Dr Pelto, never a long wait, always pleasant and easy to speak with. The best thing about Dr Pelto, he is right to the point, telling it like it is. I would suggest if you have a foot problem see the good Doc. Vin.

in Barre, MA |
Dr. Pelto was kind, friendly and courteous to myself and my husband. He respected both us and our opinions and was open to discussion whenever we had a question. His warmth and care was genuine. I just love a Doctor who will laugh over something humorous with you! His surgery was highly successful, I am happy to report. Wish he could be cloned so we could have him as our primary care physician.
in Holden, MA |
After suffering with foot pain for almost 2 years, I scheduled an appointment with Dr Pelto at Central Mass Podiatry. He identified and resolved the issue perfectly. The office is easy to find with plenty of free parking. The Dr and staff are very welcoming and modern. I am now walking pain free and will happily recommend this practice to any and all.
