"Our entire practice is devoted to the health, comfort and optimum functioning of your feet and ankles." - Ronald Ray, DPM
Dr. Ray was born and raised in the South Bay area of Southern California. He became interested in medicine after he sustained an injury to his left knee requiring surgery. Following surgery he underwent rehabilitation and became interested in physical therapy. He attended California State University at Long Beach and completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Therapy in 1985.
Dr. Ray worked as a physical therapist in several practices in the south bay area of Los Angeles. His practice involved primarily orthopedics and sports medicine with an emphasis on treating lower extremity conditions, especially of the ankle and foot. His interest in the functioning of the ankle and foot culminated in his decision to attend the California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco, California.
He has lectured throughout the United States and Canada on topics related to reconstructive surgery of the ankle and foot. He regularly lectures for the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. He maintains active memberships with the American Podiatric Medical Association, American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and the Montana Podiatric Medical Association.
Dr. Ray’s practice not only includes a strong component of reconstructive ankle and foot surgery, but he also supports a practice that involves the evaluation and treatment of athletes with a variety of lower extremity conditions. Dr. Ray has been an avid runner and bicycle rider for over 27 years. More recently he has become involved in training and competing in Triathlon. He has been able to combine his personal experiences in sport along with his medical training to provide a holistic approach to evaluation and treatment of the athlete. He has also received training in custom bike fitting. Bike fitting involves a thorough evaluation of the athlete both on and off the bike to produce the most optimal fit between human and machine.
Dr. Ray donates his expertise to local runners and triathletes assisting them in choosing appropriate running shoe gear. He has also works with local athletes assisting them improving their style of running to make them more efficiently. He has educated local sales personnel in several sporting goods stores on how to assist customers in choosing the most optimal shoe for their individual needs. His interests include working out with his wife Peggy as well as skiing, running, biking, swimming, hiking, camping, rollerblading, and reading. He has also participated as a volunteer in the Eagle Mount Ski program for individuals with disabilities.
