Dr. Scott P. Goldstein
Board-Certified Surgical Podiatrist

Inspired by his own passion for sports, Dr. Goldstein specializes in Podiatrics and joined Twin Palm Orthopedics in 2014.

A wrestler at the college level, today Dr. Goldstein sticks to marathon running and possesses a keen understanding of the issues runners face. He enjoys helping other athletes regain and maintain their active lifestyles, young and old alike.

From ankle reconstruction due to trauma to full ankle replacement, he asserts that there is no problem too complex to tackle.

Dr. Goldstein was born and raised in Ocala and went to college in South Carolina and received his D.P.M from Barry University in South Florida.

Married in 2003 to Kristi, the couple is raising two girls, Sophie and Stella. In his leisure time, Dr. Goldstein enjoys biking, skiing and the enthusiastic thank you’s from former patients that he runs into about town.

“I like high risk surgeries and difficult trauma cases; there is great satisfaction in knowing I have touched someone’s life for the better.”
