I initially went to Dr. Proto after I was released by another ortho doc and was told I was fine to return to play, I did not feel right about the release as I was still in a lot of pain from the initial fracture. Dr Proto ordered tests and saw that my ankle was still fractured and missing cartilage. Dr. Proto was not the stereotypical surgeon. He was personable and very kind. He recommended, and executed a solid plan to fix my ankle, and thanks to him, I am now back to an active lifestyle.

I went for a second opinion and was very pleased at what he said after he talked to me, reviewed X rays, listened attentively and examined my feet. He did not rush me as the previous Podiatrist did.

Dr Proto is great as is the office staff. And, I do love the new online check in system. But TPMG billing is terrible. The bills never seem to be accurate.

Have seen Dr. Proto in both the Williamsburg and Newport News Office. Staff has been excellent at both offices. Dr. Proto listens, answers my questions and has resolved my foot issues. I am thankful.
