About Dr. Keating

Dr. Keating is a board certified podiatrist who sees types of podiatric patients, from diabetic foot care to reconstructive work to bunions and hammertoes. He recognizes the individualized needs of each patient, and is particularly sensitive to the fears and self-consciousness that often accompany health concerns. His initial approach to care is rooted in conservative measures, exhausting non-surgical therapies before recommending surgical intervention. He uses this approach to help patients feeling comfortable with his care, and trusting of his medical expertise.

Dr. Keating is a 3rd generation podiatrist - in fact, several members of his family are also practicing podiatrists at Excelsior! When he’s not working, he spends most of his time with family and friends. He’s an avid athlete, and enjoys running, golfing, playing basketball or soccer - anything to stay active and competitive. He enjoys making the most of the spectacular Buffalo food scene, and loves exploring restaurants and bars both locally and while traveling.

What drew you to a career in podiatry?


“I always wanted to pursue a career that allowed me to help others, so I knew at an early age that I wanted to go into medicine. I explored a lot of different specialties to see what called out to me. My grandfather, father and uncle were all podiatrists. I could not fight off the urge to follow in my family’s footsteps! Not only am I a 3rd generation podiatrist to practice in Buffalo, I’m also a 3rd generation graduate from St. Bonaventure.”

If you weren’t a physician, what else would you want to be doing?


“My dream as a kid was to be a professional athlete - I loved all sports and they consumed my life. Now, I think I’d probably be working in finance in some way. Math was my favorite subject, and I think that finance utilizes creative problem solving.”
