Dr. Ray McClanahan, DPM
Dr. Ray McClanahan was born in Port Angeles, Washington to Larry and Judi McClanahan. He completed his undergraduate studies at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Education. Next, he attended Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine (now Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine), and graduated in 1995. Upon graduation, he completed a two-year podiatric, surgical residency training in Portland, Oregon, at Legacy Health Systems and Kaiser Permanente as a Podiatric Physician and Surgeon.
Dr. McClanahan’s practice, Northwest Foot & Ankle in Portland, Oregon, allows him to care for those who find their highest joy when in motion. In his 26 years as a podiatrist, he has learned that most foot problems can be corrected by restoring natural foot function. He is also the inventor of Correct Toes, silicone toe spacers. His professional goal is to provide quality natural foot health services with an emphasis on sports medicine, preventative and conservative options as well as education on proper footwear.
Dr. McClanahan is an active runner and athlete. In 1999, he finished 14th in the U.S. National Men’s Cross-Country Championships and had a near Olympic Trials qualifying 5,000 meter mark of 13:56 in 2000. He then qualified for the World Duathlon Championships in 2001.

Dr. Samuel Oltman, ND
Dr. Sam Oltman graduated with a Bachelors of Science from Oregon State University in Exercise and Sport Science where he was also a member of the Beavers football team playing wide receiver. He attended the National College of Natural Medicine, graduating with his Naturopathic Doctorate (ND), and then completed a rigorous 2-year primary care residency at Grain Integrative Health in SE Portland. He has advanced training in pain management, orthopedics, and regenerative injection therapies.
Dr. Oltman treats patients with the underlying presumption that the body contains the wisdom to heal itself- it simply needs the requisite inputs for enhanced healing and the removal of certain barriers that prevent healing. He believes that symptoms are not aberrations to be suppressed but rather wise expressions of nature pointing to where imbalance lies.
Dr. Oltman has done extensive advanced training in musculoskeletal ultrasound diagnostics and guided injection techniques. His credential, RMSK, is an expert level distinction in musculoskeletal ultrasound diagnostics and guided procedures. This expertise adds enormous value to the patient’s in-office evaluation as ultrasounds are used in real-time and adds precision to every injection. For many tendons and soft tissues, ultrasound is more detailed than an MRI.
As a lifelong athlete, Dr. Oltman has always been interested in how to optimize performance and physical fitness. Restoring natural foot function to his own feet years ago has made him a true believer and one who “walks the walk” when it comes to the barefoot lifestyle. As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Oltman also has deep insight into systemic and holistic strategies for enhancing performance on the track, field, trail, classroom or office.
An Oregon native, Dr. Oltman loves spending time with family and friends while maintaining an active lifestyle with biking, running, CrossFit, yoga, slacklining, hiking barefoot, basketball, ping pong and swimming in the lakes and rivers of the Cascades.
