I have had to go to Dr. Napolitano for a foot issue twice. He and his staff are both wonderful! I would recommend his practice to anyone. I am a big baby when it comes to pain and he is very gentle and takes his time explaining what needs done and why. I drive an hour just to come here. 5 stars all the way!

I recommend Dr Napolitano to anyone that has foot problems. He is professional,kind, and willing to take the time to explain any procedure needed, or help to eliminate the problem. He relieved a painful problem that I have experienced for years. I have no pain in the foot he treated. He is the best! His staff is incredible, as well.
