Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Great experience and fast help to relieve foot pain with medical explanations and time for my questions. Excellent care for any age patient. Dr. DiFranco also takes care of my 85 year old mother. Will continue on as a patient(s) and also appreciate his friendly and helpful staff.

I highly recommend Dr DiFranco and his team of caregivers. In very little time, Dr DiFranco helped heal damage done to my feet by a different foot specialist. Dr DiFranco treated me with respect, kindness, and highly knowledgeable professional care. He knows state-of-the-art orthotics, medicines, and procedures. He takes an interest in providing good care and is a very proud family man - husband and father. The office is very clean and everyone is very efficient and respectful.
