Dr. Attinger is not only extremely capable, but is a caring and compassionate person. He was patient, kind, honest and gentle. My case was difficult, but he never gave in, and kept me encouraged as well. After two years of unsuccessful treatments in my home state of North Carolina, he took me on, and went beyond treating the symptoms to find the underlying problem and take care of it. It was well worth the travel distance and I will be forever grateful.

Years ago I had a terrible surgery from another doctor that became infected as osteomyelitis. Dr. Attinger saved my foot and healed me. He was able to clear up the infection and salvage most of my bones in my foot and I have a completely normal life today. I was only 17 years old, and he took the time to explain everything he was doing and made me feel very safe and calm. I am very thankful that I found Dr. Attinger.
