Scott McGarvey, MD is one of the best foot Surgeons Nation wide. If a patient follows his instructions they will have a wonderful outcome. I had Bilateral Bunion surgery and I wish I could enclose a picture of my feet. They are beautiful. If there are any complaints the patient needs to ask themselves if they really has followed the instructions give to them. Dr. McGarvey tells you and also gives out a written copy of what you must do to aid your recovery. Thank you Dr. McGarvey!

I have chronic RA and needed foot reconstruction of both feet. I had been to 2 other ortho foot specialists and just didn't feel comfortable with their approach. Dr McGarvey explained how complicated my foot surgery was going to be and set proper expectations for my future. The surgery was one of the most complicated surgeries he has done due to my soft bone and poor marrow, but is completely healed after 5 months. This has been a miracle ! My other foot is scheduled once I finish PT.

Dr. McGarvey is an exceptional surgeon. His technical skills are very impressive and he's extremely knowledgeable in his specialty field. Because of his surgical skill, my surgeries were very successful. Dr. McGarvey's communication skills are excellent -- he thoroughly explains your diagnosis, prognosis and potential treatment options. Further, Dr. McGarvey has a caring approach, which helped me significantly through my recoveries. I would highly recommend Dr. McGarvey to my family and friends.

I highly recommend Dr. McGarvey. I had both bunions operated on and the result could not have been better. I had minimal pain with the surgery! I was back in running shoes after three weeks, back at the gym at four weeks, back running at seven weeks. My feet LOOK great, am back exercising now without pain, my fashion shoes way more comfortable! I only wish I had done this sooner! Thanks Dr. McGarvey!

Dr. McGarvey replaced my left ankle. This total replacement has been excellent as after one year I have full use of the ankle without pain. I followed the advice of the doctor and was non weight bearing until it healed. Great experience with a great doctor and staff!

I was told by a local physician my feet were so deformed due to rheumatoid arthritis they couldn't be fixed. Three months after reconstructive surgery on my left foot done by Dr. McGarvey, I have a beautiful (sandal-worthy) pain-free foot. I highly recommend Dr. McGarvey. He: --Is kind and sensitive to the difficulties of living with RA --Clearly outlines what to expect before, during and after surgery --Manages pain effectively
