  6. Always a pleasant experience.

  7. Due to a 7 year lapse since I had last had a left 4/5 toe problem I was treated on Thursday as a new patient at Raleigh Foot and Ankle. Kenzie at the reception desk was very cordial and professional. I had previously seen Dr. Woelffer at their other location.but was pleased to find they had opened a new office site closer to my home. I had a common everyday painful corn that had to be removed! He was professional but fun too. He did a good job practicing the art of distraction joking with the patient to help minimize anxiety and fear especially with me spotting that scalpel blade in his hand. In no time, the procedure was completed and it was painless! Thank you Dr. Woelffer for helping me!

  8. Dr [Woelffer] knew right away what was causing my issues and explained it to me, as well as started a treatment plan to correct the situation. I was relieved and very happy to know what was wrong and how to fix it. Dr. [Woelffer] was kind, knowledgeable and personable. I left feeling very optimistic that my problem will be resolved. [...]
