The Beginning

Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center is a full service podiatry practice located in Raleigh, North Carolina. We have built a reputation of providing excellent and progressive medical care from people who care about you since Dr. Robert Hatcher began with a small, single-practitioner office in 1977. The practice has experienced steady growth ever since, adding board-certified surgeons Dr. Kirk Woelffer in 1999, Dr. Alan Boehm, Jr. in 2006 and Dr. Jordan Meyers in 2014. For your convenience, the practice currently operates out of two locations. Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center moved to its Millbrook Road location in 1994 and was accompanied by a second location on Blue Ridge Road in fall 2015.
