From My initial meeting with Dr. Kazmer I felt at complete ease that he would be able to help me with resolving my Issues. Having my Surgery on December 26th of 2018 compared to today is a world of difference. The pain i felt before surgery and aesthetically was something of a chore to deal with Physically and Mentally. I can attest to two months later a world of Difference, my foot is pretty!! and the pain is gone. I do have some healing to go through but that is what is to be expected.

I have CMT, and went to Dr. Kazmer for orthotics. Dr. Kazmer set me up with custom orthotics and also an ankle brace. The experience was excellent. Dr. Kazmer knew exactly what I needed, was well-versed and experienced with CMT patients, and has a positive and pleasant personality.

Looking for a foot dr? Look no more. I have an HMO plan and pay $50 to see pcp and $70 to see specialist. I have been to 5 specialists, the last one gave me a round bandage to put on my toe and told me I could get them at the local pharmacy. Again I left in tears. So now I am referred to Dr. Kazmer with great trepidation. This Dr cost me $120. All I can say is he was a miracle. He did surgery on my foot and now I can wear the 30 pairs of shoes I bought. He was kind and explained everything.

I saw Dr. Kazmer after I was misdiagnosed and was given the wrong treatment plan by another Doctor.. Thankfully Dr. Kazmer was able to treat me correctly and I was able to avoid surgery. I would highly recommended him. He is an excellent and highly skilled doctor and he has a wonderful and caring staff..

I love dr kazmer! He's booted me, he's performed foot surgery on me and he's done basic things too like fit me for orthotics and shave a callous.:.always kind, always straight forward and always a positive experience - my kids like dr kazmer too. I've seen him for over 15 years for my feet-ly needs. I would recommend dr kazmer to family and friends.

I sincerely appreciate Dr. Kazmer. He is knowledgeable and truly an expert podiatrist. He has diagnosed and properly treated a number of my injuries. I can always get an appointment when needed at either location. I also appreciate the in-office technology. As a busy professional it saves me time. Come visit him - you won't be disappointed.

Dr. Kazmer is a lifesaver! I had a problem with a bunion, and he discussed the options and potential side effects. He expertly fixed it - you can barely tell I had surgery! I have full range of motion, and am back in my favorite shoes! He has a fantastic way of making you feel comfortable with what needs to be done, and talks to you like a person, in layman's terms - very personable and professional. I would recommend him to everyone!

I had two separate surgeries done by Dr. Kazmer. Both experiences were exceptional. He is a very skilled surgeon. I had absolutely no complications including no major pain during the healing process. Which means I did not have to take any of the prescribed pain medication. I have recommended him to every friend I have in need of foot surgery.

My daughter and I have both seen Dr. Kazmer for ankle injuries several times over the past two years. We trust his ability to diagnose the issue and prescribe us the proper care to ensure quick and safe recoveries. It was refreshing to receive a follow up call from him within a few days to see how we were doing. The facility is really nice and his staff is great.
