About Dr. Gary Scheinin

Dr. Gary Scheinin completed his medical education in San Francisco. After completing his surgical residency in Southern California, Dr. Scheinin returned to the Bay area. This unique region with surrounding mountains and proximity to the ocean and our family members made this an optimal place to start a practice and raise a family.

Since 1978 Dr. Scheinin has been a member of the medical community providing his patients with the latest techniques in medical and surgical treatments for conditions of the foot and ankle. He has trained new practitioners during their medical and surgical Residency programs from the Palo Alto V.A., Kaiser and Stanford University.

With the ongoing changes in medical economics, it has become a challenge to maintain a successful practice without degrading the quality of care. However, with the invaluable help of excellent office staff, the practice has overcome these difficulties and Dr. Scheinin's approach to patient care has been preserved over the years, to provide quality and timely medical care to his patients. Dr. Scheinin was one of the first in Northern California to adopt theLapiplasty-3D Bunionectomy which has revolutionized bunionectomy correction.
