  • Conditions We Treat

    We treat a vast number of foot & ankle conditions. Your feet, ankles, & lower legs have more bones than any other part of the body. As a result, your lower extremities involve many different parts that need to work in unison in order to create pain-free movement. If any one of these are not functioning properly, minor to chronic conditions can occur.

  • Products & Therapies That Help Our Patients

    We offer the most advanced foot & ankle resources available

    while also constantly searching for new powerful & innovative products & therapies.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

  • Testimonials 

    "Dr. Sarah and her assistant's care were magnificent. They were friendly, personable and I liked them both immediately. Dr. Sarah asked all the right questions to arrive at a diagnosis, and thoroughly explained a course of treatment."

    Grace S. - Greenville, SC

    "My daughter got passed around from one Prisma doctor to another. Not until we took her to Dr. Sarah did we get the attention my daughter required. There are no words to describe how grateful we are to be in her care and now my daughter is on track to be 100% again!!!!!!"

    Dean M. - Greenville, SC

    "I needed orthotics as I am on my feet for 8 to 10 hours per day at work. Dr. Sarah and assistant walked me through the custom orthodics process as well as helped with getting my insurance to cover them. I really had a hard time getting my employer to help with the process. So thankful Dr. Sarah jumped right in to help me."

    Jennifer G. - Grey Court, SC

    "I am on my feet constantly at my restaurant - up and down, up and down..... I tried the MLS Laser treatment and it was wonderful. My ankle sweeling went down after a few treatments and pain was gone by the last visit. Highly recommend it."

    Beth B. - Easley, SC

    "I had an abscess on the bottom of my foot and it hurt so bad I could not stand up! I called and Dr. Sarah worked me in that afternoon. She was so nice and explained everything she did to help me. I was so happy to walk out of my appointment on my own two feet."

    Billy C. - Duncan, SC

    "Dr. Sarah is absolutely one of the most knowledgable, professional, and caring physicians I have ever seen. I had a traumatic car accident over five years ago. I have seen several doctors and she was the first to actually care about my injury, determine what needed to be done, complete a minor procedure to reduce my pain, and continue to treat me to work towards a recovery. Her calm, caring approach immediately took away the stress I have had for YEARS!!!"
