About Dr. Amarantos
Board Certified Podiatrist
Gregory T. Amarantos has been practicing Podiatric Medicine and Surgery since 1983. Dr. Amarantos is a graduate of Loyola University of Chicago and received his DPM degree from the William Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine. He was residency trained at Thorek Hospital.
Dr. Amarantos is the Chief of the Podiatry Section and the Podiatric Residency director of Swedish Covenant Hospital. Dr. Amarantos is also on the staff of NorthShore University and Northwestern Lake Forest Hospitals and Board Certified in Foot and Ankle Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons. He is the past president of the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association and serves on the Podiatry Licensing Board of the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation.
Dr. Amarantos knew he wanted to be a podiatrist ever since he had a positive experience with his former podiatrist and mentor. He quickly came to realize that a patient will walk in with pain and more often than not, they are walking out feeling better almost immediately. His specialties are the treatment of heel pain, bunions, laser therapy, ingrown toenails, and overall foot pain.
Dr. Amarantos enjoys getting to know each patient as “a person” and not just as a patient. He exercises regularly and in his free time reads history and biographies, plays golf, cheers for both the White Sox and Cubs (while suffering through the Bears season), and spends time with his wife and three children.

Dr. Àmarantos is professional, down to earth, funny and pretty smart too! Just the first visit but I appreciate the time he took to listen and then explain his diagnosis.
Dr. Aramantos is amazing. I went in to see him and he addressed 3 different issues that were going on with me. He is very nice and takes care of your needs right away. He is the best foot doctor that I’ve ever had, and I am very happy with him and any future patients will be too. Thank you Dr. Aramantos!
The front line staff, medical assistant, and Dr. Amarantos were all warm, friendly, professional, and resolved my issue expediently.
