Our Staff

At Central Arkansas Foot Care, we place a strong emphasis on listening to you and learning about your condition, but we feel that it is also important that you know about us, too. With this in mind, feel free to take a little time learning about us so that you will be confident that we are the right podiatric practice for you.

Our Doctor

Joseph M. LaCava, DPM, brings his vision of uncompromised excellence in podiatric care to each and every patient for whom he provides care. Dr. LaCava earned his B.S. degree in biology at Upsala College (East Orange, New Jersey) and proceeded to earn his D.P.M. at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine (Philadelphia, PA).

Dr. LaCava performed his residencies for Podiatric Medicine and Orthopedics at Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine and Podiatric Medicine and Surgery at Doctors Hospital (Texas). He is affiliated and certified with American Professional Wound Care Association.

Dr. LaCava is an advocate of patient education and has given several lectures in the community providing information on common foot problems and diabetic foot care. He is always happy and willing to provide lectures to the community and to the patients of any association or group that may wish to hold patient education forums.

Our Beliefs and Values

We place a strong emphasis on traditional values. In our modern world, it is easy to lose the personal, face-to-face connections that used to be so important to our society. Well, our goal is to bring that back with our style of personalized care for our patients. Your insights and feelings matter to us, and we view ourselves as partners in helping you with any foot or ankle condition that may be affecting you.

It is important to us that when you come to Central Arkansas Foot Care you see Dr. LaCava. Some corporate-style clinics may push you in and out the door and leave you wondering what just happened, but here you will actually talk to a podiatrist who cares about you and helps you understand every step of the process.

Our Services

We perform a wide range of podiatric services for our clients, while administering the first-class care and treatment that they come to expect. We aim to exceed your expectations on every single visit as we provide such services as diabetic foot care, ingrown toenail procedures, therapeutic injections, and in-office diagnostic ultrasound. Our in-office diagnostics save you, our patients, time and money, and that’s important to us because it’s important to you.

We assist patients with bunions, hammertoes, heel pain, Achilles tendinitis, and athlete’s foot, to name a few of the common foot and ankle issues we see. Our doctor and staff are highly-experienced and able to help you with any condition you might experience.

Our Promise
