I would strongly recommend Dr Wardle, Podiatrist to patients who needs foot surgeries. Dr is a well experienced in his trade. He explains the procedure before and after, made me calmed, relaxed & less stressed. My anxiety & fear greatly overwhelms me but on the moment of injecting the anesthesia to my great toe nail removal/avulsion, i feel numb, then he said" I'm done" just like that, very quick. Honestly, tooth extraction is painful than my great toe nail total removal.

Dr. Wardle is a highly skilled surgeon and an outstanding patient advocate! He is outstanding at explaining the cause of the medical problem and the various treatment options, and partners with the patient to assess the pros and cons of each. He also listens well and makes sure that all questions are answered. His friendly, yet efficient, manner means you rarely wait more than a few minutes for your scheduled appointment. Dr. Wardle's treatment and ultimate surgery for my 93 year old mother's neuroma has been 100% successful. Equally important, his confidence inspiring and kind manner made the whole experience less stressful for her. If I or anyone I know needs a podiatry specialist, I will definitely encourage them to see Dr. Wardle!

Dr. Wardle and team was excellent in advising me on the best care. He suggested that I avoid surgery and simply wait out a broken 5th med using a boot and crutches. I'm all mended and no surgery! Great bedside manner to boot!

Dr Wardle is a great surgeon, his repair of my arch ankle and heal couldn't have gone better. I had almost given up after 14 years of this injury. He prepared and encouraged me during the long recovery. His staff is top notch! Very pleasant and attentive. I have already referred people to him. I am confident that I will be able to Hike soon. I am 4 months out now.

Dr Wardle is great! He's a skilled surgeon, who has worked on multiple family members of mine. He is the only person I would trust to cut open my ankle last month, 4 weeks post op ligament surgery and I'm already walking!! Best part is he's not an old fuddy fuddy doc :)
