Why I Belong to ACPM

"I became a member of the ACPM to advance its goal of representing the full scope of podiatric practice including medical, orthopedic, and biomechanical aspects. 

Podiatry is a unique profession that combines all of these different aspects of practice and I feel it is important to highlight this to the public, prospective students, allopathic physician leaders, and healthcare administrators."

- Dr. Luke Vetti
I have been around podiatry my entire life. My father, sister, and wife are all podiatrists. From the age of twelve until I was in college, I worked in my father’s podiatry practice every summer in Delaware County, PA outside of Philadelphia and started my education both on various pathologies of the foot and ankle as well as the management of a medical practice.  After earning a BA in History at the University of Richmond in VA, I attended the Temple School of Podiatric Medicine and then residency at Crozer Keystone Health System.
My father had to retire for health reasons just as I was graduating podiatry school and I had always wanted to run my own practice back in Richmond, VA where I had gone to college. Immediately after residency I became board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine, which was key to being able to open our podiatry practice as board certification is required for this. As thanks I led a successful initiative to get ABPM added to the Virginia statute.

My wife (also a podiatrist) and I opened our practice cold in January 2016 in a growing suburb of Richmond, VA. Our business grew quickly and we hired our third doctor a year and a half after opening. Now, after four years, our group has grown to four podiatrists and is opening our second free standing location, and provides services out of four other hospital and ACO clinics. All along the way, we had the support of many allopathic physicians who helped us in many ways to get established and who respected us for the skills we brought to the table when we faced opposition from members of our own profession.

During this time, I also was elected Co-President of the Richmond Division of the Virginia Podiatric Medical Association and joined the VPMA’s Scientific Committee. I rejoined the Boy Scouts, now rising to become a District Commissioner and Council Alumni Chair. I was inducted to our local Rotary Chapter and became Team Podiatrist for University of Richmond Athletics. I look forward to strengthening our profession via the ACPM and APMA and to be an ambassador to the many physician leaders and healthcare administrators we interact with at the hospitals and ACOs we practice out of.
