Disdainful and condescending; slow to respond to request for more information

Review for Dr. Rehman

Very professional staff. And Dr. Spinola took the time to discuss my foot issues with me. I now have custom insoles for my shoes which is great when you spend 12 + hours a day on them. No more foot pain. I referred my husband, and my niece to him. Friends at work.
