      Both my son and I have gone to Dr. Laco for various podiatry related problems. Both he and his staff provide a welcoming environment and great care. Having moved to Minnesota from New Jersey, we didn't know if we would be able to find a podiatrist who could replace the one we had in New Jersey who provided such great care to us. Little did we realize that great care was not far. Dr. Laco quickly took care of my son's ingrown toe nail problem in one procedure after two visits. I see him for ongoing chronic problems, but the treatment has ensured the problems are sable and/or improving. He's kind and generous with his time and his practice. If you need care, look no further. I would gladly recommend anyone to see him for their feet related problems. He is phenomenal!

      I went in with severe toe pain. Dr Laco was very informative and took extra time to answer all my questions. His treatment subsided the pain and he made suggestions to minimize a re-occurrence. I would highly recommend Dr. Laco for any foot ailments. He exceeded my expections.

      Ha! "I always ask the patient if there are any questions". What a joke! I have NEVER had a physician care less about me as a patient or a person. He barely spoke to me, was condescending, short and rude. I did not ask follow up questions because I knew I'd get a rude, dismissive answer. His first treatment plan was the MOST invasive option, and he was condescending when I asked if we could start with a less intense option. He actually spoke so meanly to me that I cried. Not going back.

      Dr. Laco has cared for my feet for so many years. He is very thorough and listens to me. He saved my foot during a terrible infection. He has been an amazing and caring doctor, even calling me to check on me during times of greater infection. He truly cares and I would recommend him to anyone, especially those going through what I have been through with a diabetic history. His staff is great and they have even opened early to make sure I am seen.

      I saw Dr. Laco for recurring issues with bunions on both of my feet. I decided to have bunion surgery on both of my feet in November of 2017. I couldn't BE HAPPIER with my decision! What I really respect and appreciate about Dr. Laco is that he is wonderful at managing expectations! He made sure I was fully aware of the recovery process, and I saw him weekly after my surgery. He even personally called me twice after my surgery to check-in/see how I was doing.

      My experience with Dr. Laco and his staff were absolutely amazing. The appointments were easy to make and they never kept me waiting. The gals up front were also very helpful with my FMLA and insurance benefits. Everything went extremely smooth. I found Dr. Laco to be on point with my diagnoses, treatment plan and follow up. He personally made calls to me to ensure I was healing properly after my surgery and addressed all of my concerns. I strongly recommend him and his staff.
