Cosette Standridge-Folsom, DPM, completed her undergraduate degree at Dominican University of California in Marin County and completed her medical school training at Midwestern University in Arizona. During this time, she had the privilege of serving at the regional hospital while living on the Navajo Reservation. As a member of the Choctaw Nation, Dr. Standridge-Folsom found this experience to be invaluable, not only in education but also in personal growth and connection with her ancestral history. After medical school, Dr. Standridge-Folsom completed her PMSR/RRA residency at VA-Greater Los Angeles/UCLA-Olive View County Hospital. She also trained at Kaiser in Woodland Hills, thus giving her experience in the federal, county, and private sectors. She is a native of Stockton, California, and is a proud “California Girl”. She has now made her home on the peninsula with her husband and their two cats. When she’s not working, you can find her spending time with family, exploring the peninsula, or visiting her favorite mouse at Disneyland.
Dr. Standridge-Folsom is Board Certified from the American Board of Podiatric Medicine. She values connecting with her patients on a personal level. Recognizing the importance of the non-surgical side of the podiatric profession, she finds immense satisfaction in resolving her patients’ pain with minimally invasive or non-invasive techniques performed in clinic with minimal to no down time such as MLS laser therapy and custom orthotics to optimize one’s gait and maximize performance. She makes it a personal goal to educate her patients on the cause of their pathology in ways that are easy to understand with treatments tailored to their lifestyle. She looks forward to serving her community for years to come.
