    My right foot had been very tender and very painful for about two months, when I went to see Dr. Breskin. He was able to diagnose it right away and start treatment. I have Plantar Fasciitis. He answers all questions ...

    Dr. Briskin is the best! My various foot concerns lasted 1.5 years so I had the opportunity to see a lot of Dr. Briskin. He's an excellent surgeon and a lovely person. I'd recommend him to any friend or family member...
