Dr. Smiley overexaggerated my simple, almost healed tendonitis. I felt that Dr. Smiley was treating me as a cash cow and tried to set me up for a months of misery and thousands of dollars in expense to benefit her: she sold me something that I didn’t need for $200; refused an anti-inflammatory medicine that is used as a standard care for tendonitis; refused to take back a defective Boot for a refund. I went to another doctor and was pain free in a week with a simple anti-inflammatory prescription. What kind of Doctor is she, if she cannot even take care of a simple tendonitis in an efficient and commonly acceptable way?

I was unable to get appointment with the primary care to care for my ingrown toenail. I called Carolina Foot Centers the reception gave me appointment for the next day to see Dr. Ismaili, I was amaze for the care and concern that was shown from the receptionist, the nurses and Dr. Ismaili. The VA is free, I am on a fix income I will pay my copay until I am heal with Dr. Ismaili. I prayed to God for a blessing on this center.

Dr. Ismaili is ALWAYS outstanding - I have a son who plays soccer at an elite level, so you can imagine the need for a reliable and engaged pediatrist who covers all the bases, listens well and is great with kids. Trust her completely.

Dr.Ismaili is very compassionate, understanding and easy to talk with. I have issues with nail fungus and a type of athlete’s foot that affect the bottom and sides of my feet. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an all-around great family podiatrist. She took care of my 94 year old mother. She is now deceased, but when I took her along with me for an appointment with Dr. Ismaili ,my mom was amazed at how Dr. Ismaili made her feet feel... like new. I have to agree with my mom. I realize, now, that my feet don’t have to feel bad or look bad. Her staff is an asset to the practice, always helpful and understanding. If you are looking for an upgrade to your feet by a caring podiatrist, look no more. My wife and I have been going to her for about 6 years. I think Dr. Ismaili is an asset to the community.

Dr.Ismaili is very compassionate, understanding and most of all very gentle. I have a very complex foot/ankle issues. She recommend doing the less invasive procedures first instead of just hopping right to surgery. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone, who is experiencing any foot or ankle problems. Her staff is also very kind, considerate and helpful.
