My husband was having pressure and numbness near his toes. After treatment by Dr. Oaks his entire feet were in pain. The three injections did not help at all. His quick diagnosis was wrong and caused more problems.
Dear Richins in Roy, We're sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience. This was not our intention. We appreciate your feedback. We hope that you will give us a chance to make it right. Unfortunately, not every treatment works the same for every patient. We strive our best to follow best practices so that the greatest impact may be seen with the least expense and time. If you would like to discuss this further please feel free to contact our office. Thanks again for your input.

Dr.Oaks is an amazing Dr. I came into his office because of some surgery that I have had done by another Dr. and Dr. Oaks told me what he thought should be done and so I put my trust into Dr.Oaks and he did the surgery and when it was all done we thought that it took care of the problem but it still was not quite there so i went back into him and he told me what the problem was and he went back in and fixed it...Dr Oaks is the best and i have recommended other patients to him ..thank you Dr Oaks
Thank you for your kind words. The greatest praise we can receive from our patients is a referral of family and friends (as needed). Thanks again.
