Alissa J. Redding, D.P.M.

Dr. Redding’s decision to pursue a medical degree occurred in middle school, in part because of a fantastic science teacher. During high school in her hometown of Marshall, Dr. Redding began working with individuals with developmental disabilities and continued throughout college in St. Peter. She also volunteered at the hospital’s cardiac rehab program in both St. Peter and Marshall. It has always been important that she feels she is making a difference in the lives of others.

After graduating from Gustavus Adolphus College, Dr. Redding continued her studies at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. She completed a three-year residency program near Detroit after medical school and returned to Marshall as a podiatrist. Dr. Redding is a board eligible doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM) and joined GRHS in August 2016.

With a patient-focused approach to care, Dr. Redding collaborates with her patients and takes into account their overall health, expectations, and goals before developing a treatment plan with them. Her medical interests include diabetic care, wound care, and all aspects of foot and ankle surgery.

Dr. Redding can help bring much-needed foot and ankle relief for:

  • Bunions
  • Corns and callouses
  • Diabetic care
  • Fallen arches
  • Heel spurs
  • Injuries
  • Fractures and sprains
  • Fusion of toes, foot, or ankle
  • Nail care
  • Pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Wound care
  • And more

Dr. Redding and her husband Brent were attracted to the area during their visit because of the lakes and outdoor activities, in addition to the laid-back, small-town life they would have. They were struck by the friendly atmosphere of the hospital as well as the number of employees and people in the community who had been with Glacial Ridge Health System for years. She appreciated that there was a range of services locally and decided to be part of that.

While not at work, Dr. Redding enjoys reading, bike riding, camping, and cooking. Dr. Redding speaks some Spanish as well.
