About Me

Patients should receive the best care for their feet and ankles. This involves carefully diagnosing the entire condition, especially the root of the problem. Once diagnosed, a plan that utilizes conservative treatments should be used first, followed by more aggressive treatment methods once conservative methods fail. There will be a follow up with the patient to ensure a full recovery is made.

I am very pleased with the care provided by Dr. Caplis. He is patient, kind and thorough. As a new Patient I appreciated his patience in answering my many questions. He addressed 2 foot problems that I had been referred to his Office for by my PCP. I now have “ happy feet” and am pain free. Thank you Dr. Caplis for providing such excellent and compassionate care.

I can highly recommend Dr. Charles Caplis as an excellent foot doctor. For many years, I had painful spurs in my heel that had been bothering me. On my first visit, Dr Caplis made a number of lifestyle recommendations, lifts in my shoes to wear, as well as prescribing physical therapy. After a month of following Dr. Caplis' recommendations, almost all my debilitating pain from my spurs has melted away. My spurs have been tamed and I currently pain free.

I took my son to see Dr Caplis and his staff at Gulf South Foot & Ankle. Me son woke up with an ingrown toenail on his 3rd birthday. Not a present we wanted to deal with. Called the clinic that evening to get him in and they seen him the next morning. Staff and Dr Caplis were amazing with him. Explained plan of care to us and what to expect.

I saw Dr. Caplis 6 weeks ago for heel pain and I am so happy I did!! I never knew how important proper foot wear was. I now have orthotics that I can't live without. The staff was very sweet and I did not wait long to be seen. I have been sending all my friends and family there.

I was hospitalized on Tuesday afternoon. Never saw him until I was in the outer room being prepped for surgery on Friday morning.. Seems like they were passing the buck because I'm a medicaid patient. He made it a point to tell me " I don't take your insurance and I'm doing this for free".! After surgery he went to inform my wife that I was out of surgery, doing fine. then proceeded to tell her that this was a free. no charge! all while he was walking away. Very unprofessional!
