Dr. D Livingston gives excellent care. He takes the time to listen. He makes me feel valued & respected. He treats me as he would want to be treated. He has a special gift as a surgeon & a person. The personal attention & kindness shown by Dr. D. Livingston & his staff helped me overcome my fears about surgery. The counseling I received prior to surgery & the care after about what to expect after was crucial in my recovery. I thank him for his kindness, sincere care & exceptional professional abilities.

Dr Douglas Livingston did not meet my minimum expectations for proper foot care. He was also borderline rude during the examination.

He may be a nice person, but do not let this man sell you on unnecessary foot surgery.

Rude and unprofessional. He lacks responsibility for his practice. I would not recommend due to practice policy and staff that handles the office.

I was not impressed by the level of care I received from Dr Livingston. I have since changed to a different podiatrist for my foot care.

Dr. Doug performed 3 foot surgeries on me over the last year, and I would not want any other doctor to do so. He's knowledgeable, understanding, great bedside manner, and very thorough. Great staff too. They run a tight ship.

I am very pleased with my experience at Livingston Foot Care. It’s important to be treated with professionalism and care which I always have with Dr. Doug and his staff. I had a bunion with horrible hammertoes and had surgery almost 2 years ago. It was a huge success. This year he’ll do the same surgery on my right foot and I can’t wait. I am truly grateful for his expertise and highly recommend him and the entire practice.

I had painful, protruding bunions on both of my feet. Dr. Doug tried different non-invasive treatments before suggesting surgery. I decided to have bunionectomy surgeries on both feet. They were one month apart and went extremely well. Dr. Doug was patient, understanding and reassuring when I expressed fears/concerns before my first surgery. I was more relaxed for the second one. Following the surgeries, I went for two types of therapies in the office. Everyone I dealt with was great.

I am by far surprised of the negative reviews written of Dr Doug . ( I wonder if They’re getting paid ) I’ve been with Dr Doug for many years & I can only say He’s the best! I’ve recommended him to my family & friends & they’ve all been very happy! His office staff... they are great, you’re treated with respect & very caring yo your needs. Tku Dr Doug, May God bless you, your family & your staff!!! You’re the best! I, Velásquez & Family will always be grateful for your service.

I am a known member of the community therefore cannot list my name. Dr L messed up my foot so I can no longer run or barely walk. Then I hear about his other mess-ups that nobody knows about. His staff are no better and cover up for him. Don’t be fooled by his advertising. There’s much more but this is one place you want to avoid.

I was mistreated and lied to by him. Why would GPs refer to him? It makes no sense.

Did not have a good experience. Brought my mom here and the wait times were too long. We spent very little actual time with the doctor and I don't feel she received treatment.
