Iowa native, Dr. Alyssa Zacharjasz was drawn to the healthcare field at a young age. After spending most of her teen years volunteering and working at Green County Medical Center, Medicap Pharmacy and MacFarland Clinic, Dr. Zacharjasz knew she wanted to dedicate her career to helping patients and caring for families. She graduated from Des Moines University with a Doctorate in Podiatry Medicine and went on to complete her residency in podiatric medicine and surgery at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Evansville, Indiana. There she served as the chief resident for her final year before joining the Mahaska Health family.
Dr. Zacharjasz believes in a conservative approach to treatment whenever possible and encourages patient involvement to determine the best plan of care. She is passionate about helping her patients return to the lifestyle and activities they enjoy.
She has surgical and non-surgical interests in bunion and hammertoe treatment and correction, ligament and tendon repair, ankle instability, sports medicine, foot and ankle trauma and fracture care, foot and ankle reconstructive surgery, and foot arthritis.
When Dr. Zacharjasz is not helping patients, she enjoys traveling, hiking, cooking, camping and volunteering in the community.
