What People Say About Dr. Tatiana Wellens, DPM

Dr. Wellens has treated me for plantar fasciitis on both feet. I really like that she tries all options from the easiest to the most involved procedure. Dr.Wellens takes time to explain why problems are occurring and offers other things like exercises and footwear to improve your condition. I think the staff has been very accommodating for scheduling and answering questions.

The staff in this office are simply amazing. They take the time to explain everything in detail. I came to see Dr Wellens for pain in my foot. She took the time to explain was causing the pain and gave me different options. My foot has never felt better. Thank you so much to Dr. Wellens and her staff!

Had surgery on both feet 2 years ago was told prior to surgery that my condition couldn't get worse. So I tried her surgery after which my condition got a lot worse. I did therapy for a while and followed up with her and she was flippant and blamed the therapy people Still I'm in pain all the time and much worse off than prior to surgery I am really upset about the whole ordeal. Now I fly to NYC and I'm getting care at the HSS

How fortunate I was to have found Dr. Wellens and her staff. Dr. Wellens does not sugar coat anything and will simply tell you straight up front whether or not she can help you. Protocols are set in place by insurance companies, not Central Florida Foot and Ankle, that state what services can be performed; require upfront payments of services rendered and pre-op payments in full... up to each individuals' maximum out of pocket. I was given explicit details on what was covered and what was not an

I was a new patient. Called at 9AM for an appointment for painful ingrown toenail. Scheduled me for 2PM that same day, (which is almost unheard of these days). Arrived early 1:30PM to fill out paperwork. Was called into exam room at 1:50PM. Was attended to right then. Dr. Wellens numbed my toe and returned shortly to extract the toenail. Very pleased with the service and care.

I can't say enough good about Dr. Wellens and her staff! She cares for you like she is caring for family! I went to see her the first part of December 2017 and she knew that I needed surgery, she made me as comfortable as could be till the first of the year to help save me a 1500 dollar copay..plus. then the surgery went well with no issues...another plus. An issue came up with my foot and she and her staff has been taking care of that now.

Dr Wellens performed a right Hallux McBride bunionectomy and second toe hammertoe correction with an implant application. She did a wonderful job and I am quite pleased with the results. Will followup with PT and continue with the laser treatments. I would highly recommend her freely.

Dr. Wellens has been most helpful with my, much needed, feet concerns. I am most grateful for her ability to help me be able to walk so much more comfortably, with so much ease. I am so glad that I was able to use her services, and both she and her staff have been most friendly and helpful. Without her help, I was unable to even walk normally, and was always in much pain. Now I have no pain, and walk anywhere, anytime, with such comfort. I have, and will always recommend Dr. Wellens.

Dr. Wellen and her staff are very professional and polite. They also are very personable and addressed all my questions and concerns. They made me feel comfortable and at home. I would gladly recommend the Central Florida Foot and Ankle Clinic.
