Robert A. Boudreau, DPM, is a board-certified foot surgeon and podiatrist at UT Health East Texas Physicians Fifth Street in Tyler. Dr. Boudreau believes “the feet are the mirror of your health. When your feet hurt, it prevents you from doing normal, everyday activities. This can affect your current and future health tremendously.”
Dr. Boudreau has extensive experience with orthotics, offering conservative treatment without surgical intervention. When surgery is required, Dr. Boudreau’s experience as a foot surgeon gives him the ability to offer expert care to his patients. “It’s very rewarding when someone comes in hurting with foot problems and I can make a diagnosis and use treatments to make them feel better.”

I’ve had foot issues since birth. About three years ago my feet became incredibly painful, making it hard to do much of anything. I am my husband’s full time caregiver so not being able to get around is not an option.
My PCM sent me to Dr. Boudreau. Over the course of six months Dr. Boudreau worked with me to figure out my issues (plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis and metatarsus adductus) and get me in to physical therapy. I did six weeks of physical therapy and my plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis have improved dramatically! The metatarsus adductus is a birth defect - it can be corrected with surgery but that is usually done in early childhood. I have opted not to have surgery at this time after discussing all of the options with Dr. Boudreau. I am now back to being active, doing yard work, working out and being able to be on my feet all day without pain.
I also had a partially failed matrixectomy from a previous surgery in Maine. Dr. Boudreau performed a matrixectomy to fix the previous failed surgery. My toe healed up great and I no longer have pain from the previous failed surgery.
I really like Dr. Boudreau. I was in significant pain but he didn’t push pain killers. (A big deal to me - I wanted to fix the problem, not mask the pain.) He discussed all of my options with me and was very understanding of my situation. I appreciated a doctor that would take my desires, as a patient, in to account. His staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I had zero billing issues.
I’d absolutely recommend Dr. Boudreau to anyone looking for a podiatrist. I’ve spent fifty years seeing podiatrists and Dr. Boudreau is one of the best that I’ve seen.
