Meet James W. Ratcliff DPM



Dr. Ratcliff asks the right questions so he can quickly diagnose foot and ankle injuries, and prevent further issues. He is one of the few Bay Area podiatrists to offer cutting-edge treatments and techniques, including ShockWave/EPAT and Swift Microwave wart treatments. His goal is to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

Dr. Ratcliff's Must-Have Summer Shoes

OOFOS recovery footwear are my go-to! Made with revolutionary OOfoam technology, they reduce pressure on your feet and joints, and leave you feeling recharged. With remote work here to stay, I recommend buying a dedicated pair for inside, too.
