Dr. Rafiq obtained her Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine from Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine in Ohio. She then completed her residency in Madison, Wisconsin at the Department of Veterans Affair.
At the VA, her professional and surgical skills were strengthened in wound care, elective and emergent cases including, but not limited to bunions, hammertoes and ingrowing toenail procedures.
Most recently, Dr. Rafiq completed her fellowship in foot and ankle surgery at Emory Midtown University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. During this fellowship she reinforced her foundation of surgical skills and gained advanced surgical training. The fellowship has a strong emphasis on limb salvage, complex deformity correction, peripheral nerve surgery, muscle flaps and minimally invasive surgery.
Dr. Rafiq and her husband fell in love with the South this past year and decided to make this their permanent home. In her spare time, Dr. Rafiq enjoys being outdoors, traveling, enjoying the beach, and spending time with their dog and family.
