Patients love 'em!

July 7, 2009 —

The Des Moines University Foot and Ankle Institute had a record number of patient visits (7,329) and new patients (1,226) for the 2008-09 fiscal year. DMU Foot and Ankle Institute clinicians also see patients at Pella Regional Medical Center, the Iowa Methodist Wound Center and Adair County Hospital.

The Foot and Ankle Institute is the largest group of podiatric physicians in the state and provides clinical training to students in the College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery.

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
