Eric Meehan, DPM, is a board-certified podiatrist practicing at South County Foot & Ankle’s locations in Wakefield and Westerly, Rhode Island.

Born in South County, Rhode Island, Dr. Meehan completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston and earned his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine in 2007 from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After completing a rigorous residency at Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island, Dr. Meehan is well trained in diagnosing and treating routine and complex foot and ankle issues.

Dr. Meehan’s love of athletics, and running in particular, led him to the world of podiatry following his own podiatric injuries. Podiatric treatments and surgery have allowed him to continue to do what he loves, and he hopes to bring this same experience to his patients.

Dr. Meehan is certified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery in both foot surgery and reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.

Outside of the office, Dr. Meehan enjoys spending time with his wife and children, entertaining family and friends, and enjoying the outdoors.
