Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dente Jr "My personal feeling is that my patients deserve all the time, knowledge, and experience necessary to bring about a successful end to their primary complaint. As quaint as it may sound, I believe that when you are sitting in front of me, you are my only patient. Foot care is one of those areas that is often regarded with some skepticism. More often than not, one is likely to hear stories of a less than satisfactory experience. It seems patients with good outcomes do not think about their feet anymore. I maintain that a podiatrist is a medical professional. I will always strive to provide you with the best possible professional care. I am aware that I am only human and that I may not have all the answers all the time. In such cases, I firmly believe that an appropriate referral in a timely fashion is in order. I also feel that your participation is important for your treatment to be successful. I have observed that the most informed patients take an active part in their treatment. When this occurs, I find the success rate rises dramatically. Therefore you will find that I make a pointed effort to make sure you become knowledgeable in the diagnosis and treatment of your condition."

He is very kind and caring, very easy to talk too. Did not keep me waiting and unlike the dr before who did my ingrown toenail, I hardly felt it. I got my appointment quick, this was a very good experience.

He listened carefully, spent a lot of time with me, and corrected the problem I had, It is the first time that I've been without painful feet in weeks. I'm extremely grateful for his professional care.

Dr. Dente operated on both of my husbands feet and did an excellent job. He is currently treating me for foot issues and I never wait long in the office, the staff is very competent and friendly, and he explains everthing to me so I understand. He is a very nice person and I highly recommend him.
