About Dr. Bongiovanni
Board Certified Podiatrist
Dr. Frank Bongiovanni was inspired to become a podiatrist by his father, who worked for the Dr. Scholl company making orthotic shoes. Today, Dr. Bongiovanni is an associate professor at the Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in addition to working as a practicing physician at WFAI.
In addition to general podiatry training, Dr. Bongiovanni is trained in pedorthics, or the practice of using specialized footwear to correct issues with the foot or ankles. In fact, one of Dr. Bongiovanni’s orthotic devices once was used by a mountaineer scaling Mt. Everest!
Dr. Bongiovanni is also a part of several charitable organizations, including the Sister Paulanne Needy Family Fund, the Midwest Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation, and the Chicago Proton Center. Dr. Bongiovanni believes in the power of diet and exercise as a foundation for a healthy lifestyle. So he is an avid spin biker and tennis player, belonging to the Glenview tennis club. He also enjoys spending quality time with his wife and two daughters.

I met Dr Frank Bongiovanni at the Libertyville office for my heel and ankle pain. I was highly impressed with Dr Frank, as he goes over the details of our life style which most of the physicians miss during the consultation. I received the best recommendation and treatment for my problem and he spent a very good amount of time during the consultation. I highly recommend Dr Fank at Weil Foot & Ankle Institute for all your heel and ankle problems.
