I was referred to this place from my primary care doctor who sent a referral with all of my information. I get a call from the office and the receptionist seemed a little unprofessional but I didn't pay it any mind. I thought maybe there was just a cultural difference since there was a bit of a language barrier. While making my appointment the receptionist asked when would I like to come in. Of course I told her as soon as possible. She then asked about my insurance and I told her I had two cigna and blue cross blue shield. Mind you she received a referral from my primary care physician with all of this information. She then asked if I had blue home ( I guess this is Medicaid) I let her know both are private PPO and the secondary picks up the copays for the primary. She said okay.

I was very pleased with the Doctor's examination and questions asked relating to my concerns regarding my R foot discomfort. Her full explanation along with showing a foot model allowed me to be more aware of the reason for my pain. I also received several recommendations for treatment and will return for follow up visit.

Dr. Lehtinen was very interested in knowing about my health and how it may be interacting with my foot health. She impressed me as someone who is interested in getting to the root cause of a problem. She is personable and easy to talk to. She recommended and had available a solution, to one of my issues, that allowed me to go on a 2 day hike the following week. My other issue required a several week medication which appears to be working. I highly recommend Dr. Lehtinen for her knowledge and proactive demeanor.
