Patient Comments (5)

Very thorough and gave me lots of options. Didn’t jump right to surgery. Ultimately did have Tenjet procedure for my chronic plantar fasciitis. Totally resolved now!

Very patient with my husband and I. I asked a lot of questions ( probably too many) and he helped me understand my condition. Very pleased with my visits with him over the past year.

Spent a lot of money for 2 minutes without a diagnosis or solution to my problem. Waited long enough in room to hear thru the door all about very loud staff's personal life.
