Q&A with Dr. C. Jon Beecroft
Maricopa Foot and Ankle
Maricopa Foot and Ankle Center was opened in 2007 and since then, we have taken care of thousands of patients from Maricopa and the surrounding areas. Dr. C. Jon Beecroft, Dr. Alex Stewart, and Dr. Kelvin Crezee have all been part of this amazing team and continue to provide excellent care and make your visit as convenient as possible with in-house X-rays, 3-D CT scans, and Ultrasound Visualization to help diagnose foot and ankle pathologies. Over the years, clients have asked many questions and we thought we would share a little insight.
Q What is a podiatrist?
A podiatrist is a physician that has completed four years of medical school, three years of surgical residency, and generally treats everything below the knee including sports injuries, arthritis, ingrown nails, fractures, and diabetic complications. We also treat skin problems such as skin cancers, wounds and infections, and warts. We work closely with your primary care physician and other doctors to make sure your overall care is well balanced.
Q Why did you become a podiatrist, and do you like what you do?
You’ve heard the saying, “When my feet hurt, my everything hurts.” I like helping those with foot problems because it helps the whole body in the end. For this reason, I love what I do.
Q Do you take all insurances?
We wish we could because that would make things easier for everyone. We do take most plans, so give us a call or visit our website at mfaac.com and our wonderful employees would love to help you out!
