Foot problems are a health concern that can lead to further complications like knee, hip, and lower-back pain, all of which undermine mobility. The human foot is often considered the mirror of health in that systemic problems often related to age, such as diabetes, arthritis, and circulatory disease often can first be detected in the feet. Drs. Morris and Johnston have received significant training regarding common, systematic, and ongoing foot pain.
Dr. Morris was born and raised in Oregon, Ohio near Maumee Bay State Park. After graduating from both Clay High school and the University of Toledo, he attended the Ohio College of Podiatric medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. Dr. Morris then spent three years in residency training within the Henry Ford Health System in metro Detroit. During that time he received extensive training in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery.
Dr. Morris has since returned to the Toledo area, as he strives to give back to the community that has given him so much.
Dr. Johnston is a native of Findlay, Ohio, where he was raised on his family’s 150 year old farm. He received his bachelor’s degree in Biology from Bowling Green State University and studied podiatric medicine at the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, in Cleveland, Ohio. Following medical school, Dr. Johnston completed a three year surgical residency in New York City with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs – New York Harbor Healthcare. He joined Maumee Bay Foot and Ankle Specialists in June of 2013 and is happy to be home helping those in North West Ohio.
Dr. Johnston enjoys a wide variety of hobbies including playing jazz and classical trumpet, restoring antique tractors and classic cars, nature and automotive photography, and farming with his father.
