Dr. Jay C. Larson, DPM, FACFAS
Dr. Larson absolutely loves his patients and his job! His philosophy is to treat patients the way he would want to be treated.
Dr. Larson was born and raised in Logan, Utah where he attended Sky View High School. Upon graduating he took a two-year sabbatical to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints in Thailand. After successfully completing his mission, he returned to Utah State University and graduated with a degree in Public Health Education. Upon graduation, he worked as a Health Education Specialist teaching classes in diabetes, smoking cessation, and disease prevention for the Health Department, and at the same time worked in the Operating Room at Logan Regional hospital as an Anesthesia Tech. He loves teaching and feels that educating patients is crucial in helping them feel better and stay healthier.
In 2004 he left Utah with his small family and moved to Arizona to join the inaugural podiatry class at Midwestern University right here in Glendale, Arizona. After graduating in 2008 he left the warmth of Arizona to complete a three-year surgical residency training at Genesys Regional Medical Center in Grand Blanc, Michigan. During his third year of training, he was elected to be Chief Resident and served as the resident representative on several hospital committees. In 2011, Dr. Larson moved back to the warmth of Arizona and has been practicing at Sole Foot & Ankle Specialists ever since.
Dr. Larson has been married to his beautiful wife Jennifer for 25 years. They have three children: Aspen, Autumn, and Brighton, and two cats: Zoey and Koda.
When he is not working Dr. Larson enjoys mountain biking, snow skiing, hiking, reading but most of all spending time with his family. He is an avid landscape photographer and many of his photos can be seen displayed throughout the office. He is also a very active volunteer for his church, scouting, and is currently the head coach for a high school mountain bike team.
Dr. Larson is Board Certified with the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and a Fellow with the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.
