  12. I have been a client at the Foot and Ankle practice for many years with visits on an as needed basis. I recently returned and met Dr. De Fazio at this visit. As I stated to my husband upon my return home, "I have not had such a thorough examination/evaluation concerning the pain in both feet as I did with Dr. De Fazio during my first visit with him." Dr. De Fazio answered my questions and when possible gave a demonstration in order to assess the problem. I completed a second visit with Dr. De Fazio today; and once again, I am extremely satisfied with his care. I do feel that I am making progress with my medical issues thanks to him. In addition, the staff was very helpful as well.

  14. Love coming to this office- very friendly/caring...

  15. On my initial call due to an infection in my toe, I asked for a specific doctor (who had seen my husband previously) because I didn't know the practice. The earliest appointment was a week out. I asked if someone else was available because it did not seem wise to wait a week. I was able to get an appointment for the next day. I should have thought to bring a magazine with me to the exam room. :-) You have a great team!

  16. Great, Friendly Staff starting at the front, all the way to the back!

  17. I was very happy with Dr. DeFazio's exam and follow through with suggestions forward to my case. His excellent coding and instructions resulted in FULL COVERAGE for my orthodict device from my insurance company.
