Foot & Ankle of W. GA Named Small Business Giant

Posted August 22, 2013     1 comments

Foot and Ankle of West Georgia was honored with the Small Business Giant award for August 2013. The award was presented to Dr. Alap Shah by Chamber Chair Jacki Lowe  at the August Eye-Opener Military Appreciation breakfast. The monthly Small Business Giant award is selected by the Chamber's Small Business Recognition Committee and must be in business for a minimum of five years and have proven growth and community service efforts.

Foot and Ankle of West Georgia is a professional corporation, founded by Dr. Joe Bartley in 1983. The practice specializes in treating conditions of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. Dr. Bartley also established the Foot and Ankle Surgery Center, LLC. The surgery center holds a certificate of need from the State of Georgia, and is JACCO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.) This ambulatory surgery center has anesthesia capability, and can perform most foot surgeries that are traditionally handled in a hospital setting. In October 2002, Dr. Bartley brought in Dr. Alap Shah and shortly thereafter Dr. Michael Schreck in January 2003. Dr. Hyneman joined the practice in 2007. In July 2012, Dr. Bartley, his wife Terry and one of his daughters tragically lost their lives in a plane crash. Dr. Shah, Dr. Schreck and Dr. Hyneman stepped forward and lead their team through the loss. They took care of their team and all their patients with love and compassion, as Dr. Bartley would have wished. They are very well known for caring for their patients and creating a nurturing place to receive care. They also have a very loyal and engaged staff that delivers exceptional patient care every day.

Foot and Ankle of West Georgia is located at 2751 Warm Spring Road. Find them online at

Congratulations Foot and Ankle of West Georgia on being named the August 2013 Small Business Giant!
