Dr. Samantha Sklar, D.P.M.

Dr. Samantha Sklar has been working in the Podiatry world since high school in her father’s practice.  It was working with her father, and seeing his passion and dedication for his profession, that  inspired her to follow in his path.

Dr. Sklar first studied at DePaul University in downtown Chicago.  She then traveled to Philadelphia to study Podiatry at Temple University.  In 2015, Dr. Sklar completed her three year PMSR-RRA residency at Presence Saint Joseph in Chicago.  During her residency she learned how to perform forefoot, hind-foot, and ankle surgeries under many esteemed Podiatrists and Orthopedic surgeons throughout the Chicagoland area.

When not treating patients, Dr. Sklar will spend her time doing spin classes, kettle bells, and running.  She also loves hanging out with her friends playing the latest video games on her Playstation.  Most of all, she loves taking her cat – Bob – on long walks and exploring all the cool new restaurants in the West Loop of Chicago.

Dr. Sklar looks forward to getting to know you and offer suggestions on both non-surgical and surgical options and happily address all questions or concerns you may have.

Dr. Samantha Sklar describes her own bunion surgery and why the Sklar Bunionectomy utilizing the Swiss Compression technique used by herself and her father, Dr. Keith Sklar, corrects not only foot function, but offers a beautiful cosmetic post-operative result. Learn more at www.footfirst.com/bunion
