I had bunion surgery and also had a protruding bone correction with this doctor. After the surgery I could tell during healing that the operation had not been successful. Follow up xrays were taken and during one visit he pointed out that he could have shown me a different xray of my foot to mislead me into thinking the operation was more of a success, but hadn't. I think he wanted a pat on the back for not lying! Another time I was crying because the outcome was so disappointing. I had raised my voice but not alot, only because I was crying. He said "I feel like I'm being attacked". It was not an attack, it was a patient that was severely disappointed. Another time he looked at the bone still protruding from my second toe and said I feel like this wasn't so big before!!! Walk, run or jump AWAY from this doctor.

Dr adelstein is a great doctor. He doesn't overly prescribe or suggest unnecessary surgeries. He is communicative and I appreciate that in the medical community. He explains thoroughly. I am working with him for my severe plantar fasciitis, heel spurs and a wart. We now may do orthotics. Also, they are usually very diligent on getting you in and out quickly. Bonus...Very pleased!

I would recommend Dr. Adelstein to anyone that is looking for an excellent foot doctor! His office staff was extremely helpful and professional. I had an in-grown nail that required attention, and I was looking for a doctor with good ratings who could see me quickly. He was very thorough and extremely attentive during my office visit. He made me feel at ease, and before I knew it, he was finished. I didn't feel a thing! I had a very pleasant experience, and I would highly recommend this office!

I was in pain. I had been driving by and noticed the Foot Clinic storefront and decided that something just needed to be done. I had never visited a podiatrist before and was a little anxious...and in pain. I walked in and just happened upon a canceled appointment. Dr. Adelstein was able to see me and fixed my ingrown toe nail. He was very nice assured me that he could make it right again. Some anesthetic, a couple of clips, a nice bandage and I was good to go! No pain! Ibuprofin later..

Professional, knowledgeable and caring doctor and surgeon. Informs you of what he sees, but doesn't push. Personally called me after surgery to follow up. Surgical team and staff are friendly. Prices are reasonable and post-surgery follow-up appts. are excellent. This is the guy to choose if you need foot surgery.

I saw Dr. Adelstein on 4/28/17 for a Diabetic foot problem. He was very professional and did a great job in handling the procedure , nail cutting, explanations etc. His assistant Ellen (?) was like a part of him, knowing what and where to be to assist. Very impressive. Will be followed by him for years to come.
