Dr Bembynista is the most fun doctor I’ve ever seen. His personality is beyond a 5 star rating and he is also compassionate and caring (he likes to hide that side)! His skill is beyond what I had hoped for. I would give Dr. Bembynista 10 stars if I could. His staff are also exceptional...you won’t be sorry for going to see them. Your abs might hurt from laughing so much...:)

I have seen Dr. Bembynista for bunions and other foot pain for over 10 years. He has removed bunions on both of my feet. I was worried about being unable to walk after surgery, but I walked out of the surgery center and recovery was quick, with only minor post surgery pain. Thanks, Dr. B!

My mother went to Bembynista to have bunion surgery and to fix a hammer toe. He's very engaging but their were thing that I wasn't crazy about. His utensils in his exam rooms had not been sterilized between patients. You could see all the debris laying on the cabinet from the last patient who had been in there. If your scraping the foot for any reason it should be serialized or wiped down with alcohol after use. After her surgery she contacted a really bad staph infection in her foot also.

I started with Dr. Bembynista for my toenail fungus. Now after the treatments, my toenails are completely free of that gross yellow color. I had tried other remedies, but none worked. Receptionist is very nice and friendly. Dr. explains treatment thoroughly. Toenails grow slowly, so you must have patience to wait for the fungus to disappear.
