Dr Diresta and his staff go above and beyond to accommodate. I knew I had hurt my foot and called the office. Though they were fully scheduled, after checking with the Dr, they did fit me in at the end of the day. In office they X-rayed my foot & Dr Diresta diagnosed a broken toe. He wrapped it, gave me more stretch gauze tape for home and told me how to care for it.... mentioning a boot, but suggesting hard-soled shoes until it heals. Later I realized I DID need a medical boot. It was painful going up and down my 3 level condo stairs. So again I called. Generally they don’t see patients on Fridays, but again they accommodated, asking what time was good for me. In the office they fit me with a VERY comfortable boot, that they had already cleared with my insurance. All in all, I was very impressed with EVERYONE I encountered from the office, whether on the phone or in person. All were very congenial and efficient. I, without a doubt, would highly recommend this podiatry office.
