Dr. Jaakkola and his staff were prompt and so very helpful. They made sure not to let me leave with any questions unanswered, and, so importantly, corrected a mis-reading of my xrays from another institution. So very glad to be in the care of Optim and its staff. Many thanks.

Everyone from front check in, registration, medical assistants and physician were knowledgeable and went above and beyond to care for me during my visit. My problem and treatment plan was explained to me by Dr Jaakkola, I was carefully shown exercises and was provided with the orthotics and splint I needed before leaving. The. Xray technician was also wonderful, she was careful to make sure I was safe before during and after xrays since I had to go on a raised platform for the correct images. H

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Jaakkola and his staff during my first visit. They treated me like a human being with respect, kindness and caring. Not only were they knowledgeable and efficient, but they made me feel comfortable and put me at ease with humor. I was actually laughing while discussing my upcoming surgery.

I had to wait almost an hour after my appointment to see Dr. Jaakkola. He apologized for the long wait, which I appreciated because not many doctors will do that. Even though he was clearly behind schedule, I didn’t feel rushed. He took the time to explain all my options and told me what the best way to alleviate my foot pain was if I chose not to have surgery. He gave me the pros and cons of all my options. I would definitely recommend Dr. Jaakkola.

He took the time to to make sure he covered all avenues and was great at explaining what my injury is. He gave alternatives instead of suggesting surgery up front. Great bedside manner.

I was referred to Dr Jaakkola for a torn tendon and s collapsed arch. I found him to be kind and very knowledgeable. Dr. Yaakkola explained my problem and what he could do to repair it. Each step has been on target and the entire staff has been caring and helpful. Recovery is long but the results are worth it. I would highly recommend Dr. Yaakkola.
