Dr. Kurte Shepherd, Podiatrist at Elite Foot Care of Texas

Dr. Kurte Shepherd, Podiatrist

I’m Dr. Kurte Shepherd, a licensed podiatrist who’s been caring for Texas family’s feet  here at Elite Foot Care of Texas for over  12 years. In that time I’ve been able to help families diagnose, cope and correct many of the lower leg problems that come from various daily activities or chronic illness. When I opened my doors in 2001 my goal was to serve the community I’m part of as best I could. It was my dream to create a comfortable and caring environment. From what I can tell, we’re succeeding on that front every day.

One of the things I’m most proud of is the incorporation of aesthetic treatments for feet into my practice. When I began to see the additional services I could offer to my community to help keep everyone’s feel healthy and looking wonderful, I jumped at the opportunity to train and offer these services to my patients. We now offer cosmetic treatments such as laser toenail fungus removal, chemical peels for feet, and massage therapy.
