I made a podiatry appointment with Dr. Steven Effern and he was such a great foot Dr. He had a very nice mannerism and addressed my foot issue. He clearly explained the cause. The office staff were very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Steven Effren for your foot and ankle issues. He’s a very caring polite Dr.

From my experience, Dr. Effren is a dedicated medical professional. He evaluated my foot issue and shared his professional insight. Although I am very knowledgeable of anatomy, he made sure I understood how my issue could impact my life in the future. He considered my age, health, activity level, and other factors as he made his recommendations, explaining that although surgical repair was not an emergency, it would eventually be a step I would probably have to take. I felt confident as I went forward with surgery. His explanation of my recovery was perfect! Within just a week, I was taking no pain medication at all! His caring staff did a great job setting up appointments. I am glad Dr. Effren is a participating provider with my health plan. If you have been putting off necessary foot surgery, I would recommend you go ahead with it. It wasn't nearly as bad as all of the horror stories that I have heard. You will have a compassionate "partner" in Dr. Effren--all along the way.
