Paul D. Alley, MD, FACS

Foot and Ankle Trauma, Reconstructive Surgery

Dr. Paul Alley sees himself as a family doctor who limits practice to orthopaedic surgery, and is dedicated to giving each patient the time he or she needs.  Dr. Alley is a surgically trained podiatrist who went on to medical school, then became a board certified family physician, then a board certified orthopaedic surgeon with a fellowship in foot and ankle surgery.  This is a unique combination for those needing orthopaedic care.

When not focused on foot and ankle disorders, Dr. Alley enjoys back-country flats fishing and music, especially playing the drums with the local band, “Against Medical Advice.” Dr. Alley has four children, Jessica, Nick, Jillian and  Andrew.
