Dr. Discont is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and just a great doctor overall! I've been going to him for several years and he performed out patient surgery this morning on a "misbehaving" toe that has been causing issues. I was very nervous, but his calm manner put me at ease, and this experience has been so much easier than I feared. His staff and assistants are delightful, and I highly recommend Dr. Discont for all of your foot and ankle needs!

Here is the short review - I love this guy, his office and his work. And I send everybody I can to see him! OK, the long version. After may years of discomfort (horse, polo, rodeo)I asked my family doctor who they recommended for foot stuff and they said Dr. Alan Discont. From the reception desk to the exam room was a great experience. They made me feel as if they really cared if I came in at all. Dr. Discont came in and brought an assistant with a computer. He focused on me and not on taking notes, and he was in no hurry. What a new experience. After some looking around, a bunch of questions and some x rays and some additional conversation I told him I thought the joint replacement option was the best and he agreed. Note - there was no joint left, just bone rubbing on bone. I had no pain after the surgery, and after a few weeks of staying off that foot as much as possible I am back in action. Got foot pain? Go see this guy and tell him Bill the polo player said hello.
