Dr. Diana Emini
DM Foot & Ankle Associates
Dr. Emini earned her bachelor’s degree from University of Illinois at Chicago and her Doctorate degree from the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine. She completed her surgical residency at Loretto Hopsital, with affiliated training at Rush Oak Park, Gottlieb, and MacNeal Hospitals.
Dr. Emini knew she wanted to be a doctor since the third grade. After being a student volunteer in high school, she had the opportunity to shadow various doctors with differing specialties. Being a foot and ankle physician encompassed many subspecialities such as skin and bone surgery, dermatology, musculoskeletal injuries, and maintaining good foot health in the rising diabetic population. She was intrigued by all the facets that went into the foot and ankle specialty and decided to pursue this as her career.

When They Met…
Doctors Emini and Kim had the pleasure of being colleagues during their surgical residency. Both doctors earned the honors of Chief Surgical Resident for their respective years in the program. It was during their training that they met and became good friends. The doctors found that they share the same philosophy with regard to patient care and decided to open their medical practice together as partners.
The physicians believe in developing caring relationships with everyone they treat and establishing a level of mutual trust with their patients. They both enjoyed volunteering their time to teach medical students and to host free foot screenings for the public. They love what they do and want to take that extra step for their patients.
We believe that our service to you extends with our staff members as well. They take great measures to ensure that your time with us is valued and comfortable and that your concerns are thoroughly addressed.
