Dr. Tiernan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Tiernan "While attending the University of Iowa, I looked for a career in the medical field that was challenging and yet set in a controlled comfortable environment. My studies lead me to the Des Moines University College of Podiatric Medicine in Des Moines, Iowa. I was thrilled that there was a study of medicine that was mostly beloved by its patients and not feared like many others in the medical field. Being a foot and ankle specialist has allowed me to work in a comfortable office setting and surgical centers rather than working on floors of a hospital. I am hoping that this brief introduction into my patient care philosophy and educational background will provide you with enough information for you to make an important decision about your foot and ankle physician."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tiernan "My approach is fairly simple. Treat patients like they are part of your family. I try conservative approaches to all foot and ankle conditions first before discussing surgery. I try to explain every aspect of the condition and the different options for treatment so my patient can make an informed decision. Treatments are customized to the patient, not everyone is the same. My patients typically do not wait for their appointment times. New patient appointments are set up for 30 minutes. Take care"
