Dr. Hix obtained a bachelors degree from Brigham Young University and his podiatry degree from the College of Podiatric Medicine and Surgery of Des Moines University. He then went on to successfully complete a rigorous 3 year podiatric medicine and surgery residency at the West Penn Hospital in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.
Upon completion of his training he and his family moved to the inland northwest for the beautiful surroundings, great people, strong family oriented neighborhoods, and a general lack of mosquitoes and humidity. After a year in a group clinic Dr. Hix felt inspired to open his own practice to serve the good people of northern Idaho and thus Hayden Family Foot & Ankle Clinic was born in Sept 2009.
Dr. Hix enjoys this area and the people and says he feels right at home. He enjoys camping and fishing with his family and has been known to dabble in music, photography, painting, and other various creative outlets.
Patient’s have said that what sets him apart is perhaps his ability to listen, assess someones needs, educate them on options, and then go the extra mile to try to help them out.
