Dr. W.L. Mauney established this medical practice in 1932 as a one-person office. It was the first podiatry clinic in Cleveland County and the eighth in the state of North Carolina. Dr. W.L. Mauney’s mission to diagnose and treat the foot and ankle problems of the residents of the Foothills is still being fulfilled today with the current staff of two doctors and five staff members.

Dr. Jeff Mauney, Dr. W.L. Mauney’s son, and Dr. Ron Maskarinec, both board-certified, keep abreast of the evolving treatments and products in the field of podiatry so they can offer their patients top-quality care. Both doctors re-credential every 10 years to keep abreast with new technology. They also receive annually 25 hours of continuing education credits. In July, 2018 Foothills Podiatry added Dr. Gretchen Lawrence to the practice. She completed a four year surgical residency in the foot and ankle and has had 8 years of practice prior to joining Foothills Podiatry. In Aug. 2023 Dr. Sruti Karwa joined the practice.
