John A. Marty


John A. Marty was born the oldest sibling with four sisters to follow in McCandless Township, a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA. He graduated from North Catholic High School in 1972. Growing up, he played football and enjoyed hunting (which he still does today). Dr. Marty also played in the youth band at church. After graduating from Bethany College in 1976 with a degree in biology, he then enrolled at Duquesne University to major in microbiology. He worked many jobs going through school including professor student assistant, ambulance driver, phlebotomist, construction crew and construction crew supervisor. While attending Duquense University he was still uncertain about his future. One day while cleaning the siding of a neighbor's house, the woman came out and they started to talk. She said she was going to a podiatrist recommended he consider this as a career. He spoke with Dr Cercone her podiatrist that week and from that day on he knew what he wanted to do professionally.

Dr. Marty received his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree from the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine (part of Temple University) in 1983. At the end of medical school he met his wife to be, Marion. After Dr. Marty performed his surgical residency at Pittsburgh Podiatry Hospital, he opened his private practice in Kittaning and married Marion.

He selected Kittaning when he became familiar with the area while working with Public Health Services during medical school and providing services in an area which experienced a shortage of podiatrists. With family and friends, he was able to remodel a building into his current office practice.

Dr. Marty is considers podiatry a very important part in the medical/surgical care of people, and is available to the public to speak on proper foot health care. He has held several offices within the Pennsylvania Podiatric Medical Association, including President in 1996. He has published articles, and has received the "Podiatrist of the Year" award in 1999. In 2001, he received the prestigious "Dr. Edward McQuaid Award" for his endless hours in continuing education of Podiatrists. Dr. Marty currently serves as President of the Educational Foundation of PPMA.

Dr. Marty loves practicing in Kittaning, and calls it home with his wife, Marion, and two children, John III and Christine.
