What People Say About Dr. Nicholas Desantis, DPM
Reply
Got a referral for some recent heel pain and had three choices, unfortunately I chose the most convenient based on location before checking reviews. This guy is a total quack, avoid at all costs. Rx: shoe orthotics and wrap followed by a cortisone shot. Neither helped. He did not review provided images, but "read the summary" The question that really put me off: "You're how old? You should be happy it's only one foot" I kid you not. Avoid this "doctor" and check out his yelp reviews.

I just came from Dr. De Santis office. He is in a beautiful old house office across the street from beautiful Balboa Park I agree with the previous commenters in that the help is loving and caring. I do not agree with the commenters that did not rate the doctor as hi stars as his help. He was like last year very quick, efficient and personable. He is a Surgeon. My wife is a surgeon. In an emergency they can not be emotional or you will die. His office is incredible beautiful and you will love
