This is my second foot surgery with Dr. Badwey and so far so good. Very pleased with first one so expect this one to do just fine also. Great experience!

Dr. Wingerter does a great job of taking the time to listen and fully explain the nature of the damage and the alternatives. He has the ability to take complex situations and explain them in easy-to-understand terms that a layperson can understand.

I’ve known others who have gone to Sabates Eye Center in Overland Park and the wait use to be ridiculous. Easily 2 or more hours. Now however, the wait is reasonable 5-10 min. Great friendly, caring, knowledgable staff. Dr Pikey is no nonsense, get you in and out.
