The tag healthcare=podiatrist is used to map an podiatrist's office. A podiatrist, also known as a podiatric physician, or foot and ankle surgeon, is a medical professional devoted to the treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity.

In some countries podiatrists are licensed similar to physicians and perform surgery, in others they are allied health professionals who provide non-surgical treatments.

See amenity=doctors + healthcare:speciality=orthopaedics for an orthopedic surgeon's office (a surgeon who treats problems of the musculoskeletal system)

How to map

Set a node node placed at the centrepoint of the facility, or draw as an area area drawn around the perimeter.

Add healthcare=podiatrist and the name=*, if there is a commonly used name.
