Healthy feet are imperative to your ability to lead a normal, happy, and active life.

Prior to doing any medical treatment, Dr. Norman and his team will perform a thorough examination of your foot and body to help understand the underlying cause of your pain and/or injury. Depending on the outcome of this exam, the most common treatments performed by Coastal Podiatry include prescription medications, injections, nail care, shockwave therapy, foot surgery, wart removal, bunion surgery, and diabetic foot care. 

Ultimately, our main objective is to ensure that each step you take is free of pain so that you have unlimited access to the best quality of life. To learn more about our practice or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Norman, give Coastal Podiatry in Pismo Beach, CA a call today at 805-773-3668.

Patient Testimonials

  • "I am an RN with 45 years experience. I took my elderly neighbor with diabetes to dr Norman. She had a large ulcerated area that was infected on the bottom of her foot. It was deep, swollen, and oozing. Dr Norman debrided the area, treated her for the infection and had us return weekly. She had previously lost the big toe on that foot so it was vitally important to save this infected area. Dr Norman was professional,kind and caring. He was able to get her infection under control, treat the ulcerated area and get it to heal, and graft the bottom of her foot to regenerate skin over the ulcerated area. He saved her foot. I would recommend him without reservation. Because I am an RN , I have very high expectations for physicians and Dr Norman exceeded what I expected."

  • "Where to start well I guess the beginning I haven't been to a podiatrist in years and have needed to but my experience hasn't been good to say the least. So I decided to make a couple of calls to make an appointment oh no you have to have a referral from your primary care physician call then only to not get a call back and when following up they gave me the doctor they had referred me to so I call get a message machine leave a message as you can guess no call back. FAST FORWARD Call Dr. Norman's office and his staff was fantastic making my appointment when I got there NO WAITING matter of fact ahead of schedule so I'm happy right, doctor comes in great personality and so knowledgeable in explaining everything it was almost to good to be true 5 stars isn't enough I don't think you can go wrong"

  • "Both my son and I have recently seen Dr. Norman for heel pain. Dr. Norman is very personable and takes time to listen to your complaints, diagnose and discuss options. Neither of our appointments were rushed and the wait time was not that long. The treatments for my son and I were different but both worked. I'm pretty particular when it comes to doctors and will only continue to see those who are personable, take time to listen to you, discuss options, and not rush you out the door. In addition, the doctor's staff has to be responsive, answer the phone, return calls, and be personable. Dr. Norman rates an "A" in all those areas. I would highly recommend Dr. Norman."
