Dr. Dustin Stroud – Podiatrist in Bradenton & Sarasota, FL

Board-Qualified Podiatrist 

It’s not every day you meet a native Floridian in our community. I was born in Melbourne on the other coast and grew up just up the road in Tampa. After watching two dear family members lose valiant battles against cancer, I decided a career in medicine would be the right fit. I am a proud alumn of Florida State University, where I received my bachelor’s in Exercise Physiology.

After graduating, I decided I needed a change of scenery and moved to the San Francisco bay area to attend the California School of Podiatric Medicine. “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco,” said Mark Twain. Truer words have never been spoken. My aversion to cold weather brought me back to my home state for residency, where I received rigorous and comprehensive training in medicine and lower extremity surgery over three years at the Miami VA medical center.

I am thrilled to be back on the west coast, barely an hour’s drive from where I grew up. I am motivated to keep my patients active and moving to ensure they can function at their desired level. When the simple solutions available have failed, I will develop a treatment strategy individualized to the specific needs of each patient. I remain committed to improving the quality of life of each of my patients and am humbled to participate in their care.

Away from work, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my loving wife, Karli, and our dog, Georgie, enjoying the outdoors and camping. I am a life-long Tampa Bay Lightning fan, and my passion for the game can only be described as “fanatical.” In fact, I enjoy playing ice hockey every week with my teammates on “The Gulfcoast Goons.”
