Joan Tekula, DPM
Dr. Joan Tekula was born and raised in New York City. She is an NYU undergraduate, Temple School of Podiatric Medicine, with a residency in Connecticut—which is what brought her to Northwest Hills. She raised two children, was in private practice, and has been caring for the residents at a residential psychiatric hospital for over 20 years.
Dr. Tekula considers it an honor to take care of the human foot. She says, “Everyone comes to me in some degree of discomfort and they all leave feeling better. It’s a gift. My motto is: ‘You can limp in but you can’t limp out!’ ”
