SynergyHealth Foot & Ankle History

Our History

SynergyHealth Foot & Ankle first opened its doors in January 2016. After meeting in medical school, Dr. Vetti and Dr. Patel came together to create a practice with a holistic approach to foot and ankle treatment by providing personalized care for each and every patient.

SynergyHealth Foot & Ankle’s primary care physicians and surgeons have always taken a “kitchen sink” approach to treatment, ensuring every angle of care is considered alongside the patient’s unique needs.

Our Mission

Our practice strives to provide quality ankle and foot care in a patient centered fashion to persons of all ages.

  • Giving our patients the time and respect they deserve.
  • Working with our patients’ other healthcare providers to provide holistic care.
  • Creating a positive, compassionate, patient-centered environment.
  • Being a productive and helpful member of our community through outreach and community service.
