Very patient and thorough in answering questions. Was not pushy about suggesting expensive options. It was clear to me that he strives to make sure that his patients are aware of all options.

Saw Dr Retief recently, he suggested I buy insoles from Academy which wasn't expensive but he also told me I had an HIGH instep which was causing my pain, after a few months of nothing changing I found a specialist locally who also ex-rayed my foot and diogonised my problem and stated that I have a perfectly normal instep and did not need insoles

My husband and I were encouraged to make an appointment with Dr. Retief by our daughter. She insisted we would love Dr. Retief and we surely did. It was a wonderful experience to be educated about our issues as well as treated with care and compassion. His assistant, Crystal, was wonderful too. Also, Christie at the front desk is welcoming and helpful along with Tina who handles insurance. Everyone was so nice and genuine.

Dr. Retief was very thorough with his explanations. I really felt like he cared and wanted me to understand the problems. I felt like a patient and not a customer. Highly recommended.

I have been seeing Dr. Retief for a few years now I began seeing him after my previous podiatrist left the practice. I have not been any more satisfied with any doctor than I have with Dr. Retief. He has a very friendly staff generally you can get an appointment the same day or the next day after you call and the work they do is efficient sufficient and everything you need. I highly recommend this doctor for all of your Podiatry needs.

Dr. Reteif and his staff were wonderful to deal with. I wish all doctor offices gave the same experience! The wait time was short and their team very friendly. They were to the point but not rushed. They gave quick pricing which is rare. Late appointments available and within a quick timeframe. The doctor did the procedure in office the same day. Very knowlegable and easy to talk to. Highly recommend!!

Awesome human being. Had just changed jobs and didn't have my insurance yet. He did the surgery anyway and he is doing the follow up even though I can't start paying until I get released to go back to work. God bless this man

He was very friendly and professional. He was very concerned about helping me with my supination problem. I had custom inserts made and they have helped my feet. I do recommend him for your foot problems.
