Dr. Su completed a two year surgical residency at the Western Medical Trauma Center in Santa Ana, CA.

Dr. Su is Board Certified in Podiatric Surgery and Wound Care. Dr. Su, wife Jennifer, and son Blake reside in Chandler.
Dr. Su, provide a brief description of the services a patient can expect in your office.
We provide comprehensive foot and ankle care. We provide wound care below the knee and are affiliated with Chandler Regional Hospital/Dignity Hospital.
How long have you been in practice?
I have been in practice since 1995. I started with the United States Air Force from 1995 to 1998. I opened my private practice in 1998 in Chandler, Arizona.
When would I need your services?
Any time there is an injury, pain, unusual breakdown of shoes, formation of calluses, non-healing open wounds below the knee or misalignment of the foot or ankle.
What are the benefits to me of using your service?
I provide a comprehensive evaluation of all patients. Our body is always in-line from head to toe. Any type of misalignment will cause problems in the toes or vice versa.
Are there any new medical techniques that you are using?
We are providing the latest technologies for our patients’ care. The treatments are provided both inpatient (in a surgery center or hospital) and outpatient (in office procedures).
What makes you different from other doctors in your specialty?
Most [podiatric] practices concentrate on the foot and ankle. We evaluate our patients from head to toe. As I mentioned earlier, our body is in-line from head to toe.
Should I go through my primary care physician or can I see you directly?
Depending on the individual’s insurance, some may need to get a referral from a primary care physician and some may come directly to see us.
How long would it take me to schedule an appointment with you?
We have four providers in the office. Same day appointments are always available.
Will my insurance cover your services?
Most insurance companies cover most of our services.
Can you be found online? Where?
Yes, we have a website: www.advancedfootankle.com.
