Review for Dr. Bradley Makimaa, DPM

Dr. Makimaa performed a bunionectomy on my right foot. The surgical result is excellent, and I had no post operative pain due to his well placed nerve blocks. Post operative care was first rate. His entire staff is professional, well-organized, kind and caring

Dr. Steinfeld is very competent and detail-oriented; although possibly not as communicative as might be desirable from a patient's viewpoint. Don't hesitate to ask questions and you will get answers that are very valuable regarding your health.
