Christopher A. Robertson, D.P.M.

About Dr. Robertson

Dr. Robertson joined the Valley Foot and Ankle Team in 2015. His background as a competitive runner and his interest in sports medicine made him a natural fit for the practice. He incorporates his own personal experience in athletics and firsthand knowledge of sports injuries into his practice:

“I had been a high school and collegiate long distance runner, with bad feet.  My flat feet and painful arches earned me several trips to the podiatrist at an early age. I know what it is like to be a patient.  Sadly, I also know how it feels to be treated as a set of symptoms rather than a person.  That is why I strive to bring a personal, human touch to the care I provide.  I treat my patients with the dignity they deserve.  I believe in respecting the patient as well as their time: They will NEVER spend more time in the waiting room than with me face-to-face.”
– Dr. Robertson

Dr. Robertson’s interests within podiatry include sports medicine, biomechanics, orthotics, and surgery. He is also committed to innovative treatments in the field ofregenerative medicine:

“I am excited to offer treatments that stimulate the body’s own healing capabilities and help a patient avoid the need for surgery.  These are treatmentsincludeRadiofrequency Ablation, Radial Sound Wave Therapy and Amniotic injections”
– Dr. Robertson

Most importantly, Dr. Robertson incorporates his unique personality and personal philosophy into his practice:

“I believe in being approachable, warm and easy going. I introduce myself by my first and last name, not as ‘doctor’. I smile often, show my personality and use humor whenever possible. I welcome open communication and friendly dialogue.  I want your visit to be a comfortable, positive experience.”
– Dr. Robertson

A California native, Dr. Robertson received his undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of California in Los Angeles. He attended the California School of Podiatric Medicine before completing a three year surgical residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Philadelphia, PA.

Before embarking on a career in podiatry, Dr. Robertson’s previous jobs included: shoe salesman at a running specialty store, bus-boy, semi-professional poker player, barista, retail sales, secretary and waiter.  He ran cross country and track collegiately at UC Davis and was a member of the UCLA road cycling team. Ultimately,Dr. Robertson chose podiatry after meeting a local podiatrist who introduced him to sports medicine, biomechanics and orthotics.
