Patient Survey ReviewsLearn how patient feedback is cultivated
Dr. De Fazio was amazing! My 16 year old daughter came in for her 2nd bunion surgery [...] Dr. DeFazio stepped up quickly and was able to clearly describe the surgery and what was expected. After surgery, he came out and talked with me about how it went and provided an x-ray. In the months following, he was always accessible to answer my questions. I would highly recommend him. In addition to the doctors, I would also like to thank the staff. The nurses and front desk personnel are all friendly, helpful, and professional. From the moment you walk in the door until you are ready to leave, they are always there with a smile, kind word, and professional attitude.
Usual excellent experience!

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.
