Ralph S. Sprinkle, D.P.M.

Dr. Ralph Sprinkle was born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina where he was one of six sons of well known Podiatrist, Dr. Robert L. Sprinkle. Growing up passionate about foot health, Dr Ralph Sprinkle decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine. In addition, two other brothers also became Podiatrists.

Dr Ralph Sprinkle moved to Pawleys Island in 1990 where he established his podiatric practice in Georgetown and Murrells Inlet, SC. Serving patients along the Grand Strand for more than 25 years, Dr Sprinkle has recently consolidated both offices into his new location in Pawleys Island, South Carolina.
