Learn how patient feedback is cultivated
  1. Dr. Defazio is fully knowledgeable about my existing ankle issues. After xrays, it was good to know that my situation has not changed much from before, which was, kind of a good news that it has not gone worse. Certain things in life are, as they are. Nobody can stop from getting older, & aging has its own challenges.

  2. the doctor was excellent, nice person and helpful

  3. Safety concerns re Covid handled very well

  4. Dr. Friske is terrific! He always takes time with the appointment, never rushes me. He inspires confidence.

  5. Dr. Friske is excellent

  6. Always very pleasant and takes the time to answer all my questions.

  7. This was an unscheduled visit. Although the podiatrist I see was not available I was given an appointment with one of the others doctors for a few hours later. I was seen promptly for a serious condition. Dr. Olivera was professional, compassionate and comforting. He explained everything and made sure I had no questions when I left. My follow up is with my regular podiatrist and I would be happy to see Dr. Olivera again.

  8. Im impressed with Dr. Fiske. He is patient and he interacts with me. I like him.

  9. Excellent service from front desk, in-take rep and Dr. Friske

  10. Have been a patient of Dr Gene Mirkin, a member of Foot and Ankle for many years. Due to difficulty in his very busy schedule, and the distance to travel, I did Podarist Research and remembered his recommendation to go to Foot and Ankle. (I was a patient of his for over 30 yrs) From my first signing in to, and visit with Dr. Fiske, to the leaving, I was very pleased how welcomed and kind everyone is.

  11. Had a recurrent infection, got an appointment the same day and the issue addressed that morning. Would happily refer to DeFazio
