Every one in the office is friendly courteous and professional. They diagnosed and resolved my foot discomfort quickly and efficiently.

I would definitely recommend Foothill podiatry to others.

Dr. Runte is the best foot Dr. in town!! He's very knowledgeable, he listens to his patients, and he cares!!

Ashley Davis

Doctor Garcia and Doctor Runti are both WONDERFUL, knowledgeable and experienced. I have personally seen them as well as my son and it is a wonderful experience every time. They are always accommodating with scheduling and always get me in right away. Office staff are very friendly and helpful. Over all great experience if you must find yourself at the podiatrist, this is the one to go to. ☺️

Very nice and professional. I’ve been here for a while.

John & Carole Peplowski

These Doctors are the best. My wife and I have been going to them for over 20 years. They care about their patients and their community. We have become good friends over the years and would highly recommend them for your footcare!

The staff are always cheerful and eager to help. Both doctors are personable and professional, a rare combination. When I walk out, my feet have a spring in each step.

Boni Woodland

I recently had a bone fusion on the top of my foot and a shortening of two toes to construct a better working result. It was the best surgery outcome I have ever had starting with the kind front staff and with Dr. Runte's expert knowledge and skills. Foot surgery is not for the faint of heart, but I am glad I stayed in town and am healing up fantastically! Thank you Foothill Podiatry Clinic!

Don Timpany

Dr. Runte performed surgery on my toe for a tailor bunion. The procedure went perfectly. Subsequent follow up appointments were productive, informative and I really appreciate Dr. Runte's ability to speak plainly and sincerly about the process.

Lisa Howell

Got my splinter out super easily. Thank you Dr. Runte

Well Aged

Walking several miles per week was causing tender feet, some loss of sensation, and problems with balance. I visited another podiatrist with little benefit so I tried Foothill Podiatry. Dr. Runte quickly analyzed the problem and built an orthotic correction on the spot. After a month of using it, my balance has returned and I walk without pain.

Bruce Moniz

I love Dr. Runte and his staff! Dr. Runte always explains his diagnosis and procedures in plain language. He takes his time and makes sure you feel comfortable. His staff are always friendly and accommodating.

Thank you so much to Dr. Kennan T. Runte and his team for making my experience more comfortable than I’d imagined! My procedure was done swiftly, with much care to alleviate pain and I’m happy to say that I am healing nicely. I highly recommend this clinic!

Diane Neptune

Dr. Kunte and his staff are great! They are attentive and answer questions thoroughly. I've never had to wait more than 10 minutes, if that, in the waiting room. Dr. Kunte knows his stuff and is good at explaining and imparting information. He solved a foot problem that has plagued me for many years and I will be back if I have any other foot problems!

Nancy Neville

Truly a very friendly & professional Podiatry office. I highly recommend Dr. Runte.

Michael Shea

They are always ready for me at my appointment time.

Dr. Runte certainly has my vote for a caring and knowledgeable surgeon. I've had issues with my feet having spent many years working out doors and the good doctor diagnosed my concerns and recommended a solution to alleviate the pain. I highly recommend him.

Mary Wyrsch

Dr. Runte was so great with treating my feet and getting me back on the tennis court.

Sydney Welch

Doctor Runte really helped me with my foot issues. He always made me feel like I was his only patient and truly cares for me when needed. When I was injured he made time for me as soon as possible which means everything! He listened to all my concerns when needed which I truly appreciate. I highly recommend going to Doctor Runte!

Chris Schneider

Dr. Runte literally saved my 2-week vacation by providing just the solution I needed to my problem.

Jake Sypnicki

I’ve been going to Ken since I was in middle school for various ankle/foot injuries and I couldn’t be happier! Not only is Ken extremely knowledgeable about his craft, himself and the entire office are super friendly and make you feel at home the whole time you are there. I’d strongly recommend Ken Runte to anyone experiencing any issues below the knee in the Grass Valley area!

Carolyn Hoer

Dr. Runte and his staff are especially friendly and always focused on what is best for their patients. Thank you Dr. Runte and Foothill Podiatry Clinic team for A-one treatment.

Terence F. Young

Dr. Runte is a really top rate podiatrist. I have been under his care for about three years now and have never had cause for complaint. He listens carefully and gives great advice. In addition, I believe that you can often judge the quality of a doctor by the quality of his staff. At Foothill Podiatry, from reception to professional medical staff, everyone is pleasant, caring and attentive. This has been one of my best experiences with a medical office.

Valerie Scaglione

Dr. Ken Runte is the only podiatrist my family sees. He is very friendly, knowledgeable and thoroughly discusses all options for care. We have known Dr. Runte for almost 15 years and we trust him completely. I would highly recommend Dr. Runte for all of your podiatry needs.

Sarah Lewis

Dr. Runte is just incredible. His professionalism, examination and analysis of my foot issues has saved my ability to walk/run long distances without all of the pain, His staff is warm and welcoming. You could find NO BETTER Podiatrist. Friends I have referred here have all had nothing but the highest compliments and Dr. Runte would be the only Doctor I would refer anyone too.

Michelle Taylor

If you are looking for a podiatrist in the greater Sacramento area I whole heartedly recommend Dr. Runte. Him and his staff are amazing! They are very competent and always make me feel safe and comfortable. You couldn’t be in better hands.

Hannah Rekoon

Dr. Runte and his staff are second to none. I can’t recommend a better Podiatry Clinic!

Jen Poe

Best podiatrist in the greater Sacramento area, including Placer and Nevada County. About 20 years ago I was suffering from nagging pain in the back of my knee. Multiple doctors could not figure out what the problem was. One of them even casted my leg saying that my tendons were torn. Wrong! I was advised to seek counsel with Dr. Runte and I'm glad I did. He made me custom orthotics which fit like a glove and cured my knee pain. To this day, the pain has not returned. I wear my orthotics religiously and even returned to Dr. Runte for a second pair. What a gem the foothills have in this podiatrist! He is great at what he does, and he is kind, thoughtful, and funny too! I highly recommend Dr. Runte!

Nora Kodet

I went to visit Dr. Ken when I could hardly walk. I had over exercised from golf and line dancing and damaged the balls of my feet. He made a set of orthotics with strict instructions of foot care. I’m as good as new! Now, if Doc could just improve my golf game and dancing skills as well as my tootsies, I’d be a happy camper.

Carolyn Bechly

I had pain on the balls of my feet and in my toes. Dr. Runte did a thorough exam and put some pads on the soles of my shoes and the pain went away. I am very happy with his clinic and his approach to foot care. I definitely recommend him to my family and friends.

Martin Schmidt

Dr. Runte and his staff were great to work with. He noticed as I walked into his office what my foot problem was. He recommended surgery that would correct the problem and it was successful! He clearly outlined the recovery process and the information was exactly as predicted.

I highly recommend him.

Stephanie Raugi

Wonderful atmosphere. Dr Cook had the best bed side manner.🙂

Kymber Du Smythe

Dr. Nate and all of the staff are friendly, helpful and competent.


I recently had a rather poor experience with another podiatry office (out of town). I decided to call Foothill Podiatry and I am so glad I did. What an awesome office! The office staff was so friendly and got me right in. Dr. Rivera spent time listening to my concerns, then thoroughly explained my options, answered all of my questions. My x-ray was done right there in the office! Once surgery was decided upon, they explained every step (pun intended) of the process, what to expect, giving me ample time to address any concerns I had. Peggy was so friendly and helpful as well. I highly recommend Foothill Podiatry. I've been a nurse for 27 years so know a great office when I see one! Thanks Foothill!

Tarra Schmidt

Everyone here went above and beyond. So thankfull for them being able to help my daughter so quickly when no one else would. Thank you so much you deserve 10 stars!

Linda Critchfield

Dr. Cook is professional, excellent and kind. The medical assistant and office staff were also very welcoming and efficient. I recommend Dr. Jeremy Cook for any foot and ankle medical needs.

Linda C.

M.T. Blake

My experience has been excellent. Dr. Runte is quick, competent, and it's easy to discuss options with him. The office staff is friendly and quick to get you in and out of the office! Come here if you need some foot work done! You won't regret it.

Yvette Alexander

My visit to Foothill Podiatry was very good! Dr. Runte and staff were great and they made me feel very comfortable during my appointment. Definitely would recommend seeing Dr. Runte at Foothill Podiatry.

Taraleigh Duffey

My 4 year old son broke his foot (jumping off our coffee table of all things) and I was so worried about how it would heal. I wanted him to have the best treatment possible, and I didn't want to mess with seeing his pediatrician, being sent out to get x-rays, then being transferred to a doctor that could care for him- so I took him directly to Foothill Podiatry. I had broken my ankle a few years ago and knew Foothill Podiatry to be highly trained, skilled, professional and caring. All in one visit, they assessed, x-rayed, and casted my son's foot. The Doctors and nurses were so kind and understanding and made my son feel so secure. In fact, he enjoyed his appointment! His foot has healed perfectly (and so has my ankle!). Thank you Dr. Runte and Dr. Cook!!! Thank you Foothill Podiatry! It is so nice to know we have skilled foot & ankle surgeons right here in grass valley.

Carrie Lyman

My experience with Dr. Cook and his staff was very pleasant. I felt very welcomed and I received prompt and excellent care. Dr. Cook spent time with me evaluating my needs and I left feeling taken care of. The staff efficiently followed up with me as well.

I would recommend Foothill Podiatry clinic to anyone.

Randall Nolan

Dr. Runte and his staff have raised the bar on patient care. From the first phone call I was treated with respect and concern for a severe ankle injury. The Office staff were able to get me in the same day as the referral form my PCP.

Dr. Runte interpreted the MRI findings and showed me what was injured in a way that I could easily understand and gave me a clear plan of actions.

A grateful patient

Megan Bizjack

Dr. Runte, and Dr. Cook are wonderful. Dr Cook, and Dr. Runte performed a surgery he wanted to try before ultimately fusing my ankle as 3 surgeons before him suggested. My ankle looks amazing. No fusion. He fully explains the pros and cons. Excellent bedside manner. He takes the time to alleviate any concerns. I'm not able to walk on my foot just yet, but I can already tell he did a fantastic job. I appreciate him exhausting all possibilities before having to do something I really didn't want to do. Thank you Dr. Cook and Dr. Runte, words cannot express my gratitude.
