Dr. Sam Bernard

    We welcome Dr Sam Bernard to NextStep Foot & Ankle Centers!

    Dr Sam Bernard is originally from Galena, IL and moved to the state of Iowa for several years for school. However, he now resides in St. Charles, MO where he will begin practicing here at Next Step Foot & Ankle Centers! He received his podiatric medical degree from Des Moines University – College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery and completed his three-year podiatric residency at MercyOne Waterloo Medical Center in Waterloo, IA in the summer of 2022.

    When Dr Bernard is not treating patients, you can catch him outside hiking, fishing, camping, and hunting. Sometimes his sister, Dr Ellen Colgan, joins him on his outdoor adventures. He also enjoys eating good barbeque and cheering on the Iowa State Cyclones in his free time.
