Dr. Mark Fillari knew he wanted to become a doctor at an early age, but his specific interest in podiatry solidified after taking his grandparents to an appointment with their podiatrist. When the doctor heard about Dr. Fillari’s interest in medicine, he offered him an opportunity to shadow at the office and learn more about all aspects of the profession—from diabetic foot care to surgery to ingrown toenails to sports medicine.
After earning his Bachelor of Science in biology at Rutgers University, Dr. Fillari attended Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine in Philadelphia, graduating as salutatorian in 2016.
He completed his 3-year post-graduate podiatric medicine and surgical residency training at Jefferson Health – Kennedy University Hospital in Stratford, NJ, serving as chief resident for his final year. He also received the American Board of Podiatric Medicine Podiatric Merit Award in 2016. Dr. Fillari is board-certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine.
In his spare time, Dr. Fillari enjoys working out, playing sports, going to the beach, spending time with family, and keeping up with surgical journals. He has also previously served as a volunteer podiatric assistant for Foot Health Centers and as a volunteer with special needs children at a summer camp.
