Family Foot and Ankle has a terrific staff
I have been a patient of Family Foot and Ankle for 8 years. In that time I have been treated for arthritis, bursitis and a severe injury to my ankle and heel as a result of a fall from a ladder. I have seen Dr. Discont, and several other doctors on his staff and have been extremely impressed by each one of them. Dr. Gregg Krahn, DPM, is the latest to see me for my ankle and heel. There has been absolutely no problem transitioning from one doctor to another if necessary. Dr. Krahn has answered all of my questions, provided excellent care and treatment. The orthopedic shoe inserts and specific shoe types to wear., as well as how to progressively improve my mobility, without causing more damage has been spot on. After over a year of treatment, we have overcome the possibility of not being able to actually heal the fractures, especially the heel damage. I now walk normally, without any limp, hesitation or pain, and do not need a cane or walker. Dr. Krahn has been wonderful. Thank you.

Left after 45 minutes in the lobby
Didn't get to see the doctor. Was in the waiting room 45 minutes before I left. The others out there with me had also been waiting too long as well. Add to the experience of listening to a patient place a 30-minute phone call during her wait, and I decided 45 minutes was enough.
