About Me

I joined Ohio State after working in Army Medicine, managing a broad spectrum of patients with foot and ankle disorders. From experience in austere environments, I honed my skills in out of the box solutions for both simple and complex challenges. I enjoyed working with a team of subspecialists to get our soldiers back to duty as quickly as possible. At Ohio State, we have a strikingly similar team and opportunity to expand medical solutions. We have a phenomenal group of physicians working to get individuals back to the activities they enjoy and I also continue to pursue my research in microfracture, cartilage restoration for the talus and ankle arthritis.

I provide care for a variety of foot and ankle conditions in my clinical practice, ranging from sports injuries to trauma to deformities, reconstruction and arthritis. My approach is to get to know the patient, how their problem affects their life and what their overall goals are. I believe patients should know all of the options that are available to them and to create a treatment plan together to get them back to the the level that they want to be.

I saw Dr. Groth for a broken ankle and this particular appointment was a follow-up. Since I had never broken a bone before, he was very patient to answer all of my random questions. I also sent notes through MyChart which were promptly answered. I feel that care I received (from the time I broke my ankle to the last follow-up) was outstanding.

Was aware of new options. That was very impressive. Led to trust.

Dr. Groth was excellent. My foot issue was and is difficult to articulate, and Dr. Groth listened to my concerns and pinpointed the exact area where the pain originated. Great doctor!

I scheduled this appointment for the sole purposes of getting a steroid injection to my ankle after a previous injury. The doctor had told me to schedule for an injection if pain came back. He refused to do the injection without even examining my ankle first, so the entire appointment was pointless. I paid for an appointment for absolutely nothing when he could have told me not to schedule if he had no intention of treating me.

Dr. Groth was very patient and kind. He asked a few questions about my Achilles tendon but I think he could have examined it a bit more. I left feeling like I didn't quite share enough info with him to get a "certain" diagnosis. He didn't manipulate my foot/ankle at all. Not sure that would have helped?? Overall, I liked him.
