Went to Dr.Pelto’s during the Covid-19 pandemic. Was very impressed at the care given to keep everyone safe! Dr. Pelto was very caring and reassuring. Took steps to manage my foot care for being diabetic. Genuinely cared about concerns about pain control.

Dr. Pelto's gentle manner, and his deep concern for his client is apparent and appreciated. He does not want to see a patient in pain, and he is clear and confident in the number of ways that an ailment can be taken care. He explains everything well, you never feel rushed. He never makes you feel that anything you ask or wonder about is silly. If it concerns the patient it concerns him. I think he is wonderful. He brought to my attention in the most gentle way, a subject he was not sure I was open to. The manner in which he brought it forth has stayed with me, and I have shared this with many friends and family. I am totally impressed by the man. His is gifted in many ways when it comes to communication and the concern and care for others.

Dr. Pelto was very welcoming. He got to know me and then explained everything to me in a way I could understand, including going over some images to make it easier to see. He was kind and I didn't feel rushed or like my questions were stupid. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing podiatry.

Very patient with my teenager who had an infected ingrown toenail. Explained everything to her, no rush at all even though we were squeezed in for emergency appointment. Very happy with this doctor.

I met with Dr. Pelto today and welcomed with a handshake. He also asked how I had been feeling. He took care of my toe nails and spoke about results on my pressure in my legs and feet. Because I am diabetic, he suggested a book that suggests a change in diet may help to lose some weight. I am excited to try a change.

A very friendly staff, Dr. Pelto is a fantastic and a very knowledgeable podiatrist. He is so polite, and shows a genuine concern for my health and my husband too. I wish my husband and I met him years ago, a lot of suffering would have been alleviated. We are so happy we are able to be patients here. If you’re able to be seen in this office, you will be truly blessed.

I saw Dr. Pelto for foot and heel symptoms consistent with plantar fasciitis. He explained the diagnosis and provided a thorough treatment plan. The educational materials he shared were very helpful. Additionally, I found Dr. Pelto and his staff to be extremely personable and I enjoyed our conversations.
