This husband and wife duo has worked tirelessly to cultivate the best technology and knowledge available to provide specialized foot and ankle care to the North Florida Community. Before becoming managing partners of North Florida Foot & Ankle Specialists, Sarina and Joshua met each other in medical school where their love for each other and the practice of medicine blossomed. The Doctors got married in 2017 and then went on to complete prestigious surgical residencies and postdoctoral Fellowships in Florida and Georgia. Dr. Joshua Epstein has long loved the North Florida community having spent summers with his grandfather, enjoying the outdoors on his acreage in Live Oak, Florida. Dr. Sarina Epstein shares his love of the outdoors and the kindness and compassion of the North Florida community. Over the past decades long education, the Doctors have trained under some of the best surgeons in the country and cannot wait to make their knowledge and expertise available to Gainesville and the surrounding areas.
