A Never-Ending Commitment to the Best Care

Rainier Foot & Ankle Associates was founded in 2018 after Dr. Christopher Bock moved from a large regional health care system to establish an independent practice.

We serve patients throughout Enumclaw and the Greater Seattle area, providing personalized care that involves carefully listening to the specific ways foot and ankle problems are affecting your life. Our philosophy is that a sound doctor-patient understanding is critical in determining and recommending the treatments that will have the greatest positive impact on each person’s individual needs.

Our practice relies on tried-and-true conservative treatments, advanced technology, and skilled surgical care to provide the best positive outcomes. Dr. Bock and our staff are continuously pursuing new and broader realms of podiatric training and education to ensure that better treatments and techniques do not pass by unutilized.

The base motivation of our practice is to be of greatest benefit to the people we serve. The results are what ultimately matter, and we place high expectations upon ourselves to ensure patient well-being and satisfaction.
