Founding partner, Rhode Island Foot Care, Inc. 1995-present. Dr. Michael Battey has been a Rhode Island-based podiatrist for thirty years providing comprehensive foot and ankle care to thousands of children and adults, referred by satisfied patients, and regional physicians.

He later served the certifying board as an oral examiner and committee member for many years. Currently, Dr. Battey maintains an active office practice, and performs hospital consultations as requested.
Dr. Battey developed and chaired the first podiatric surgical residency in Rhode Island in 1983 at the former Cranston General Hospital Osteopathic, Cranston, RI. He led the program through a change in sponsor to Roger Williams Medical Center in 1991 and continued as Director of Podiatric Medical Education through 1996. He was asked to return as Residency Director in 2005, and currently maintains that position.

Dr. Battey’s focus has been in education, serving as an evaluation team chair, appeal committee chair, and review committee member for the Council on Podiatric Medical Education. He has inspected surgical training programs in over fifty medical centers nationwide since 1987. Additionally, he has served as the Chair of the American Podiatric Medical Association’s Education Sub-committee on Residency Enhancement.

Locally, Dr. Battey has served in multiple professional positions including President of the Rhode Island Podiatric Medical Association in 1994-95, and Chair of the Board of Podiatric Licensure, Rhode Island Department of Health from 1997-99.

Dr. Battey’s civic involvement includes board membership within not for profit organizations, with a special interest in local public education within the town of East Greenwich.
