dr attinger just recently amputated my left foot below knee.this man is a serious beast he explained everything to me in a thorough concise way as to why this needed to be done that they weren't doing this because they didn't have anything else better to do.it totally calmed me down when my heartbeat was ready to blow right through my chest the fateful day i was in the O.R now being a former marine i knew i had to cowboy up.so i salute you DR ATTINGER.you created one beautiful stump.thank you.

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.
