What’s the difference between a podiatrist and a medical doctor?

When you’re hurt or sick, you know you should see a doctor, but what about when you hurt your feet, ankles, or lower legs? Is it wise to go see a regular medical doctor (MD)? While an MD is certainly capable of providing you an adequate level of care, the best foot and ankle treatment  is provided by a podiatrist (DPM, Doctor of Podiatric Medicine).
