I was referred to Dr. Discont because I had a toe that hurt and was getting worse. Dr. Discont looked a the X rays and it was clear there was no longer any joint in that toe . After going over all the options I chose getting a replacement joint in that toe. I never had any pain from the surgery and I had to spend more time that I liked on the couch but I was never immobilized. This is a very busy office but you will feel welcomed and I never felt rushed. Now after several months I am pain free and fully functional on that foot. I can fully recommend Dr. Discont and the practice.

I've been a patient of Dr. Krahn on and off for approximately 3 years for various foot issues. He is always knowledgeable, thorough in explaining the issue and the solution, and his staff is wonderful. I recently had surgery to remove a Taylor's bunion. Dr. Krahn did a great job and kept me informed of what to expect during the procedure as well as the aftercare.

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.

I was a new patient, and was able to get an appointment the next day! The front desk staff was friendly, checked me in promptly, and took the time to explain my complicated insurance coverage for the visit. I was taken to the room, and the doctor came in only moments later. Dr. Krahn listened to my symptoms, discussed the options, and treated me right then and there! They had the correct DME on hand, so I didn’t have to search all over town for the right equipment/brace. Everything went so smoothly, and everyone was very friendly! I highly recommend!

I have been seeing Dr. Discont for about 2 years now and what can I say, if there was a foot GOD, this man would be Zeus!! I had terrible trouble with my plantar fasciitis and after a few shots in the heels, all pain was gone, and it has stayed gone for almost 2 years now. He is funny and has awesome bedside manner. He is the best in my book!!
