What People Say About Dr. Harvey Danciger, DPM
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Excellent! Dr. Danciger and staff were extremely professional as well as kind and courteous. Dr. Danciger not only looked at my feet, but also felt them to check my pain-spots, had me walk in a hall, and gave me a protective pad while he was x-raying my feet. He then prescribed orthotics, and exercises, which he made sure I knew how to do. I felt I had had a very thorough and expert experience (and I've been under Doctors' care when we were living in 2 other cities.) I would highly recommend him to others.

Even though dr danciger wasn’t in my insurance group, I went to him based upon a friend’s recommendation. I’m so glad that I did!! Another doctor had put me in a walking boot due to a tear in my planters plant. I wasn’t getting better. However dr danciger said I did not need the boot and gave me temporary inserts to see if I would improve. YES!!! I AM SO THRILLED. I’m back to walking 5 miles a day even if I do walk very slowly. I tape my toe and do the exercises he recommends!!

Recently I took my 10 year old daughter to see Dr. Danciger because she was complaining of foot and ankle pain. Dr. Danciger gave her a thorough examination and explained to her exactly what he was doing. He showed her on a skeletal model what her joints were doing so she had a visual to understand what was going on with her feet. My daughter is now walking around pain free due to Dr. Danciger's caring treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Danciger.

I have found Dr. Danciger to be very professional in his approach to Podiatry. I came to see what could be done to help resolve my arthritic, great toe joint and, although fusion surgery is an option, he recommended delaying that for a more simple remedy of changing my shoe size and fitting me with orthotics, both of which have temporarily (more than 2 years) have postponed a more serious remedy or until new technology appears for correction.

Horrible experience at this unprofessional doctors visit. Have a fungus toe and was humiliated and yelled at for asking questions that he wouldn't answer and basically mocking me because it could be just cosmetic. You're a doctor, I need to be able to ask questions. Poor receptionists seemed like they see crying clients leave their office frequently.

Dr. Danciger is a true professional. His approach is conservative, but, if necessary, his surgical skills are proving to be very successful. And, his entire staff could not be more pleasant. Thank you all!

I would highly recommend Dr. Danciger. He takes a conservative approach and does rush to surgery. I am currently recovering from my second foot surgery in 2 years. My recovery from both surgeries has been uneventful. I appreciate that he is so meticulous and that he thoroughly explains everything. I wouldn't go to any other foot doctor or foot surgeon.

Dr. Danciger was very professional, he took care if the infection in my toes and removed my ingrown toenail. I was a new patient and they set me an appointment same day. I was in and out very quickly. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Danciger is great at explaining everything. He also approaches the problem you're having traditionally to ease pain and discomfort first before and major procedures are needed. He also works with my children and has helped tremendously. His front office staff is always so wonderful and cheerful. Love this place!

Dr Danciger does not listen to the needs and pain of his patients. His arrogance and temper get in the way of his judgment. Did my bunion surgery, and made several serious procedures. Would not listen to my concerns. Last visit with him, he yelled at me (this was not the first time he had made me cry). My mistake is going back and trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. Do NOT recommend him! His staff is super friendly, courteous and prompt!
