I love dr kazmer! He's booted me, he's performed foot surgery on me and he's done basic things too like fit me for orthotics and shave a callous.:.always kind, always straight forward and always a positive experience - my kids like dr kazmer too. I've seen him for over 15 years for my feet-ly needs. I would recommend dr kazmer to family and friends.

I sincerely appreciate Dr. Kazmer. He is knowledgeable and truly an expert podiatrist. He has diagnosed and properly treated a number of my injuries. I can always get an appointment when needed at either location. I also appreciate the in-office technology. As a busy professional it saves me time. Come visit him - you won't be disappointed.

Dr. Kazmer is a lifesaver! I had a problem with a bunion, and he discussed the options and potential side effects. He expertly fixed it - you can barely tell I had surgery! I have full range of motion, and am back in my favorite shoes! He has a fantastic way of making you feel comfortable with what needs to be done, and talks to you like a person, in layman's terms - very personable and professional. I would recommend him to everyone!

My experience with him was poor, I felt like every time I saw him I was a bother and a waste of his time.
in Barrington |
I felt he was an expert in his field and he was clear and educational in his treatment plans.
in Bartlett |
I had two separate surgeries done by Dr. Kazmer. Both experiences were exceptional. He is a very skilled surgeon. I had absolutely no complications including no major pain during the healing process. Which means I did not have to take any of the prescribed pain medication. I have recommended him to every friend I have in need of foot surgery.

My daughter and I have both seen Dr. Kazmer for ankle injuries several times over the past two years. We trust his ability to diagnose the issue and prescribe us the proper care to ensure quick and safe recoveries. It was refreshing to receive a follow up call from him within a few days to see how we were doing. The facility is really nice and his staff is great.
