Committed to Cleveland.
Elevating Patient Care.

Our Story


Elevate Foot & Ankle, formerly known as Neal A. Marks, DPM, Inc., has been serving both the east and west sides of Cleveland for over 25 years.  While our name has changed, our commitment to providing top-quality podiatric care has not.  In fact, under the new ownership of Dr. David Kretch, our goal is not only to continue but to elevate the personal, medical, and surgical care of our patients to a new level. We utilize the most innovative and cutting edge technologies available to date.

Introducing: Dr. David Kretch


Dr. Kretch began his podiatric journey years ago while working as a medical assistant at this very practice. He continued to intern at the office while studying podiatric medicine at Kent State University.  He then moved to Chicago to further his education and completed a surgical residency at Rush University Medical Center. He then gained valuable experience working in private practice in the Chicago area and in a teaching faculty role at Swedish Covenant Hospital. However, it was his ultimate desire to bring his knowledge and skills back to Cleveland that led him home to serve the community he loves.

Committed to Podiatric Excellence


Elevate Foot & Ankle has become a center of excellence and is leading the way in advancing the field of Podiatric Medicine. It is the aim of Dr. Kretch and his to team elevate the standard of care by providing the most modern and evidence-based foot and ankle treatments available in a caring and patient-centered environment.
