Northeast Iowa Podiatry was started by Dr. William W. Gronen in 1973. Our first location was in the professional building at Covenant Medical Center.       Dr. Terry K. Lichty joined the practice in 1976. Additional offices were opened in Grundy Center, Iowa in 1989, New Hampton, Iowa in 1998, and Manchester, Iowa in 2011.

The Surgical Residency Program began in 1981 through Covenant Medical Center with Dr. Lichty, director.

In 1998, Dr. Stephen M. Solomon joined the practice. Dr. Gronen retired from the Waterloo practice in 1998 and the New Hampton practice in 2006.
Dr. Lichty retired in August, 2001. We moved into our current Waterloo location, 44 Brookeridge Drive, in the fall of 2010. Dr. Solomon currently treats patients in our Waterloo and Grundy Center locations.
