Our History

For Patients

PodiCare, Inc. was founded in 1994 by Jeffrey Galitz, M.D., DPM, FACFAS, DABPS.  Dr Galitz has the unique distinction of being both a licensed physician and podiatrist.  Dr. Galitz was residency director of the foot and ankle surgical program at Memorial Hospital in Hollywood, Florida.  He also served as Director of the Department of Podiatry for Hollywood Medical Center.  Dr. Galitz is also the CEO and founder of Woundtech which is one of the nation’s largest wound management companies covering 22 million lives in the US and Puerto Rico.  Woundtech is contracted with over 30 major health plans and over 100 MSO’s and IPA’s.
