Professional podiatrist since 1997 and podiatric foot and ankle surgeon since 2001, Dr. Kibler brings a holistic approach to medicine and surgery in order to find affordable, comfortable and effective solutions for everyone.


A passion for helping others garnered him the American Legion Scholarship for Altruism while achieving a bachelor of science degree at Juniata College, Huntingdon, PA. After a premedical scholarship year at the University of Leeds in England, he studied and received a doctor of podiatric medicine degree from the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine which is now Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia. Following his passion of working with his hands to fix problems, he completed one of the most respected foot & ankle surgery residencies in the world at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center in Philadelphia.
