The Foot Specialty Practice Staff

Carl Jean, DPM, FACFAS

Dr. Carl Jean has been practicing podiatry since 2007. He always knew he wanted to be a Doctor but chose podiatry due to the vast opportunities that this specialty afforded. Unlike many other medical specialties, podiatrists are trained in a region of the body and not just a system. As a doctor and surgeon, Dr. Jean is able to treat various conditions of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg. Based on this understanding, Dr. Jean is able to treat various skin problems, bone and joint problems, certain types of painful nerve conditions, and other soft tissue abnormalities. He also treats biomechanical problems that occur as a result of different types of pathologic foot and ankle conditions. Dr. Jean practices both Podiatric Medicine and Podiatric Foot & Ankle Surgery. .

Dr. Jean is considered by his peers to be a talented and skilled surgeon. However, he takes pride mostly in his personable approach to patient care. He believes having a great bedside manner allows for open communication with his patients. He feels that the atmosphere created in his office is that of a family-type of environment. Dr. Jean will spend the necessary time that it takes to ensure that patients understand their problems and/or conditions. He also takes the necessary time to discuss the various conservative and surgical treatment options that may be available. Dr. Jean feels it is very important to be up front and honest with his patients, just as he would be with any family member.

Dr. Jean has worked with “The Foot Specialty Practice” since 2008. He assumed the position as principal owner in 2010. Dr. Jean currently works with Dr. Tyrone Johnson and Dr. Roxann Clarke.

Dr. Jean has a great zeal for life. He loves to travel. He keeps himself busy playing sports such as basketball and soccer. He also likes to run. Most of all, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife and son. Dr. Jean is proud to say at that he practices podiatry because he loves it. He actually feels that he was meant to do this. He feels that podiatry allows him the privilege to improve peoples lives in a meaningful way.
