What People Say About Dr. Alan Discont, DPM

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!!
