About Dr. Weil
Board Certified Podiatrist
A passion for podiatry runs deep in the Weil family. Born and raised in the Chicagoland area, Dr. Lowell Weil Jr. grew up watching his father, Lowell Sr., work as a podiatrist in local hospitals and as the Team Podiatrist for the Chicago Bears. So it was no surprise that he attended the William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago for his Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine after graduating from Vanderbilt University.
Armed with an additional Masters in Business Administration, today he is not only a Podiatrist but also CEO for WFAI, where he makes use of both his podiatric expertise and his business training to provide the best environment for patients, team members, and physicians for the highest level of care. In addition to being trained in the latest surgical techniques, Dr. Weil Jr. embodies the ethic of care that makes WFAI special. He believes that every patient’s story deserves to be heard.
He enjoys forming relationships with his patients and working together to make them well. Outside of work, Dr. Weil Jr. enjoys spending time with his wife and children. They especially love cooking together and traveling the world. He also continues to spend plenty of time with his mother and father.

There aren’t enough words to describe how I feel about Dr Weil Jr. He truly is my favorite doctor and he literally goes above and beyond to make sure you are doing well. I had major foot surgery 6 years ago, couldn’t even touch my foot without excruciating pain. Dr Weil Jr took the time to try and heal without jumping straight to surgery. When these options didn’t seem to work, we then discussed in detail what surgery would accomplish. Because I felt so comfortable and I trust him, I went forward with it. He was with me through the ENTIRE process, checking on me and really invested in my healing. Best decision I ever made!! Had it June 5, and by August 24 I was walking down the aisle to get married!! Incredible! Fast forward to a week ago, Dr Weil Jr just removed a Morton’s Neuroma from my foot and today I’m walking in my regular gym shoe! He truly is THE MAN!! I would always recommend him, hands down! Thank you so much for giving life back to my feet!!
Dr. Weil Jr did a phenomenal job with my bunionettes (both feet). I was very nervous because this was my first surgery, but everyone spoke very highly of him and his technique. He definitely lived up to his reviews. It was great that I wasn't in a boot for 8 weeks and was only immobile for one week post surgery. After this first week, I slipped on my gym shoes and eased myself back into my every day life. I am now two months out and feel as if I am almost 100% back to my normal life. I am very happy with the results and recovery. Highly recommend.
I highly recommend Dr. Lowell Weil Jr if you are considering having your bunions removed. My feet are not only perfect now just several months later, but the entire experience cannot be topped. From the moment I met Dr. Weil, he assured me I was a candidate for the surgery, suggested doing both feet at the same time (thank goodness!) and talked me through every step of what the surgery and recovery would entail. He and his staff are incredibly professional, caring and compassionate. I am so happy with the final outcome - my feet no longer hurt, they look remarkably better, I can run, exercise, and wear all of the shoes I want to now, including high heels and pointy toes, all without discomfort. I seriously could not be happier. Make an appointment to see Dr. Weil Jr. at any of his locations. You won't be disappointed!
