Coastal Podiatry, LLC: Healthy Feet for a Healthy Life
It goes without saying that our feet should be cherished – like a sip of century-old French wine paired with notes of Bach’s piano. Perhaps that statement might have been a slight hyperbole, but the point is that without healthy feet, our quality of life surely diminishes. That’s where Drs. Rahn and Tamika Ravenell of Coastal Podiatry, LLC come in.
Lowcountry born and raised Podiatrist Dr. Rahn Ravenell was Burke High School’s valedictorian before taking his talents to Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, where he graduated magna cum laude. It was in college, while working at a shoe store, that Dr. Ravenell fell for feet.
“I was working with runners, doing gait analysis, and became deeply invested in the biomechanics of how feet work,” said Dr. Ravenell.“My eyes opened to the idea of becoming a podiatrist.”
Since earning his doctorate at the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine, Dr. Ravenell has been a leader and pioneer in the field of podiatry.
While at Temple, Dr. Ravenell met his wife, Tamika, who was also studying for her doctorate in Podiatric Medicine. After gaining extensive field experience, with Tamika completing her residency at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and Rahn at DeKalb Medical in Decatur, Georgia, the Ravenells joined forces to open their own practice in Mount Pleasant in 2011.
“We really appreciate and reflect the local family feel here in Mount Pleasant,” said Dr. Rahn.
Outside of the office, the Ravenells enjoy kayaking, the vibrant Charleston food scene and Seacoast Church.
