Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) proudly announces the addition of Matthew McCammon, DPM, foot and ankle surgeon.

 

He received his Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.

 

Dr. McCammon received his Medical Degree from Des Moines University College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery.

 

"I was always drawn to medicine because of my love for science. I was working in an operating room and fell in love with podiatry," he said.

 

"I had two mentors during my residency. They taught me to be meticulous in surgery, always critically evaluate what I am doing and why I am doing it. They taught me to be a better podiatrist," Dr. McCammon said.

 

He looks forward to providing care to the region.

 

"My goals are pretty simple," said Dr. McCammon. "I want to provide the highest quality care and treat patients as if they are my family."

 

Several factors drew him to PMC.

 

"I was surprised to find a hospital of PMC's size in a small town. I was very impressed with the atmosphere and the state-of-the-art technology available at PMC," he said.

 

When he's not caring for patients, Dr. McCammon enjoys spending time with his dog, cycling, mountain biking and being outdoors.
