Meet Dr. Tomlinson

Loyd Tomlinson, DPM, is a podiatrist with the team at Cortez Foot & Ankle Specialists. Dr. Tomlinson has extensive training in surgical and podiatric trauma care and sees patients at the practice’s offices in Bradenton, Sarasota, and Ellenton, Florida. 

Dr. Tomlinson received his bachelor’s degree in biomedical science from the University of South Florida and received his doctorate from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, where he was an American Podiatric Medical Association Student Delegate and a Pi Mu Delta recipient. He completed his three-year surgical training at Forest Hills Hospital in Queens, which included experience at a Level-1 trauma center. During this time, Dr. Tomlinson was trained in every aspect of lower extremity care, from high-velocity trauma to diabetic wounds and routine foot care. It was evident that all injuries impact a patient’s daily activity level and require a detailed treatment plan. Today, he continues to serve as an associate member of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.

Dr. Tomlinson has enjoyed numerous opportunities to volunteer in a medical capacity. He participated in many free foot screenings throughout New York City, including the NYC Marathon, and has been a keynote speaker to the APMSA House of Delegates. With a long-time interest in medical mission work, he traveled to Honduras in January 2019 with Operation Footprint to perform corrective surgery for children with clubfoot. Operation Footprint is a non-profit organization whose goal is to perform surgery, deliver medical supplies, and train local physicians and nurses in the diagnosis and treatment of lower extremity deformities.

Dr. Tomlinson is excited to be back in the Gulf Coast area and join the team at Cortez Foot & Ankle Specialists. Born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida, Dr. Tomlinson said the Gulf Coast was a great place to grow up and would be a great place to raise his family. He looks forward to being active in the medical communities of Manatee and Sarasota Counties. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and sons and likes scuba diving, fishing, and playing pick-up soccer.
