Practice Philosophy

As a senior partner at Ankle & Foot of Edmonds, Dr. Wardle has created a clinical environment that stresses high-quality care along with patient participation and comfort. He and his colleagues pride themselves on exploring all options in their efforts to resolve a patient's foot and ankle problem.
