Did I ever pick the right Dr! After seeing a Dr, podiatrist in the 80’s I ended up being worse off from that visit. Dr Phisitkul knew exactly what to do to fix the mess I was left with. He’s a wonderful caring Dr. Highly recommend Dr Phisitkul.

Dr. Phisitkul performed a minimally invasive procedure on me that has corrected my foot and Achilles tendon problems, eliminated my constant foot pain, and actually eliminated my need for an AFO brace. He accepted my wish to be awake during the surgery and considered my other physical infirmities in prescribing my recovery limitations. My husband commented, after attending my consultation appointment, that Dr. Phisitkul listens remarkably well and carefully considers every one of my questions and concerns. On return visits, Dr. showed consistent compassion and concern for my surgery results and for me, in general.
