    I appreciated Dr. Briskin's knowledge of my condition. I have been to several other podiatrists, and none of them were able to diagnose what was wrong with my foot. Although I am not looking forward to the remedy, which will require a surgery, I am glad I found your practice and that you are able to take care of it.
    Thank you, Joyce Tyler

    Doc said I was “fine” but I qualified for bunion study. Confused, Tried to ask about exercises & was told one I demoed was “for arch.” Well ok I think I have flat feet, so should I do it? Are ther other exercise I could do?

    The nurse is very informative & pleasant but the visits with the doctor are very brief. I mentioned ankle pain to him once, but was ignored.
    Generally a good experience with the exception of the 1st time I was injected.
    Apparently the device was wired incorrectly so they had to re-insert the needle which was very painful. Seemed the doctor was confused as to how the mistake happened or was trying to point blame on the nurse which was a little uncomfortable… why didn't he know exactly how it was to be wired?

    I am annoyed that I can get the toe fungus lacquer and cream more cheaply on the internet and you charged me full price. I was even more annoyed when I found out it was YOUR website. This should be rectified.

    I mentioned I was experiencing pain in my foot to the technician who takes out my stitches. I noted that the pain was specific to my third toe & that I noticed bleeding from underneath the bandages. The technician said the doctor would probably look at it.

    The doctor came into the exam room, noted my X-rays looked good, asked if I was experiencing any pain. I replied yes. He expressed surprise & after looking at my foot, he rebandaged it. The doctor told me I could now wash my foot, showed me how to wrap my toes & sent me on my way.

    I went home still experiencing pain & the next day decided to examine my foot now that I was allowed to clean my foot & wrap it myself. I discovered a large bloody ulcer at the base of toe #3 between toes 3 and 4. I decided to wash the ulcer daily with hydrogen peroxide and apply neosporin and a bandaid before re-wrapping my foot. 3 weeks later it is still not fully healed and I will ask the doctor to look at this

    Honestly , because i had such a great experience i now feel more confident to get anything checked out with my feet. A fear of seeing doctors slowly begins to fade when you encounter establishments like yours. My doctor was beyond helpful, and i immediately trusted him
