Patient Comments (5)

Dr. V is a great foot doctor. It's really rare that a doctor is willing to sit down and listen to you. She wasn't rushing me out the door and I really appreciate that.

I never really liked going to the doctor and have a bit of a needle phobia, but Dr. Verbesky is great. I feel really comfortable in her office. She's the best podiatrist I've ever visited.
