Patient Comments (2)
in Amherst. NY |
I had a 2 toenails that appeared to look like fungus. I went to another podiatrist who recommended a certain cream that "may work". I wasn't satisfied with his answer. Dr. Geila did not assume that I had fungus. He took a scraping of my nail, sent it to pathology and the final diagnosis was NOT fungus! I had plantar fasciitis on my right foot, he cured it. I had pain on the side of my left foot, he cured it. Recently, I had a bunionectomy (yesterday), so far so good. I'll get back to you....

I have recommended Dr. Gelia to others; he is fantastic. He explains everything and if you have an emergency, he sees you.
