Bunions are bone deformations that form on the foot where it joins the big toe. They develop over time, gradually getting bigger and sticking out from the rest of the foot.


Ingrown toenails are nails that have grown into the soft skin that surrounds the nail bed. In many cases, it is the corner of the nail that curves downward into the skin.

Dr. Hadfield, Mckinney food doctor podiatristWelcome to Hadfield Foot and Ankle! I’m Dr. Robert Hadfield, DPM and I practiced in McKinney for nearly 5 years and after a short hiatus I am back to proudly serve McKinney and the surrounding Collin County area. I founded Hadfield Foot and Ankle on the principles of superior patient & foot care which are: effective communication, highly skilled conservative and surgical treatment and superior customer service.

A McKinney Texas Podiatrist Center that You can Trust

A patient of mine and I had an important conversation a while back at my Mckinney office that made a big impact on me. She said that her having some complex issues has caused many of her doctors to dismiss her problems, chalking it up to anxiety or mental illness. I told her that doctors are human and they don’t always know the answer. They want to fix what they can. The best ones know when to say they don’t know and ask for help. As a patient it’s comforting to know that your doctor has seen your issue thousands of times and knows exactly how to fix it (and 99% of the time they do). But it’s called practicing medicine for a reason, and just like with anything else, the more practice (and training), the better you get. Except me playing golf, I won’t ever get better no matter how much I practice.

I am the son of a teacher and have always enjoyed educating others. As a podiatrist, it is from this background that I developed the desire and techniques to help everyone understand their medical condition and which treatments will be the most effective solution. I believe communication is the key to this solution and enjoy finding new ways to connect with others to help them understand as extensively as they want to learn. Everyone learns differently and I tailor the discussion to the learning style of the patient, rather than making them learn the way I teach.

I am a graduate of the Penn Presbyterian Medical Center residency program which is the one of only two 4 year programs in the country, where I learned the latest techniques as well as classically proven methods of treatment. I chose this training because I wanted to know all the answers (or at least 99% of them) and saw a wide variety of patients and conditions. I have continued to work on the most challenging cases since graduation. I am a perpetual student and continue to learn more daily to improve my ability to take care of patients.

What does a Foot Doctor or Podiatrist do?

Superior customer service in Mckinney TX for your foot care needs is of utmost importance at Hadfield Foot and Ankle center. I have unfortunately worked in many places where it has been severely lacking, which was a source of significant frustration. Having been a patient myself I have also seen firsthand how difficult it can be when employees are not concerned with me and my needs. This is why at Hadfield Foot and Ankle, you come first. You’re not a number, and our team cares for all our patients. As with several cases I’ve seen, those with ankle pain who receive advanced foot care can help prevent the need for ankle surgery, utilizing physical therapy instead.

I will help you come up with a treatment plan for ankle and foot pain. Ankle injuries are common, but the goal of seeing an ankle specialist or foot doctor is to avoid the need for reconstructive surgery. Whether you need diabetic foot care, or if you’ve got heel pain, athletes foot, or even toenail fungus, when it comes to podiatrists in McKinney, you’ll feel right at home. Bring your foot and ankle conditions for advanced podiatric medicine and care. Even if it’s just an ankle sprain or ankle instability, come in for a consultation – nothing “too big or too small” when it comes to your mobility.

The bottom line is I care a lot. Probably more than I should for my own health, which is probably why I’m bald (well, that and having twins). But caring makes a big difference. When you visit our office I want you to feel cared for because you are. It is a blessing to be able to make a positive impact on another person. I get to do it every day and I continue to be grateful for it. Whether you’ve got a sports injury, flat feet or a diabetic foot, I want to hear from you.
