Orange County Podiatrist
Welcome to Pacific Foot & Ankle Center
– A Podiatry Corporation
Our priority is to deliver quality care to informed patients in a comfortable and convenient setting.
We have 2 convenient locations: Our main office is in Laguna Woods and our 2nd office location is in beautiful Ladera Ranch.
Our Laguna Woods office is located in the Valencia shopping center off of El Toro Rd. and Paseo de Valencia right across the street from the Laguna Hills Mall and Saddleback Memorial Hospital. We serve patients from the surrounding communities of Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo, Laguna Beach, Irvine, Lake Forest, Foothill Ranch, Laguna Niguel, Ladera Ranch, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente, Dana Point and Laguna Woods. Dr. Petersen and Dr. Beirdneau see patients here Monday-Friday.
We are proud to announce our DIGITAL X-RAY which provides great detail and aids in diagnosing the most severe foot injuries and pathology.
We are also happy to announce our new 3-D IPAD orthotic scanner from KLM Laboratory. This machine allows us to take a precise 3-D image of both feet. This image is scanned and sent immediately to our KLM orthotic Laboratory where a custom orthotic is produced to help alleviate various foot pains including: plantar fasciitis, flat feet, neuromas, foot bursitis and tendonitis, high arches and Achilles tendonitis.
Our third state of the art device is the REMY Class IV laser which helps us treat onychomycosis commonly known as toenail fungus. This laser is located at both our Laguna Woods and Ladera Ranch offices. The laser treatment is not a covered service by insurance. We have reasonable cash fees to treat 1 infected toe to 10 toes. The treatments include 2-3 laser treatments to eradicate the fungus and return your toes to their happy healthy state so you can wear sandals and open toed shoes again confidently! The laser also has treatment options to treat plantar fasciitis (arch and heel pain), tendonitis, Achilles pain and neuromas prior to considering cortisone injections or other surgical procedures.
Dr. David Petersen is in Ladera Ranch on Wednesday afternoons from 1:30-5:30pm. We serve patients from the surrounding communities of Rancho Santa Margarita, Las Flores, San Clemente, Dana Point, San Juan Capistrano, Sendero, Esencia, Oceanside, Carlsbad, Mission Viejo and of course Ladera Ranch. Dr. Petersen is excited to be the first foot and ankle specialist practicing in the community of Ladera Ranch since 2010. He enjoys treating the active community of sports enthusiasts including: runners, walkers, bikers, soccer, basketball, baseball & volleyball players. He helps treat patients with painful heels, bunions, ingrown nails, fractures and ankle sprains. We also provide custom foot orthotics for all types of feet for children and adults. We perform surgery at Prime surgical center in Foothill Ranch, Newport Beach Center for Surgery and the Surgical Center at Saddleback Memorial Hospital.
