At the time of your appointment you should expect that Dr. Solon will take the time to listen to you and talk with you to get a very complete history of your foot or ankle condition.  In office diagnostic digital radiographs and ultrasound exams are done to evaluate many conditions, Dr. Solon will go over these exams with you at the time of your visit so you have a good understanding of your condition.  Dr. Solon believes that your education and understanding of problem that you have is very important and is the first step in getting your condition treated.  You should expect that you will be given several treatment options and that in most instances conservative care will be recommended as a good starting point.  In this office your questions are encouraged and you can expect that your questions will be answered by Dr. Solon in a manner that is easy to understand.  Dr. Solon believes that while he is in the treatment room with you, he is there to care for you; so you will not find him typing notes into a computer during your visit, you will have his attention for your entire visit.

Patient Comments (1)
in Caledonia, MI |
I had spoken with 2 doctors before meeting Dr Solon, the experience was completely different, Dr Solon took the time using visual aids to explain exactly my condition and my options to fix it. Also he made me feel very comfortable not only with his level of expertise but also with post opp care for pain and recovery. Just as Dr Solon stated I had very little pain and discomfort because I followed his direction to the T. I could not be happier and will continue to recommend Dr Solon!
