Professional from start to finish. Thorough caring physician. Staff work well as a team coordinate and solve any issues that occur. Would highly recommend using Dr. Hulst. The use of the portal was helpful in reminding of appointments. You could ask the Dr. anything and get results within few hours if open...Great to have and use..

I've used Dr. Hulst for 2 bunionectomies and a minor toenail treatment. I have always received excellent care and results and he was always patient with my many questions. The office was clean and efficient and the staff was very kind and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.

Dr. Hulst was very helpful to me in dealing with osteoarthritis in my ankles. He explained things clearly, was friendly, and very informative. I rate him highly. I wish he would slow down just a little.

After initial visit and 2 re-checks, I am most impressed w Dr Hulst and his whole office operation. He is friendly, patient-centered, and top-notch re his explanations of what's happening, how it got that way, and a path forward with options for treatment protocols. Takes the time to listen and respond to patient questions and concerns. I wholeheartedly and unhesitatingly recommend him.

I'm 69 years young and in good health. I suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and bone on bone rubbing in my right ankle which caused me severe pain. In 2/2016, I had a "Inbone" Total Ankle Replacement surgery by Dr. Hulst. I live virtually pain free after a short amount of recovery time and now walk and do activities with out pain. I would like to say that Dr. Hulst is very friendly and a great surgeon!!! He and ALL his staff were polite, helpful and knowledgeable. I'm thankful every day!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Hulst for about 15 years now, have had 5 surgeries performed by him, and highly recommend him to anyone in need of a podiatrist. He is truly phenomenal. While I was just 12 when I first started seeing Dr. Hulst, he always treated me like an adult and took my questions and concerns seriously. Thanks to Dr. Hulst I have gone from being unable to walk a quarter mile around a track, to hiking up multiple mountains last summer! I couldn't recommend any doctor more highly.
I do not recommend Dr. Hulst. He operated on my foot and the operation was a complete failure. When I showed him that I was having complications he disregarding them. I went back again a few weeks later and he then acknowledged the additional problems. I would have been much better off never having the procedure.

Dr. Hulst, listened to what I had been through with other Foot Doctors and made his own plans how to fix my fallen arch. Did not criticize the other Doctor's prior to him, for not fixing my foot but said we all have our own ideas. Very friendly and to the point as to not mislead you into thinking you are going to get better right away, up dates you at each visit, as to what to expect and what to try before the next visit. Seems to always be positive
