Would NOT recommend this physician. Very poor interpersonal skills and was unwilling (or perhaps unable) to communicate information about a treatment plan. There are many qualified specialists in this market, so it would be worth checking into other options.

Seemed more focused on making sure his evaluation as a DPM was good, wanted to see me for repeat visit far too soon for what was needed and expected.
