Dr. Tally was born in Southern California at Edwards Air Force Base and grew up in Sedalia, MO where he graduated from Smith Cotton High School in 2008 with honors. He attended the University of Missouri-Columbia, being accepted into the honors program, where he graduated with a B.S. in Biochemistry/Pre-Med with a minor in Economics in 2012. Upon graduation, Dr. Tally returned to Southern California to attend Western University of Health Sciences-Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine College. While at Western University he excelled in academics, patient care, and volunteering.
After graduating with his Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine, Dr. Tally was accepted into the longest standing podiatric surgical residency in the country at DeKalb Medical Center, now Emory Decatur Hospital. While in residency Dr. Tally was extensively and thoroughly trained in forefoot and rearfoot reconstructive surgery, trauma, diabetic wound care/limb salvage, lower extremity infections, pediatric foot deformities, and biomechanics. While in residency, Dr. Tally attended and spoke at numerous conferences across the country as a member of the Podiatry Institute thus expanding his knowledge base to better serve his patients. He was also published in the Podiatry Institute’s annual “Reconstructive Foot and Ankle Surgery Update Series” as well as authoring two research papers.
Dr. Tally’s motto is “No one ever realizes how many steps you take in a day until each step hurts” and believes the mobility of his patients is one of the most important aspects in their life. He has dedicated his life to helping people return to activities that they have otherwise been unable to participate in due to lower extremity conditions such as ingrown toenails, bunions, hammertoes, flatfeet, ankle sprains, and limb salvage secondary to traumatic injury and diabetic complications. His care and treatment of his patients is to the highest degree. To maintain the standard he has set for himself, Dr. Tally continues his medical education year-round staying up to date with the newest literature and practice principals.
