Dr. Lako removed bunions from both my feet. I am so pleased with the results. In a matter of 7 months (total time with each foot done 4 mos apart) I finally feel relief. His staff are very professional and helpful. I would highly recommend him for any foot/ankle needs.

I have been going to Dr Lako ever since I got diabetes and had to have toenails removed. I have always been treated with the utmost concern and respect. He has a great personality and it is always a pleasure to make my visit. I would highly recommend Dr Lake for all foot and ankle care.
