Administrative Assistant

Most of the time, Samantha will be the first one to greet you at Illinois Foot & Ankle Center. She works hard to find the best appointment times available for patients and welcomes them warmly when they arrive. If you have questions, Samantha will almost always find you an answer.


Clinical Assistant

Carrie joined us in 2020, and we are thrilled to have her pleasant attitude in the office every day. She will make you feel welcomed as she gets you into an exam room and prepares you to see Dr. May.

Scott mostly works behind the scenes, though you may see him around the office occasionally. He handles the business, marketing, and financial aspects of the practice. If you have a question about insurance or billing, he’s your guy.
