Yelp Patient Reviews, in their own words...

The following five star Yelp review was posted by University Foot and Ankle patient, Laura:

5 Star Yelp review, University Foot and Ankle Institute

My son had a recent surgery there and I cant say enough about the level of professionalism and client service. The Doctor (Dr. Carter) was incredibly knowledgeable, kind and his response time to questions was faster than any other Doctor we have dealt with. He was extremely kind and patient with my son who has a rare neurological disability which makes it difficult to communicate with him.


Dr. Carter was flawless and worked with my son to make him comfortable. Everyone in the office who I encountered was kind, professional and patient with my many questions. I highly recommend them. Five star service!
