St. Augustine Podiatrist Joins UCF Faculty
St. Augustine podiatrist, Thomas LeBeau, has joined the University of Central Florida College of Medicine faculty as an Assistant Professor of Podiatric Medicine. Dr. LeBeau brings over twenty-five years of experience to the UCF staff, six of which have been spent practicing in St. Augustine, Florida at the St. Augustine Foot and Ankle podiatry practice. The practice is located at 1 St. Johns Medical Park Dr. St. Augustine, FL 32086.
The University of Central Florida College of Medicine was founded in 2006 about 100 miles from St. Augustine by way of Interstate 95 and Interstate 4. Just an hour and a half drive from the school, Dr. LeBeau will provide support to other faculty, staff, and students, from St. Augustine, in the field of podiatric medicine. Dr. LeBeau’s specialties include the treatment of injuries such as strains and sprains, diabetic foot care, diabetic neuropathy treatment, wound care, bunion and hammertoe correction, treatment for heel pain and foot pain, treatment for corn and calluses, ingrown toenail removal, and ligament/tendon repair among many others.

“Working with the University of Central Florida College of Medicine is such an honor. From what I have seen so far, they are providing a top notch medical education to our future podiatrists, primary care providers, and other physicians. I am very much looking forward to being a part of that.” says Dr. LeBeau. When asked how being a faculty member will enhance his own practice he said, “Teaching and interacting with faculty and students from a state of the art medical school like this will help keep me informed on the latest medical techniques and technologies available to my patients. I’ll also have the latest medical information at my finger tips via the Harriet F. Ginsburg Health Sciences Library internet portal. With that type of access to information, you can’t help but serve your patients better. I am really looking forward to that also.”
