Barking Dogs Foot and Ankle Care is proud to announce the addition of Dr. Stephanie Varghese, DPM to the practice.

“I’m lucky to work with the residents at Suburban Hospital where Dr. Varghese was the chief surgical resident.  She spent time in the office and really got to know our patients. I was able to observe her and feel that she treats patients the way we have been treating here in Plymouth Meeting for the past 5 years.

We’re growing and we needed someone who cares about their patients first and foremost.  The timing was right and we are happy and excited to have her. She’s is a great addition and an excellent physician.” – Dr. Pagano

Stephanie Varghese, DPM

Dr. Varghese is a board qualified surgeon and associate at Barking Dogs Foot and Ankle Care. She grew up in Dallas, Texas as a Dallas Cowboys fan but quickly learned the error of her ways, moved to Philadelphia, met her husband, and now bleeds green (Go EAGLES!).

A collegiate lacrosse player injured in her final year, Dr. Varghese first found her love for podiatric medicine. “I understand loving your sport and I enjoy getting athletes properly rehabbed and back to their activities.”

After receiving her Bachelor’s degree at Austin College in Sherman, Texas, she went on to earn her Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine from Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine. During her time at Temple Dr. Varghese participated in several dermatology research projects and developed a love for diagnosing and treating skin disease, soft tissue tumors/masses, fungal infections and wounds.

She then went on to complete three years of extensive surgical training at Suburban Community Hospital in East Norriton, Pennsylvania where she was chief resident in her final year. Dr Varghese is trained in all aspects of podiatric medicine with a focus on forefoot surgery, rearfoot/ankle reconstruction, diabetic limb salvage, dermatology, and sports medicine.

Dr. Varghese believes good medicine starts with taking your time with each patient and yearns for medicine to look like it did many years ago when your doctor lived in your town, knew your name, understood your story, and was ready to help at any time. Her hope is to bring back this aspect of medicine to modern day practice.
