Patient Comments (1)
in Orlando, FL |
My daughter was born with a very severe club foot. The first doctor we saw told us she would never walk normally and would need corrective shoes/braces etc. the rest of her life. We went for a second opinion with Dr. Alburger. That was 21 years ago. I am happy to say my daughter not only walks perfectly, but went to college on a soccer scholarship. All thanks to Dr. Alburger. Even when we moved over 1,000 miles away, I still flew her up to see Dr. Alburger. He is truly a hero!
