I have had various foot issues over the years. Dr. Dejesus is knowledgeable and thorough in diagnosis and treatment. He often provides several options and gives his professional opinion on each.

Dr DeJesus did surgery on both my bunions years ago and I've never had problems since. He is a very kind doctor.
