Charles Greiner, DPM, FACFAS

Foot care is a tradition in my family. My great-great-great grandfather opened a shoe store in the 1800’s at the corner of 5th and Main Street in Columbus, OH. That store stayed in business until the 1960’s. It served a special need in the community, helping people with hard-to-fit feet by fitting them in specialty shoes. It became apparent to the family that this was a growing problem and providing specialty footwear wasn’t sufficient. So, the family scraped together the money to send my grandfather and namesake, Charles, to podiatry school. My father, Larry, also became a podiatrist as well as my older sister and younger sister.
