Vincent C. Marino, DPM
Dr. Marino believes the old adage “when your foot hurts, everything hurts”. He has been helping people with foot and ankle pain for over 29 years. He believes patients should be well informed about their medical problems so that they could make educational choices about their foot and ankle care.
Originally from New York, Dr. Marino graduated Cum Laude from The College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts in 1981. He spent time working towards a master’s degree in Microbiology before beginning podiatric medical school in New York where he graduated Cum Laude from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. After completing his foot and ankle surgical residency, Dr. Marino moved out to California in the summer of 1988. He originally began practicing as an associate until opening his own practice in San Francisco in 1989. He added a satellite office in Sacramento in the early 2000’s and has recently completed the purchase of the practice of his longtime associate Fred Youngswick, DPM whose untimely death was a shock to all who knew him.
