Dr. Chura performed surgery on my foot for a torn ligament. Her diagnosis was spot on and she explained the complete surgical procedure and the recuperation time so that there were no surprises. She spent quite a bit of time with me and answered all of the questions that I had. I would highly recommend Dr. Chura for any necessary foot or ankle surgery.

Dr. Chura is my “go-to” when I have foot issues. She takes the time to listen to my issues and is very thorough when explaining prognosis and treatment plans/options. I have had two surgeries on my foot. I am on my feet 10 or more hours a day and Dr. Chura successfully corrected my issues. I am back on my feet and back to work, pain free.

Dr. Chura is very kind, knowledgeable and really takes the time to answer any and all questions. I had a small in office procedure and she explained each step and made me feel at ease throughout the appointment. I have recommended her care to both family and friends and they have all had the same experience as me. I highly recommend Dr. Chura for any foot or ankle issues

Dr. Chura is a pleasant person but was dissatisfied by her shoulder shrugging disinterest in my painful condition preventing me from exercising. I'm diabetic which should be important to a DPM but apparently not her. I had to take the initiative & suggest possible courses of action. Finally settled on MY suggestion of an MRI so a diagnosis could at least be reached. No pain treatment offered. I had to call the office to see if she had the MRI results. I would hesitate to recommend, very passive

I tore my Achilles and was fortunate enough to become a patient of Dr. Chura. Dr. Chura, her nurse and her staff were absolutely incredible to me and made what should have been a difficult situation that much easier to manage. She and her staff kept me confident and upbeat. I'd would happily refer anyone to Dr. Chura for any orthopedic issues.
