Dr. Saffer was referred by my primary care doctor for a heel spur. He and his staff are so caring. He gave me cortisone injections in my heel. I hate shots, but he went to great lengths to make sure I did not feel the injection. The first heel spur he treated is still gone two years later. I highly recommend Carolina Foot & Ankle Specialists.

Dr. Saffer is the best, second only to his amazing staff. Ashley helped schedule my appt and was super kind and happy. It made me smile to talk with her. I was running a bit late and the staff was understanding, told me to drive safe and not to worry. I was placed in a clean, comfortable exam room as soon as I arrived. Dr. Saffer shortly came in and was wonderful and caring. He engaged in my chit-chat as I tried to distract myself from the procedure. I ended up needing an additional procedure, and Dr. Saffer worked me in right there to accommodate for the fact I had child care covered rest of the day. The MAs were fantastic. My procedural MA talked me through the procedure prep steps, the procedure, aftercare, and answered questions. Dr. Saffer showed care and concern as he injected the lidocaine to numb my feet. He used cold spray to increase my comfort and was through in ensuring my toes were properly numb. The procedure was quick and he frequently checked into to ensure I was tolera

Dr. Saffer and staff continue to provide professional, top-quality podiatry care. I have been a patient since 2011 when I suffered with a life-threatening foot infection. Due to Dr. Saffer's due diligence and prompt treatment, followed by a recommendation for immediate surgery, my foot and life were saved. I have and will continue to see Dr. Saffer for preventative podiatry care. My visit today was promptly accomplished with he utmost care. Thank you to Dr. Saffer and each staff member. I encourage all who need podiatry care to visit this practice.
