Craig McLaws

Dr. McLaws was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona as part of the construction family. His undergraduate education was at Arizona State University in bio-medical physics. He attended and graduated from the California College of Podiatric Medicine in San Francisco, CA where he received his Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine (DPM). He returned to Scottsdale, AZ for extensive training in podiatric surgery.

His best friend in medical school was from Wyoming and often told him hunting and fishing stories (lies mostly). It perked his interest and during his senior year Dr. McLaws fulfilled a 1 month hospital rotation in Missoula, Montana. That month changed the course of his life and after surgical training he moved north to open The Foot Care Center and was the only podiatrist in the north half of Wyoming. The practice expanded with multiple clinics and physicians and in 2003, he moved to Billings and started the Billings, MT office.

Craig is married and loves Wyoming and Montana. They have five children and eight grandchildren - with one on the way! He has run 5 marathons and enjoys time with his family. His grandkids all call him "Granddaddy".

Discharge instructions will be provided over the phone, and patients will be wheel chaired out to the vehicle for pick up.
