Dr. Kibler's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kibler "As a recognized leader in foot and ankle healthcare in the eastern Carolinas, Dr. Kibler has experience in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery through the renowned University of Pennsylvania Health System in Philadelphia. Dr. Kibler meets all problems of the feet and ankles with a high degree of skill coupled with years of surgical experience and leading-edge technology. His focus on long-term results has earned the trust of thousands of patients and their doctors. In 2006, Dr. Kibler saw the need for complete diabetic foot care for local residents so he established THE DIABETIC FOOT CENTER. Dr. Kibler's efforts have helped save countless patients from foot or leg amputation by managing diabetic patients with periodic foot care and disease prevention all the way through wound healing and limb reconstruction when limb threatening complications arise. In 2011, Dr. Kibler brought GenesisPlus by Cutera to Brunswick County. Genesis Plus is a laser treatment for toenail fungus. With as little as two treatments, in combination of the use of topical fungus care products, patients are able to see results with clearer nails. Digital x-rays and diagnostic ultrasound imaging are used in the office to help detect conditions around the foot and ankle so that appropriate treatment can be started right away."

I have had foot pain from a badly jammed big toe for weeks. I visited Dr Kibler for an evaluation of the issue ... he found osteoarthritis in the third joint back... I chose the laser therapy option and after 6 treatments, I am pain free. The DOC also is going to deal with a toenail that has never grown back properly since the injury. A very capable professional with a great staff!

I found Dr. Kibler to be charming and extremely competent. I had a toenail growing into the side of my toe which had been painful off and on for several years. He explained what he would do, did it in a minimum amount of time and caused me no pain. I was able to go to a Zumba class within 48 hours.

A great experience, will go back
We are glad we were able to give you such "a great experience" and look forward to providing future services when needed!

Dr. Kibler is a joke of a physician. I came to him with a serious great toe joint issue and he went on to sell me on a fortune in worthless laser treatments @ $50 each and not covered by insurance. Finally I came to such dispair that I requested a cortisone injection with the added benefit of ultrasound to be sure he hits the joint (a common practice) due to the fact that his last cortisone injection completely missed the jooint and did nothing. Keep in mind that a podiatrist is NOT an MD.
