Richard Eby, DPM

Dr. Eby graduated from the renowned Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Eby has been in practice in the Chattanooga area since 1983.  Dr. Eby treats all conditions affecting the foot and ankle, but has a special interest in non-surgical cutting edge technology for foot and ankle conditions.  This includes enPuls (a very effective treatment for recalcitrant heel pain that involves NO downtime and works well when other conservative treatments fail), as well as LASER treatment for many foot and ankle deformities.  Dr. Eby has found the QClear laser to be very effective for treating ugly and discolored toenails in as little as one treatment.  The DIOWAVE laser is a deep tissue laser device that works particularly well for painful conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and neuromas.  The Diowave laser, along with the Lumix ii (a superpulsed laser device) is used in conjunction with vitamin therapy for painful neuropathy (a condition that is very common in diabetic patients and increasingly seen in NON-diabetic patients as well). 

When Dr. Eby is not caring for his patient's, he enjoys boating and travel.  He has a special interest in Central America, and has travelled to Panama and El Salvador many times.  In the future, he hopes to have a home in El Salvador for vacations and eventual retirement. On his first trip to El Salvador in 2010, he fell in love with the ocean, the volcanoes, the climate, and the people of this very scenic Central American country.
