About Me

The doctor and staff were so great the whole time I was being treated over the course of 5 months for a broken foot. Dr. Scheinost made sure to take the time to explain everything and make sure I understood all treatments and options to get me healed up the fastest. Great experience with the clinic staff also. Very friendly and welcoming from the time you walk in.

I have Charcot feet and severe neuropathy. He’s done 3 operations on my left foot and 1 on my right, they were all successful and very satisfied! His work is very precise and results are excellent.

I cannot recommend Dr Scheinost enough. He was able to fix a failed double neuroma removal surgery from a previous doctor. He has a very warm and friendly bedside manner and was very sympathetic to all my problems. He is very thorough and did everything he could to avoid surgery, unlike most doctors that just want to jump into surgery right away. His staff is the most friendly and fun people I have encountered. They actually made me look forward to coming in for appointments.

7 months ago I dropped a motorcycle on my left leg. This severe injury took 3 separate surgeries to repair. Soon I am coming to the end of my journey with Dr. Scheinost, and I could not be happier with his service. He is a people guy with great humor and truly cares about his patients on a personal level as well as the physical. It’s been a long road but I am back thanks to Dr. Scheinost. I could not give Dr. Tyler Scheinost, and team, higher marks in every category and I highly recommend them.

Exam room reeked of fresh paint fumes. Open windows only made it cold! Returned next week when air cleared. Treatment deferred again to 3rd appt. Then sat waiting 40 minutes while others who arrived later were ushered in. Got refund of co-pay amount and left, disappointed with service and quality of care. Someone needs to train and manage the staff to a higher standard.

Saw this doctor in July. He barely made eye contact with me while in the exam room. He ended the appointment by saying he would order an MRI. It is now DECEMBER and the paperwork for my MRI has yet to be completed despite multiple, multiple, multiple phone calls. I finally saw another podiatrist about two weeks ago. In that time, I have been seen, had an MRI, been diagnosed and am now being treated. Unbelievable!

On December 9th of 2015 I had a fall at home and broke my foot/ankle in 3 places. In the past I had gone to Dr. Tyler Scheinost for another break I had to my foot. He was great with my care – really liked his caring and compassionate personality – for wanting to help me get well. So, when I needed my foot/ankle put back together I had no reservations about who I wanted as my orthopedic doctor. Dr. Scheinost supported me empathetically through two surgeries. His staff was great as well. The whole
