Danny's Headshots Picture 3Dr. Hall was raised in Newburgh, Indiana, a small town in rural Southern Indiana where compassion and care for one’s community was ingrained into his beliefs from a young age.  He excelled in the classroom graduating from Castle High School with honors. He shined on the soccer field, but chose to pursue a career in medicine. Dr. Hall attended Indiana University on a pre-medical scholarship and graduated with distinction earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry. Following completion of his undergraduate work, he secured a merit scholarship to attend the William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine at Rosalind Franklin University where he earned his doctorate and graduated in the top 20% of his class.

He completed his residency training at the nationally recognized South Miami Hospital of Baptist Health in Miami, Florida where he served as chief resident and performed over 2,000 procedures.  Dr. Hall is trained in numerous surgical techniques with an emphasis on reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, including diabetic limb salvage with internal/external fixation and cosmetic foot surgery. Additionally, he learned various skin closure and skin grafting techniques to minimize scar visibility and accelerate wound healing under the direction of renowned plastic surgeons at South Miami Hospital.

Dr. Hall has developed a keen interest in diabetic foot care and limb salvage, and he has co-authored multiple publications in Podiatry Today andPodiatry Management on reconstructive foot and ankle surgery techniques and post-operative care in the diabetic population.  He also served as a volunteer participant in the Yucatan Crippled Children’s Project (YCCP) co-sponsored by Barry University and the International Foot and Ankle Foundation in Merida, Mexico during which he earned valuable experience in pediatric foot and ankle deformity treatment and surgical correction. Dr. Hall also served as a surgical clinical course leader for the Miami-Dade College Physician Assistant program, discussing common foot and ankle injuries and participating in multiple suture workshops.

After the completion of his residency training, Dr. Hall co-founded Louisiana Foot and Ankle Specialists in Lake Charles, Louisiana with his wife, Dr. Mallory Przybylski. He is Board Qualified in foot and reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgeons.  He is an active member of multiple podiatric societies and is dedicated to continuing education and keeping up with the most innovative treatments available.

In his free time, he enjoys outdoor activities, traveling, cooking, sporting events and spending time with his family, friends and four rescue dogs. He is proud to be a part of the Lake Charles community and is a compassionate, kind physician who is fully invested in providing the highest quality of patient care.
