About Us

Founder Dr. Robert M. HatcherThe 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 founder Dr. Robert Hatcher began with a small, single-practitioner office in 1977. The practice has experienced steady growth ever since, adding surgeons Dr. Kirk Woelffer in 1999, Dr. Alan Boehm, Jr. in 2006, Dr. Jordan Meyers in 2014,  and Dr. Devin Grant in 2019. After 41 years of podiatry, Dr. Hatcher retired in March 2018 (read the letter to his patients here).

For your convenience, the practice currently has three locations. Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center moved to its Millbrook Road location in 1994 and was accompanied by a satellite office on Blue Ridge Road in fall 2015. To better serve the needs of the growing Triangle community, we relocated our satellite office to Holly Springs in fall 2018.

In 2021 we moved our Millbrook location to Wake Forest Rd. to better serve our patients.
