Dr. Jamey Allen, University Foot and Ankle Institute. Podiatrist Los Angeles

Dr. Jamey Allen — UFAI’s newest addition to its medical staff — understands her patients’ urgency to quickly heal from their sports injuries. After all, she’s spent her entire life playing a variety of sports including volleyball and suffered numerous foot and ankle setbacks.

 

Growing up with her two sisters in sunny San Diego, the entire family was active. “Everyone was big into sports,” says Dr. Allen, in regards to family members who have participated in collegiate and professional teams.

 

After completing high school, Dr. Allen attended the University of Arizona, well-known for its stellar athletic programs. In addition to playing on the Division I Woman’s volleyball team, the 5’10” physician was a member of the Chi Omega sorority, where she helped raise donations for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

 

She chose podiatry because the pitfalls of being active were familiar to her. “I suffered multiple ankle sprains and fractured my foot,” she says. ”My experiences going from an injury and returning to the game led me to become interested in this field.”

 

After graduating with honors from Kent State University College of Podiatry Medicine, Dr. Allen completed her residency at Cambridge Health Alliance, which is affiliated with Harvard University. During her residency, she performed and researched different arthroscopy techniques to address osteochondral lesions.

 

These days, Dr. Allen enjoys running, hiking, and plays pickup volleyball games on the beach in Santa Monica where she currently lives.

 

Dr. Allen also volunteers her services at sporting events and has worked in the medical tent at the Boston Marathon. At previous races she has volunteered, she treated more podiatric injuries. However this last year at the Boston Marathon, the cold weather was combined with high winds and rain lead to treating more runners for hypothermia.

 

Dr. Allen also enjoys cooking but stops short of considering herself a gourmet chef. “I try to make things at home but not always with great success,” she says.

 

She is looking forward to the day when she can own a golden retriever or two. Until then, she’s content dog sitting when she visits her parents in San Diego.
