Dr extent may be knowledge and well accomplished, how ever her attitude towards patients is not the best, say one wrong thing and she acts condescending towards you the rest of the visit.

Dr Exten in my opinion was very knowledgeable and seems to care about her patients but when I called to schedule an appointment for injections at her suggestion I never received a call back... I guess this would fall on the nurse and not Dr. Exten but still.

I had a cyst on one of my toes and Dr.. Exten determined I needed to have it surgically removed. She is very personable and really understands the needs of each patient. I chose to stay awake during the surgery so I was able to hear how well she interacts with all the staff in the operating room. The surgery was successful and she did such a great job, the cyst has not returned. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs her services.

Dr. Exten performed my total ankle replacement 2 years ago, and this was the finest medical experience & outcome I have had in my lifetime. Her professionalism throughout my evaluation, prep and surgery has been second to none. SInce I am finally able to move, walk distances and regulate my weight correctly, I am in my best health of the past 20 yrs. She took the time to diagnose correctly, and emphasized a pre-op regimen of strengthening core and dropping some weight to ensure the best outcome.
