Meet Jason George DeVries, DPM
Thu, Apr 19, 2018
How often is BayCare Clinic’s Jason George DeVries reminded he chose the right career? Every day.
“We have people who come in and leave feeling much better,” he says. “Some people come in thinking they’d never walk again, but are able to get back to the activity that they like and do the things they want. It feels really good knowing that.”
“My dad was a podiatrist. Growing up, I got to see him, people knew him, and he was helpful. That’s what got me into it in the first place,” DeVries says. “I really didn’t consider too many other things. I was strongly encouraged by my father to look into traditional medical school, but didn’t. I was happy with what he did and I felt it fit well for me.”
After seeing his father’s success, DeVries is working to make his own mark.
“I do a lot with research and publications. It’s outside of what I do as a practicing clinical physician,” he says. “I have a couple papers coming through that I’ve done with the research team and my partner, Dr. Brandon Scharer. I spend a fair amount of time writing, giving talks, and publishing book chapters.”
He’s also proud of a recent accomplishment by BayCare Clinic’s foot and ankle team. The team opened a new location on Ridge Road in Ashwaubenon, a sign of continued growth.
“It’s been very exciting. The place that we had wasn’t large enough to house the whole team,” he says. “I really like the idea of Ridge Road to have a centralized location. It’s already running like a well-oiled machine because of the great team we have out there.”
While DeVries enjoys being a surgeon and helping his patients, he has a hobby he enjoys just as much.
“The biggest thing I do is I water ski. I’ve been doing that for a lot of years and now all my kids do it,” DeVries says. “We all work together and each of us now does it. Where I thought I’d get a lot of skiing time, my kids now demand their own time.”
