State-of-the-Art Care for the Whole Family

At Heartland Foot & Ankle, we don’t think you should have to choose between a practice with advanced treatment options or one with a relaxed, family-first atmosphere. Our mission from the very beginning has been to give our patients both!

As a doctor, a mother, and the only female podiatrist practicing in McLean county, I welcome you to our practice! Nothing is more important to me than ensuring all our patients—from toddlers to great grandparents—feel comfortable, welcome, and well-cared for. That philosophy extends to everything we do, including the quality of our treatment options, our friendly service, and the personal attention we give to every patient, young and old.

What Others Have Said About Heartland Foot & Ankle

Dr. Melissa Lockwood was able to make me pain-free in 15 minutes. I walked out of the office with no pain at all and never did experience any pain thereafter. It is so nice to be able to wear nice shoes again. Kudos to Dr. Lockwood and to her staff! It truly was a wonderful experience.

“Thank you for taking such great care of my daughter. Your expertise was so efficient and accurate, but it was the kind and comfortable way you treated us that made such a lasting impact. Thank you for helping her heal properly and thank you for your caring and pleasant environment.”

Dawn L.

I was having major pain in my arch as well as pain due to an ingrown toenail. Dr. Lockwood treated both problems and I am currently pain free. I am so glad I went to Heartland Foot & Ankle for treatment and highly recommend it. Dr. Lockwood has a great bedside manner and her staff is very personable.

Dr. Lockwood and the entire staff made me feel at ease from the moment I walked in the doorand I was extremely nervous! She walked me through the entire process step by step and made sure I was more than comfortable the entire time. Highly recommend and will definitely be back for any and all future footcare needs! Thank you to everyone there 🙂

My 12yearold daughter had 2 ingrown toenails and delayed getting them looked at for quite some time. The entire staff was amazing and very friendly and made my daughter feel very comfortable and at ease. I would highly recommend this office to anyone!
