I have had ankle pain for years. Dr. Putnam helped me through it and now I am able to do all the active sports I have been avoiding.

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.
