Family Footcare first opened its doors in Naugatuck in January of 1990 by Dr. Mader and Dr. DeJesus, podiatric physicians and surgeons.
The doctors choose the Naugatuck area due to the large Portuguese population. Dr. DeJesus is of Portuguese decent and speaks the language fluently and therefore the doctors felt they could serve this demographic as well as the community at large.
Drs. Mader and DeJesus are highly trained foot and ankle surgeons and felt there was a need for podiatric care in the Naugatuck/Waterbury area. Three years later, as their practice continued to grow, they decided to open a second office in the Danbury area. They choose this area due to the vast Portuguese population once again. As their practice flourished, the patient volume along the I-84 corridor also grew rapidly.
July of 2011 Dr. Betty Carreira, another highly trained podiatric physician and surgeon, joined the practice.
In 2012 Family Footcare opened its third location in Southbury to further service their patients along the I84 corridor.
The Doctors and staff, at Family Footcare, take great pride in providing podiatric care for the central Connecticut region for over 25 years.
