Michael D. Kotzen, DPM

Founder/Chief Executive Officer
Home Foot Care, Inc. is a mobile podiatric service designed to treat home bound patients.  Home Foot Care, Inc. was founded in 2009 by Michael D. Kotzen, DPM, a podiatric physician and surgeon.  Michael did his undergraduate education at the University of Arizona where he met his now wife, Terri, a California native.  After Michael completed his undergraduate education he moved to Cleveland, Ohio to attend the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, where he received his podiatric medical degree.  In an effort to remain close, Terri, moved to Cleveland and furthered her education in Paralegal Studies, while they both endured the cold winters of the Midwest together!

After graduation from podiatry school, Michael and Terri moved to Houston, Texas for a 3 year surgical residency training program.  During residency training, Michael had an opportunity to provide foot and ankle care to home-bound patients.  By providing home foot exams, Michael saw first hand the importance of such a service that could help prevent patients from encountering more complex foot issues.  Michael greatly enjoyed treating patients in the comfort and safety of their own residence, and realized the abundant need for such a service.  After residency, Michael took his experience and knowledge of the house call business and brought it to Southern California, where he and Terri finally settled down. Terri shares her husband’s enthusiasm for mobile podiatry, and has joined forces with him to establish and grow Home Foot Care, Inc.   

Michael and Terri now have two small children and live in Valley Village, California. They are dedicated to serving the community by providing the highest quality foot and ankle care possible to patients who otherwise could not visit a podiatrist.
