About Us

Dr Adams headshot

Foot & Ankle Medical Clinic provides comprehensive podiatry care to individuals of all ages in Garland, Texas, and the surrounding communities. Since opening the doors in 2005, board-certified podiatrist Scott Nelson, DPM, has taken a conservative, family-centered approach to treatment.

Dr. Nelson graduated from the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine in Independence, Ohio, in 2001. Throughout his four years of residency, he served the United States government in the South Dakota Black Hills before completing a three-year surgical program in Denver, Colorado.

As a family-oriented husband and father, Dr. Nelson fosters a warm, friendly environment at his practice. His dedication to providing compassionate care means he strives to treat patients using the least invasive methods possible.

That’s why Dr. Nelson and the providers at Foot & Ankle Medical Clinic invest in laser therapy, custom-made orthotics, and KeryFlex™ nail treatment to target conditions of the feet and ankles, such as ingrown toenailsskin conditions, and foot fractures, without surgery.

When Dr. Nelson isn’t treating patients at his small, close-knit practice, he enjoys hunting, fishing, skiing, and bicycle riding with his beloved wife and their three boys.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Nelson, call Foot & Ankle Medical Clinic or book online today.
