Dr Livingston came highly recommended by my dentist and his office manager. After being under his care, I can totally understand why. "Dr. Doug" is professional, explained my treatment options, listened and answered questions, explained my condition and the recommended treatment, as well as, non invasive options. He was willing to work with me as to what I opted to do. After each appointment, I feel confident that I am getting the best care for my condition.

Dr. Doug and his staff are exceptional. They are caring, reliable and deliver exemplary care. I have been going to the office since 2015 when I had my bunion removed by Dr. Doug. Dr. Doug and staff are wonderful and I now have a beautiful foot. Thank you Livingston Foot Care!!

I have bee seeing Dr. D. Livingston for a very long time and I am very satisfied. He did surgery to correct the bunions on both my feet and did and amazing job, since then I have recommended few of my friends, and every one of them are very satisfied with his work. I will continue to recommend him to anyone who needs an excellent Podiatrist. From 1 to 10 I will give him 10+

After having used another DPM for many years until he retired, I didn't think I would find anyone as competent. However, Dr. Doug Livingston is his equal and perhaps a bit better. I found him to be thorough, patient, experienced, and extremely knowledgeable. I have had issues with my feet my entire life and Dr. Doug made me the most comfortable orthotics I have ever worn. I am completely and totally pleased.

I have never written a review before but I think this office needs the recognition it deserves. I'll start with the staff...they are ALL the nicest and most accommodating. And last but certainly not least is Dr Doug Livingston. He is compassionate, has a sense of humor, and serious when necessary. He repaired my toe when my original surgeon couldn't. Therefore, I am grateful for the recommendation to this office.

Dr. Livingston is thorough in his examination and care. He explained my surgery to my husband and me in terms I could understand. He is kind, patient, funny and very caring. I would highly recommend him. Office staff is great and COVID precautions are top notch. I feel very comfortable going into the office.

Dr. Douglas Livingston was very personable, and even more importantly very knowledgeable. I had a problem with my foot and toes that surgery from another doctor did not fix, and left me with discomfort and pain in my foot. Dr. Livingston corrected this, and I am now able to walk and wear shoes comfortably. In addition, his entire staff are very professional, efficient and friendly. I highly recommend him.

I had a regular Podiatrist for over twenty years who was great. Unfortunately for medical reasons he no longer is able to practice. I tried several other recommendations. I was lucky enough to schedule a visit with Dr. Douglas Livingston. When treated by "Dr. Doug" I felt like I hadn't missed a beat. He listens (most important), evaluates and then explains in a way that I was able to understand (also importance). The staff are professional, cordial and efficient. It is not too often that I am able to say I look forward to doctor's visit. With the Livingston Foot Care Specialists, I can and I do. Thank you "Dr. Doug."
