Very sad and disappointed with the service from the auxiliary staff. I called and called for weeks on end checking back to see when they could schedule me for a surgery that I desperately need. I checked back so often that I could sense their annoyance. I soldiered on anyway because I am in lot of pain and am desperate to get it over with. I dropped my phone a couple days ago and had to buy a new one. The one day my phone was out of service, I missed the nurse's call and she gave away my slot f

Dr Washburn performed joint fusion on my big toe around 3 months ago. I was in chronic pain and had been seeing another Dr who told me there was nothing she could do for me. I have a while to go to complete healing but am so thankful I found him!! I simply don't believe you can find a better Dr!!

Dr. Washburn and his staff are very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Since taking over the office, it has been remodeled and is very clean, Dr. Washburn is kind, patience, and considerate of his patient. He goes the extra mile to make sure he has done everything to help with pain and throughly explains the options available. He puts no pressure on you for a quick decision. He loves his family, job, and patients. I h e nothing but good things to say about this man. He is the best!

Dr. Washburn and Staff has provided me with the best, most successful Podiatric care that anyone could expect. After numerous trips to two different wound care clinics with various different clinicians with limited results and expensive procedures, I sought professional foot care from a single source clinic and found Washburn Foot and Ankle Center. I highly recommend Dr. Washburn and his staff for all foot care medical needs from basic maintenance to surgery.

I did research on Dr Washburn regarding his education and surgical background before I made my first appointment. He has excellent credentials, has a great personality,and very attentive to you. He is an excellent surgeon, and I am making a quick recovery from surgery on four hammertoes. I highly recommend Dr Washburn to anyone with a foot problem. The staff is very friendly and helpful also.

Made appointment three weeks earlier, arrived 15 minutes prior to appointment, waited 15 minutes to be acknowledged, waited another 15 minutes to be checked in (after being informed I had no appointment), then waited 1 hour & 15 minutes without a nurse telling me Dr was running behind schedule or anything. Once I decided to calmly leave & find a Dr that cared about his patients, I was finally told I was next. I said no thank you. I never received any apology. I do NOT recommend.

Dr. Washburn is very personable, knowledgeable, patient, understanding, funny. I was kinda skeptical about going to a new doctor but when I say as soon as his nurse walked in the room my reservations were quickly put to rest. Then my experience with Dr. Washburn but the icing on the cake. He knew right off what my issue was he immediately gave me an action plan and told me to call when I'm ready. I was in total awl bc I've been doctoring on myself for 5 plus years. LOVED my visit!!!!!!!!!!

He found out what was wrong with my foot after others said there was nothing wrong. Had surgery that went very well and now working out again. He fixed me right up.
