My Approach to Care

My passion and focus is patient care. I am committed to patient education and clear communication to identify the best treatments to suit each patient’s lifestyle. Whenever possible, my focus is to optimize non-surgical treatments. When surgery is required, I approach surgery with meticulous attention to detail to achieve desired outcomes.

Areas of expertise include:

  • Foot and ankle injuries and fractures
  • Sports medicine
  • Foot and ankle reconstruction
  • Arthritis
  • Instability
  • Acquired deformities – a change in the normal size or shape of a body part as a result of injury, infection, arthritis or tumor
  • Pediatrics
  • Complex deformity correction
  • Total ankle replacement

Dr. So is extensively involved in research to improve patient care. He has authored more than 30 peer-reviewed articles and textbook chapters. Currently, he leads several projects aimed at lowering infection rates after total ankle replacement and investigating bone health and osteoporotic fractures of the foot and ankle. He is involved in several ongoing multi-center clinical trials. He has advanced training in foot and ankle surgery by completing a fellowship at the renowned CORE Institute. He has performed over 50 total ankle replacement surgeries. He stays up to date with cutting edge technology and recent advancements in medicine, and utilizes evidence-based medicine to deliver individualized patient care.

Dr So was amazing. He went over everything and explaining options and recovery times. Five ?????????? Service.
June 06, 2022
The receptionist I checked in with didn't seem very friendly or like she didn't want to be there. Not sure what her name was but if your facing the receptionists as you walk in, she sat at the desk on the left. Everybody else seemed very helpful and friendly.
June 03, 2022
Dr So answered all of my questions and explained everything in detail. He took his time and made me feel comfortable.
May 31, 2022
You're very concerned about my well-being with my feet and he knows now that I am a diabetic and also I would like to let him know that there's a shoe out there called The beast and I didn't know if I could get a prescription or something from you guys to get those cuz I guess the insurance company I've been told will pay for it
May 31, 2022
I am a women and have a lot of knee surgeries so I'm used to being around orthopedic surgeons. Dr. So does not talk to be like I'm an idiot. This is incredibly refreshing and rare.
May 27, 2022
Dr. So has the best personality. When I look for a doctor I always look at their sense of humor and their, so called bedside humor, personality.

May 16, 2022
This was my second visit with Dr. So. After the first, I wasn't sure about him because he was pretty abrupt in his dealings with me, even though he answered all my questions completely. During this visit, he seemed to actually know me and my foot problems and was much more engaging. I'm glad he's my podiatrist!! Thank you, Dr. So!
May 12, 2022
I had a hard time getting the doctors dressings peeled off of the nail beds it molded the the nail bed

Dr So is great. We are glad to have found him for our foot care!!
April 22, 2022
Very impressed how quickly I was in and out of there. Maybe it's because I was first patient of the day? Nevertheless I really appreciated how quick the whole experience went. I do wish we could move past the face mask wearing situation.
April 21, 2022
Dr. So is one of the best!
April 21, 2022
Very professional, personable, and put me at ease. Pleasant experience by Dr and staff
April 19, 2022
It is what it is ,is not an answer,I was not told any other options except for a shoe insole!!
April 19, 2022
Man. I really liked that you were able to fit me in. And I actually felt comfortable there. I'm very picky about my doctor's and I didn't feel. Uneasy. If that makes any sense. I liked doctor so very much. Very seemed.
April 19, 2022
Great advice from Terry and a great pair of orthotics--they are already helping. Dr.So so gracious in agreeing to see me and his medical attention. I rate a top 10 for all.

Positive experience with all staff members. Impressed with timeliness of appointment completed.
April 19, 2022
Hi, he was they were very, very helpful. They were very considerate. They were very polite. Dr. So was extremely intelligent about the situation.
April 18, 2022
I find it ironic that a person that has foot or ankle problems has to walk a mile to get your office. Thanks.
April 15, 2022
Dr. So and his staff are extremely nice, do things in timely manner and answer any questions we have. Dr. So is very down to earth and doesn't talk to us like he's above us. I will most definitely recommend him
April 14, 2022
They do a good job.
April 14, 2022
Dr. So seemed interested in my condition and is working to solve the situation. I appreciate his efforts and concern.
April 12, 2022
April 11, 2022
Everything was fine, except I did purchase some insoles Arches from you. I got home and tried 1 and one of my shoes and they did not work at all. I attempted to bring them back and was told that I could not return them. So, I'm now out $50 and I was not made aware that they were not able to be returned. Otherwise, I should have tried them there in the office. So in the future, it would it be good if you would advise patience on that. Thank you.
April 08, 2022
Great visit, questions were answered. He did. Well timely, I will go back.
April 07, 2022
Dr So was so nice and patient. I really appreciate his knowledge. Thank you!
March 29, 2022
Dr. So was a very professional very knowledgeable. And explained everything I needed to do. If I got a great discount, it'd be even better. LOL. No, he was outstanding one of the best doctors I've ever seen. Thank you so much.
March 29, 2022
ladies at the front desk also VERY nice to work with!
March 29, 2022
It was a great visit. Everyone in the office we interacted with were helpful, very pleasant and treated us kindly. You can tell office staff enjoy their jobs. Dr. So explained may situation to my husband and I, he answered questions, came up with a plan.
March 28, 2022
Ashley (nurse) was very helpful and explained things.
March 22, 2022
Office was easy to find. Everyone was very nice and helpful. It was a good experience Thank you.
March 22, 2022
They worked my appointment in to help me time wise since I needed some one to bring me in. Thank you!
March 21, 2022
Dr. So is excellent. New office is nice.
March 15, 2022
before I contacted the clinic, I did my research and picked Dr Vest to work on me.. At my appt, I was told he was called to an emergency surgery and I'd have to see Dr So. I like the guy, but this wasnt my plan. I have yet to meet the guy Im wanting. Ive done no research on Dr So. I'm dissapointed.
March 11, 2022
Felt very comfortable
March 11, 2022
I was really interested with the doctor and I would make sure that other people knew that he he would find person to have. Did help and (INAUDIBLE) help us get better. Thank you.
March 10, 2022
Dr So has been an exemplary provider through out the process. I have always felt he was concerned about my recovery and was willing to whatever it took to assure that I had a good outcome.
March 10, 2022
I'm still waiting to see what my test results will be yet. When my Dr. tells me results, next step, I can give the ratings.
March 03, 2022
Don't change a thing, the entire staff from the receptionist to everybody else was perfect.
February 28, 2022
I was very happy with Eric So he has done several surgeries on my feet from the very beginning I saw him as an emergency patient in his office. He's very well spoken. He's explains things very well, and I'm very sure that he's the competence surgeon.
February 28, 2022
I waited 40 minutes after my appointment time to have the doctor come in for less than 5 minutes. While I was able to get a solution to my problem, he seemed very rushed and came off like "here's your answer, schedule when you can, I need to go". He was a very nice guy, just maybe not the best bedside manner
February 22, 2022
I had a great experience and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
February 21, 2022
Yes, the staff that escorted me into the into the office to be seen we're really professional, with taking my blood pressure and making sure I'm okay. Eric when he came in Mr. So was really polite, really nice. He sat there and listened to me. He didn't interrupt, he gave me all the feedback. I needed to take care of myself, he made sure that I understood what he was saying. He really looked at my foot, and was really understanding, knowing exactly where the pain was, and where it is, and he ordered the right stuff to help get my foot to heal. I mean, I would recommend him his staff anytime because they're really spectacular and I really appreciate them. I really do. And they scheduled me for follow up. I mean, it really professional really professional.
February 21, 2022
You've done very good with me. Thank you.
February 10, 2022
Everything went pretty well.
February 03, 2022
Dr So is extremely pleasant and knowledgeable, I will continue in his care when needed.
January 21, 2022
I thought it was great when I arrived at 4 th for that. signs were posted leading me to their office. Very thoughtful! The receptionist greeted me warmly and proceeded my new patient information quickly and efficiently. My favorite part was when she asked me if she could get me anything else. I felt so pampered! Ashley greeted me warmly and she and her friend did such a good job x-raying my feet. Dr. So is one sharp podiatrist! He is very knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. He knew immediately what was going on and gave me some things I could do to relieve the pain. I am super pleased that I 'happened' to choose Capital Foot and Ankle for my foot concerns! What a positive experience!
January 18, 2022
Dr. So was so personable and so knowledgeable and had a way of explaining everything, so it could be understood to me. He laid out all of my treatment options and a specific plan of action and made. He was one of the few doctors that seemed to really take a personal interest and was not in a hurry whatsoever. Very much took his time and made me feel so important. I could tell he very much truly cared.
January 17, 2022
Dr. So listens carefully to his patients and answers all questions thoroughly
January 11, 2022
This was my second appointment with Dr. So. His attentive, calming, and knowledgeable demeanor ensured me that what I need done in the future, I will without a doubt put my care in his hands.
January 10, 2022
I was very put at ease by D. So's manner...he was an excellent listener and explained procedures well and he fixed me up with a brace that is working well...I am very grateful,to br on a road to recovery!!! Thank you ?
January 06, 2022
Loved my experience and felt very cared for! Thank you!
January 03, 2022
All of the medical staff were great; friendly, welcoming, and competent.
January 03, 2022
Everyone in the office was professional and attentive to my needs. Dr. So is an extremely talented and probably one of the best doctors I've ever met! His staff, also, the best I've experienced in my 58 years. Recommend them highly!
January 03, 2022
I guess the only thing I can say about the only rebuttal I would have would be that. I wanted my place to do a scan which I know it's not called the CAT scan but anyways, I just wanted to get scan to see if there was any kind of muscle structures of how to place something like that because you said I had a fracture something like a fractured bone or something but I don't believe that because I don't know. I just know whenever break so let's put it that way alright, otherwise, I would have never been hit by the 21 cars and still survive let's put it that way so that's the only thing I can say about that and so that's why I wanted my cat scan on my foot see if it was just muscle structure that was out of place or maybe just, you know, like a sore muscles like some type of muscle that might have been out and that's why it's bruise or it just could be an infection and I don't know about it and I just need antibiotics.
December 30, 2021
Dr. So cares about my feet, but he also cares about me as a person.
December 27, 2021
My experience with capital foot and ankle was excellent. From the first appointment to last I felt like my healthcare needs were met!
December 14, 2021
Upon arriving, I was pleasantly and promptly greeted by a front desk staff member. I signed the necessary documents and was asked to have a seat. I was called back within a few minutes. The CMA was also pleasant and we reviewed my meds before she took me for x-rays of my feet. A few minutes later, I was discussing my concerns with Dr. So. He was professional and really took the time to answer my questions and educate me on what the surgery and recovery would entail. I am very happy I chose Dr. So and Capital Foot!
December 13, 2021
Dr So is very thoughtful, listens effectively, and provided care and instructions that will help me heal.
December 10, 2021
I was very pleased with the entire staff and Dr. So, all were professional and let me know all options and what to expect after surgery.
December 07, 2021
Dr. So was fantastic! He was attentive, thorough, humble and answered all of my questions. I will definitely recommend him in the future to anyone and everyone!
November 18, 2021
The doctor could not pull up my old records from the old clinic to compare my X-ray results or see last visit notes from when I was seen last at Capital foot and Ankle at old location! That was surprising and would have been appreciated and appropriate to give good care!
November 08, 2021
I had a very good experience, I hardly had any swelling and I really had a really good outcome so far, but I was very pleased with everything and they kept giving me (INAUDIBLE) shots and try as long as I needed them. And I really appreciated that.
November 04, 2021
Thank you for the attention you had for me. God bless you, goodbye.
November 01, 2021
I appreciated his knowledge, his compassion, and his thoroughness.
November 01, 2021
Dr. So was doing a great job and her staff. He was doing excellent. Thank you so much for all hard work you do. Thank you. Thank you.
October 28, 2021
Excellent medical care in Lincoln Nebraska. I am very grateful.
October 26, 2021
My experience with this provider was excellent. It was a very nice... ready, ready to go, and to discover more that I needed to know about my problem, and he was very sympathetic and very nice to me, and he used his time freely to tell me what I needed to know, and asked me to make my next appointment to follow up on everything that I had asked. And so, I wanted to thank him and I was very confident that my next session would be even better than this.
October 26, 2021
He did it great
October 25, 2021
Hello, nurse was very organized and got everything ready for Dr. So and when he came in, he was very professional and educated us on what was going to happen, and we had a very good experience.
October 21, 2021
Dr. So had a lot of Charisma, and he was a good listener. Thank you.
October 18, 2021
I was placed in a "boot". It would have been helpful if the nurse would have given us better instructions about how to put the boot on when I needed to do it by myself. It took several tries before I could get it right.
October 12, 2021
Waiting for more information from Cindy on my visit as we discussed surgery and will need more information to get the plan in motion.
October 12, 2021
Terrible location,,very difficult for patients that struggle with mobility. The previous location was far better. Would not recommend this Dr office because of the location, the care is wonderful, not the location..
October 11, 2021
Doctor and staff were very professional and competent. Problem was addressed and treated.
October 07, 2021
I'd like you to know how much I think of Dr. So he met me at the hospital. Preformed, the surgery, two and a half hour later. I was out of surgery and I am on my way to Healing. I am positive of it. Thank you.
October 07, 2021
Dr. So was very professional and knowledgeable. And Nadine's care was wonderful. In fact I made another appointment with Nadine for November.
September 28, 2021
Very good and kind doctor!!!
September 27, 2021
Quick, professional, friendly
September 27, 2021
Waiting a long time to be seen but the doctor listened and explained things very well. It is great to have an answer to an ailment.
September 24, 2021
I wish I'd made this appointment sooner! I bet all of your new patients say that.
September 23, 2021
I was very impressed with the care I received. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. So was great! He explained everything very well and asked if I had questions. He listened to me! I didn't feel rushed like I do with so many other doctors. He made me feel as if I was his only patient and he had all the time in the world to tend to my needs.
September 20, 2021
It is so refreshing to meet, and be treated by, a kind, professional, understanding expert.
September 20, 2021
Dr. So listened to me and was very caring in his treatment to my foot pain. He provided me with information and different options to my treatment.
September 17, 2021
Dr. So was willing to listen to my concerns and talk about options. Which I appreciate.
September 13, 2021
Dr. So is all around amazing!!! Thanks for everything looking forward to better health and my foot will give me a higher level of my yoga experience!!!
August 31, 2021
My daughter brought me to your office for an appt. on Tues. Morning, Aug. 31st. Megan, the nurse was in my room almost right away taking my blood pressure, etc. Very kind and then Dr. So came in to examine my infected fungus toe nail and said he felt we should proceed with removing the toe nail right away. I had not taken my Eliquis blood thinner thinking maybe they would néed to remove it again! I had been started on an Antibiotic by Dr. Cui at Urgent Care the night before. He recommended calling your office & get worked in the next day. We are thankful you worked us in right away. Thank you for your kind & prompt care. Was very pleased & soaked this morning & ready to do that again now. Also elevating which makes it feel good, too.
August 30, 2021
My experience from start to finish was great. Dr So explained the XRays in detail, with a recommendation to correct the foot problem. The only thing that causes me concern is the $450+ approximate cost of orthotics. This strains the budget for a retired individual. Other than that, the appointment went very well.
August 26, 2021
You need to know - I am 71 years old & this was my first visit with Eric So, DPM so there was no way he would be familiar with any of my medical history. However - during our visit he allowed me time to provide it as it is important to me and my particular reason for asking to be seen at Capital Foot & Ankle. My request for an appointment was responded to quickly. I was seen quite soon after the initial request. Dr. Eric and the staff at CF&A were extraordinarily thorough - and patient with me (I tend to "run on" with my explanations). My questions were thoughtfully answered and my concerns addressed. I will be scheduled for "quality of life" (elective) surgery with Dr. Eric in the near future. I am completely confident the result will provide the result he and I hope to achieve.
August 26, 2021
Absolutely amazing service. Thank you so much!
August 23, 2021
Hi like Dr. So, so much. He not even not only looked at my foot, but he told me where to go for my elbow, Dr. Byington. He referred me to that wonderful doctor. And I thank you, I will be there again. Definitely anytime I have a foot issue I will be seeing Dr. So. Thank you very much and have a blessed day.
August 20, 2021
Great care
August 20, 2021
Dr So recognized the problem, explained it well and told me the options for care. Everyone was friendly and helpful-thankful I went there. A+
August 17, 2021
When I had surgery with Dr. So I just thought he was very Informative, he spoke my language, he didn't dumb it down, but it didn't sound confusing either. He just made it very easy to understand and he's very relatable, easy to talk to and I just had an overall good experience. Now I have had surgery before,(INAUDIBLE) when I was young. I don't even really remember it. So as far as I'm concerned, this to me appears to be my first surgery and you know, I thought it went very well. He calms a lot of anxiety,answered a lot of the questions and was very helpful overall. Thank you.
August 16, 2021
I believe Dr So and his staff are wonderful. I would totally recommend them to others. ??????
August 03, 2021
This Practice is excellent all around!
August 02, 2021
I was excited that Dr. So knew what was wrong and could show me/explain what was going on. He also told me about any next steps and what might happen. The front desk lady and Meghan were super nice too. :)
July 30, 2021
Was disappointed that I couldn't get in until mid-September to get orthotics for my painful foot.
July 16, 2021
Dr So was great! He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and took his time.
July 09, 2021
My doctor said it was very important that I start taking a prescribed antibiotic that was supposed to be sent to Walgreens. It has not been sent to Walgreens and I'm not taking antibiotic because it's not available because it wasn't called in.
July 09, 2021
The nurse that came and got got, it was on the ball, she was quick and fast and doing what she was doing needed to do, and she got the X-ray quickly, and we came right back to the room, and she, she just she knew ... you felt confident in her, because she was confident That's, that's what I had to say about the nurse I guess, and the doctor was very easy to talk to and he did sit with us a little bit. He gave you a chance to say something to tell him a little bit more about yourself. So he knew about you a little more and that was good. so, I guess that's all I've got to say about it was good and didn't have no complaints so.
July 08, 2021
While the wait was kind of long, the receptionist was very kind.
