The Best Podiastrist
Dr. Walimire and his hard working, friendly staff are the BEST! I have been running for over 40 years which includes marathons, half marathons, 5Ks, etc. Dr. Walimire performed an arthroplasty on me and release of my 4 hammertoes. I was walking again after 3 months and actually ran a 5K road race after 4 months. I am so glad I was referred to Dr. Walimire.

ALERT! Best to request prices from Dr Waldimere prior to treatment! First of all, they wanted to take xrays...for an ingrown toenail! I refused, and tried to leave. They talked me into staying, and then I was charged $872 for a half hour visit! My portion is $400. Never again!

Medicare was billed $375 for them taking my blood pressure and feeling my foot. This is why healthcare is so ridiculously expensive today!

Dr. Walimire is extremely personable and very knowledgeable. He discussed non surgical options first and we went the conservative route. I ended up having surgery and it was the BEST decision I’ve ever made! I have my mobility and life back. I will always entrust Dr. Walimire for any future podiatry issues.

I suffer from mid-foot arthritis and never realized the extent of the damages until I finally decided to make the appointment with Dr. Walimire. After taking the time to educate me on treatments, we decided to go through with a mid-foot arthrodesis (fusion). The recovery period was very long and at times painful (immobility, even more immobility, walking with boot, to eventually being able to walk freely on my own). After the 3 mo recovery period, it was the best decision I had ever made. Being pain free and able to enjoy my career again has been worth all the immobility. Dr Walimire is kind, courteous, and professional surgeon I will entrust to my future needs.

Went to 3 other Dr's with a sore toe and Dr. Walimire was the only one to diagnose it as a broken toe. Thanks for fixing it.

I had my ORIF ankle surgery with Dr. Walimire. He's simply amazing, clearly conveying everything about my surgical procedure as well as the necessary post op after-care protocol. His staff is polite and efficient. A true professional who knows his stuff.

My experience with Dr. Walimier and his staff was excellent in every way. I was experiencing a good deal of toe pain. He quickly diagnosed the cause and performed a tenotomy on two toes. Since walking out of the office I have been pain free.
