Both Dr. Ichikawa and Dr. Wilson:
Both of us were born and raised in the Bellevue/Issaquah area. We're both graduates from the California College of Podiatric Medicine and the University of Washington. We have both practiced in the Bellevue/Seattle area since the early 1990's. We are 20+ year members of the Washington State and American Podiatric Medical Associations. We are board certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and fellows of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgery. We both are active staff privileges at Overlake Hospital Medical Center.
Dr. Suzanne Wilson
Born in Washington and raised in Issaquah (when it was just a one stoplight town), I was drawn to the Eastside to run my practice. I started my medical career working as a student athletic trainer and physical therapy aide. This experience has helped me build a conservative care philosophy into my podiatric practice, with the goal of returning my patients back to their game. Medical school and residency introduced me to other interests such as diabetic foot care, women's foot issues (love of shoes) and reconstructive and ankle surgeries. I reside in West Seattle, surrounded by my parents and my six siblings and their families (so I often travel in a pack). Speaking of travel, it is a passion of mine. I love learning about new places, getting to know new people and eating unique foods. Past time pursuits also include Mariners and Huskies games, jogging, gardening and cooking.
Dr. Khanh Le
Dr. Khanh Le was raised in Sammamish, WA and attended Eastlake High School. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Washington where he earned a degree in Economics and then went on to attend Temple University in Philadelphia where he earned his Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine.
He completed three years of residency training at Beaumont Hospital in Southeastern Michigan where he served as chief resident for two years. His training included an emphasis in but not limited to reconstructive fore-foot and rear-foot surgery, foot/ankle trauma, wound care and sports medicine.
Dr. Le met his wife, Lynn while attending the University of Washington. They have a daughter named Avery and a Pomeranian named Simba. His hobbies include spending time with his family and friends, experimenting in the kitchen, tennis, running, hiking and cycling. As a cycling enthusiast, he was a member of the Philadelphia and Cascade Bicycle Clubs and has participated in numerous events, but his favorite being the Seattle to Portland ride.
He is excited to return to his roots in the Pacific Northwest to raise his family and to serve the community that has played an important role in his upbringing.
Dr. Doug Ichikawa
Dr. Ichikawa (Dr. Doug) also received his bachelors degree from the University of Washington and his doctorate from the California College of Podiatric Medicine. In spite of this, Cougar fans are truly welcome although they are subject to a slightly higher copay (just kidding!). Dr. Doug enjoys a half time teaching associate position at the Bone and Joint Center at the University of Washington. He is using the 520 bike lane as part of his regular commute to the UW. It's amazing!
He was raised in Bellevue just blocks away from the clinic and currently lives in Kirkland with his lovely wife Sue. His children, Jake and Molly, are pursuing careers in tech and medicine. Molly actually started Podiatric Medical School at Temple University in Philadelphia. She'll be a third generation podiatrist!
While he practices a wide range of podiatric medicine, his main area of interest in the 'Syndesmosis Bunionectomy', a newer procedure that corrects bunion deformities without needing to cut the metatarsals. He traveled to Hong Kong in early 2017 to learn this procedure from orthopedic surgeon, Daniel Wu.
Dr. Doug is privileged for podiatric surgery at Overlake Hospital, Overlake Surgical Center, and University of Washington/Northwest Hospital.
Apart from work, Doug finds himself immersed in home and cabin building projects, biking, hiking, sports in general, mentoring at the Eastside Academy, the Sigma Nu fraternity, and the American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine. He and Sue attend the Bellevue Presbyterian Church.
