Patient Comments (1)
in Vacaville, CA |
I have had a problem with my left ankle for three years. I finally got a referral to see a Podiatrist and Dr. Highsmith was the doctor I was referred to. From the very first visit I felt comfortable and felt as if the doctor really listened to my problems. After trying a couple of things that made some improvement, the doctor went further and I had an MRI. Finally a doctor who listened and was compassionate to my discomfort. Dr. Highsmith is a wonderful Podiatrist!
