arches - run of the mill stuff I'm sure in the foot world, but Dr. Geller approached my foot pain attentively.
Very good at what he does. Takes his time. Assesses and asks questions. Finds an answer. I am living without foot pain for th the first time in close to a year and I only saw him today. Thank you
Dr Geller was very caring and informative.He didn't rush and that was really great since so many doctors seem to rush you through and you just feel like they don't want to take the time to listen to you about your medical problem. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Geller and his staff always do a great job!
Very friendly, knowledgable, and professional.

Always very pleasant
I was soooo happy to get a same day appointment because I was in a LOT of pain. I was very impressed with Dr. Geller's credentials and extremely pleased with the visit. He took care of my problem, an infected blood blister, professionally and with good humor. I really appreciated that he and his cracker-jack staff were there for me when I needed them. I recommend Dr. Geller highly and would return myself without hesitation.
It was ok. I was treated well but I expected more of a personality to be show by staff and the doctor.
It was great! After months of foot pain I was able to work the next day standing on my feet for 7 hours without any pain.
Nice staff and waiting area. Dr. Geller was helpful and informative.
It was the first time I had answers, real answers! Everyone at the office was outstanding! I drive from Maricopa and it is more the worth the drive. Dr. Geller is the only podiatrist I will ever see from this point on. There is really no comparison. I just wish I had found him sooner.
Very professional. No nonsense. Just got the job done in the best possible way.
I thought he was very professional and thorough. Good job.
Great experience and wish there were more docs like this on ZocDoc in the PHX area! Highly recommended.
As always. He and his staff are excellent!
so happy I found this guy and they have current magazines in the office, solid win...
He was able to help me with my problem and hopefully it continues to heal. If I have further problems we are still in Phoenix for 3 more weeks and I will go back to his office.
I was treated wonderful, great doctor and I would highly recommend him for any and all foot problems you may have.
He always does a great job and has great staff!
Uneventful. Staff was efficient and professional.
A no nonsense professional
Dr. Geller is very thorough and thoughtful and is probably the very best Podiatrist in the long line of ones I have had to see. Thank you, Dr. Geller
I met Dr Geller at PV wound center and new right away he was a cutting edge doc. I had a bad leg wound on my shin that went to the bone and had torn off a flap of skin. Other docs were treating it with antibiotics and ointment and gauze. He did a debridement and told me to quit talking antibiotics and treat the wound with medical honey which they supplied.all better now and I decided to go to his office to have him work on my foot problems. He's a real hotshot Doctor!
Very good experience but follow up needed. Thanks for being available on short notice.
You Zoc Doc after talking time to fill out all the medical information for Doctor Geller. The administration nurse MA when to your website to review all the medical information I filled out. They saw it BUT could not fined the botton on your website to print out my information. So either you don't have a botton to print so you can not. You should have one OR TRAIN the MA to show her where it can be printed out. Also I copy and pasted onto WORD and when it printed out because it is not INDETED or black only gray. Won't print out clearly or BLACK. Bottom line make it BLACK so you can copy and paste for a copy also so the Doctors can have a copy print out. OK??????
Great, short wait, efficient, friendly staff :)
He's professional; he's friendly and very knowledgeable.
He's down to earth, knows what he's doing, and efficiently does his work
My visit was phenomenal! The lady from the front desk to the lovely young lady who helped me check my data, and Dr. Geller. They were so accommodating and made me feel at ease. Dr. Geller was very detailed in what we should do to help my problem. I was very pleased, kudos to the staff. May their tribe increase.
Highest recommendation- Dr Geller and his team were fantastic! I was running late for my apt and they worked to accomodate me. The staff is professional and caring. Dr Geller was very thorough and his office is modern and high-tech. He also has excellent bedside manner. He was able to X-ray my injured toe in his office and pull up the images for diagnosis within minutes. He took time to share my options and helped me to select the proper path of treatment, which he then started immediately. After a year of pain, I am already feeling much better. Most doctors would have taken 2-3 apts before getting to the results I experienced today. I rarely make time to provide a recommendation, but I was extremely impressed and am grateful to Dr Geller and team!
Great, as always
He reviewed the x-rays and made appropriate recommendations for the deformity and did not push anything. I still wonder if the procedure would completely solve all my concerns, including the pain and appearance.
This was my first visit and so far so good!
I love Dr. Geller's staff - there is rarely a wait time and everyone, including Dr. Geller are very pleasant and take care of all my podiatry needs.
I enjoyed my appointment. The paperwork part is a giant pain usually, but this was made better by being able to fill out the papers in advance online. One of the greatest obstacles in setting an initial appt with a new doc is just picking up the phone. Regardless of reality, we would-be new patients are fearful of having to be booked out 30 to 60 days as is the case with some doctors. It was refreshing to see the appt availability online and then to see that the Zoc Doc thing actually worked, complete with reminders and all. . The office is nice. They offered me a bottled water (nice touch when it is 150 deg outside). I waited only slightly to be seen. Doc was professional and knowledgeable and did a great job of explaining my situation. He is not an outwardly jovial, laughing, joking type of doc, but you can tell he cares, he listens and he is thorough. All in all, I am glad I found Doctor Geller and look forward to being treated by him.
Very caring and professional, attacked the problem head on and told me the hard facts I needed to hear. Staff was fantastic, one if the best doctor experiences I have had.
Very Professional Reassuring

Dr Geller and his staff are always kind & courteous.
Overall good thorough visit. Accurate diagnosis (a bit surprising!) and a rational approach to helping the problem.
Dr. Geller really took the time to go over patient history and talk about treatment options. He didn't pressure me and was really good about answering all my questions. I had a strip of ingrown toenail removed and it was over quickly and the only little bit of pain was from the numbing shots. He did a great job.
He is very thorough and patient. He exslpains everything in great detail. I left his office with a complete understanding about my condition and hope for healing.
