Was glad that there was an x-ray machine in the office Dr. LaRussa was quickly able to get the pictures and show me where my problem was. He was very friendly and very thorough. I would gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a "good foot doctor"!!

The doctor was good. My grievances are against his office staff. Who overcharged me and wasn’t concerned even after I complained vigorously. I contacted my insurance company and they determined that they did overcharge me, which the doctors office said they would reimburse me when the paperwork came in and that “it was no big deal “. You tried to rip me off and got caught. How many other people have you did this to and haven’t been caught.
