Dr Hodson comes from a strong medical family. His grandfather was a primary care physician, Father is a practicing Podiatrist in Panama City, Mother is a Dental Hygienist, and his Sister is finishing up residency to become a Pediatric Ophthalmologist. Dr Hodson has learned growing up in a medical family, that bedside manner is of utmost importance when treating people and their feet. We try to have as much fun in clinic as we can and our patients seem to love that about our staff. We really enjoy our long time patients who keep up with our lives and are always expecting a report on not only the condition of their feet, but the home life of their physician and friend... Dr Hodson started his training at the University of Florida College of Health Science, followed by attending William M Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago, IL. After 4 years in the cold, he interviewed and secured a guaranteed spot at West Houston Medical Center Podiatric Medical and Surgical 36 Month Residency in Texas, where he more than doubled the required case load for graduation and was awarded the title of Chief Resident of 12 residents. Things can get serious when dealing with more complex foot and ankle deformities, trauma, infections... But we keep the tension low and spirits high while we fix the problem. When Dr Hodson is not out healing the world of sick feet, he enjoys offshore fishing, inshore fishing, shore fishing... he likes to fish... He is a Gator fan as well, so wear your school colors if you want to talk football! Lastly, but most importantly, he very much enjoys spending time with his beautiful fiancé, Gina (newly engaged) and their families who both live in Florida..
