Dr. Easley's Care Philosophy

I enjoy the challenge of helping patients with foot and ankle problems including arthritis tendon disorders or ruptures and sports injuries. While my focus is my clinical practice I keep my orthopaedic knowledge current by regularly participating as faculty in national and international orthopaedic foot and ankle conferences conferences that frequently prompt me to bring advances to help the patients in my practice. I also continue to study many of the problems through dedicated foot and ankle research and share my clinical surgical and research experience with national and international colleagues the surgeons who attend the meetings and the residents and fellows that I train each year.

I fill like this M.D. is very sure of his self and is very experienced. Dr. Easley and his staff have given me great care.
He only has appointments on Tuesday & Thursday, & just getting through the phone announcement before getting to a human is a lengthy annoying procedure. Difficult to schedule unless far in advance. If you do not want a recommendation for surgery, do not make an appointment with a surgeon.

Referral from numerous doctors for ankle joint issues. Ankle was so far gone that had to be replaced in 2013. 6'5" and 300lb and 4 years later ankle is great with no pain. Dr. Easley is highly skilled and explained the progression from surgery, recovery, and rehab in detail. Office and hospital top notch. I recommend to at minimum seek Dr. Easley for his opinion. Its worth the travel time.

I had a badly deteriorated arthritic ankle that would have prevented most walking and hiking. Looking for a better solution than an ankle frozen in position in position with screws, I asked Duke Foot and Ankle specialist Dr. Mark Easley to evaluate me for a STAR prosthesis. Dr. Easley and Dr. Nunley installed the prosthesis and I recovered with full usage and flexibility for 9 years, hiking and climbing over rugged terrain. This demonstrated the most excellent, professional and pleasant result.

Doc Easley provided excellent care to me before, during and after! He tried preventative measures before surgery. My surgery went smoothly, he provided excellent care and I followed his post op instructions exactly and have had no issues. His staff is attentive and caring. A+++

I spent years seeing him on and off and he did not listen to me at all. He was dismissive and insisted I had tendinitis. Thankfully I finally requested a new doctor who listened and after a successful operation I'm finally pain free. Dr. Easley was rude and condescending.

Achilles tendon rupture and detached from heel due to accident. Dr Easley was extremely knowledgeable and surgery was a success. 6 months later I was already back playing tennis - gingerly - and 9 months later back to almost normal. Pre and post surgery Dr Easley was always avail to answer questions and he really cared about my progress. I felt he truly cared.

went to see in Jan 2016,was told by second visit he could help me.Now wants to amputate my left foot, he is not willing to do corrective surgery because it is high risk. Does not seem concerned that amputation should be LAST RESORT AFTER SURGERY FAILURE !!! Even if success rate is 50 % I should be offered that option.THIS IS MY FOOT HE WANTS TO CUT OFF WITHOUT EVEN TRYING TO SAVE IT. I feel I deserve the option of trying to save my foot.
