About the Practice
Deer Park Podiatry is dedicated to providing patients with quality foot care. The practitioners’ knowledge, training, and experience have made them respected members of the medical community. The goal of this practice is to provide the proper diagnosis, treatment options, and strategies to prevent future problems with your feet. 
About the Clinic
After 27 years at the Yorkville Foot Clinic, David Shaw and the entire staff have relocated to their brand new facility at Deer Park Podiatry. The new facility features five examination rooms which allow practitioners to see patients quickly, minimizing the wait time as much as possible. Digital x-rays are taken and viewed within the same visit. Surgical procedures are performed on-site. We offer such services as: nail care, diabetic foot care, callus care, wart treatment, ingrown nail treatment, shockwave therapy, ultrasound, and custom-made orthotics. House call visits are offered for those that are physically unable to come in.

A podiatry assistant since 1990, Dina has come to realize that foot care plays an important role in the overall wellness of the body. She feels privileged to work with caring professionals who share this belief.


Tula has been an assistant since July 1996. Since then, she has come to fully appreciate this branch of medicine in all of its aspects. She firmly believes that maintaining healthy feet is just as essential as the rest of the body; “it should not be the last thing we think of!”


John recently joined the podiatry team and appreciates the consistent interaction with patients. He is quickly gaining knowledge of the feet and the important function it performs within the body and our daily activities.
