Called and reception not friendly. Asked if Dr. Proto deals with diabetics especially in regards to their feet/nails. Was informed they "don't do nail clippings" so I guess if you have great insurance for sports injuries or surgeries this is the place to come.

Dr. Proto is amazing. I came to him for a bunionectomy on my right foot. I previously had my left foot done by another doctor in a different state, so Dr. Proto did not waste time giving me information that I already knew. He is always professional and makes sure I don't have any questions before leaving. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs foot surgery.

That's my issue. I only meant with dr Porto a whole 5 minutes after its was determine. My problem would be corrected surgery. I had 4 visit and each one was handled by his pa. I really liked his pa. He can and will answer and explain everything to you. ..however this was my first time to any type of doctors where I was seen by the dr pa first and basically thur all my cisit,, I am not sure I like this. I like a dr that takes time to see his patients and not just look at us like case #
