Welcome to Our Practice


Crystal Falls Foot + Ankle Specialists was founded by Doctors Brian Hochman and Van Dao Hochman, a husband and wife team. As the first podiatric practice in Leander, Texas, we pride ourselves in healing our community through traditional as well as alternative techniques to provide efficient and effective care to our patients.

Our goal is to resolve all of your foot + ankle concerns by any means necessary. We will apply our extensive podiatric training, starting with the most conservative techniques available today. By restoring proper biomechanics to your lower extremity, we hope to keep you active in your favorite activities for many years to come.

Drs. Brian Hochman and Van Dao Hochman are both licensed podiatric physicians (DPM). Their focus is in lower extremity biomechanics, both conservative and surgical techniques, and in the treatment of adults and children alike.

We encourage our patients to be informed about their lower extremity concerns because informed patients make better decisions about their health and well-being. To assist in your education, we have included educational videos which discuss common pathologies which can be found here. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your feet.

In the event that you have any lower extremity concerns, we hope you will come visit us at Crystal Falls Foot + Ankle Specialists.  We will work to see you in a timely manner and get you back to your routine as soon as possible.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have or to request an appointment. We hope you'll find our practice offers the accessibility and personal commitment you look for from a physician.
