Never a one to write, but Doctor Cohen probably saved my toes from a very painful ordeal and I felt a need to reward his care. As a director of a second unit shoot in Vegas we are always trying to find the exact location to get a feel for the city. This past week while shooting at the Planet Hollywood resort at night ( of course) My 1st assistant decided to put all 280 lbs straight down on my left big toe. The pain was unbearable and the toe went from flesh to blue to black in 5 minutes. I obviously got scared and went screaming for someone to take me to the hospital. The nurse on the set said that she had the number of the union podiatrist and having worked with Dr. Cohen before assured me that even though late in the evening he would come into his office to see me. Long story very short, she made the call to Doc. he was there before us. He reassured me after taking the x-ray that the broken toe ( I'm gonna kill the fat slob of an assistant) would heal without the need for surgery. I was bandaged up given some Motrin and a foot radio of all things and sent back to the hotel. Like I said I don't think I have even reviewed a restaurant in the past but this guy is so warm, friendly and again, reassuring that I need to offer kudo's to a great Doc. Thanks again for the help Doc ( though your film advice I could do without, LOL) you truly are the real deal. Mel.
I flew into Vegas when my mother was admitted to the ICU. I cried when I saw her feet. They looked like claws. The nails were partially torn and the cuticles were bleeding. I don't know how she even walked. The nurses had taped booties on her feet because they were getting clawed overtime they walked by her bed. They said the Doctor had requested a Podiatry consult, but after 3 days of waiting the Podiatrist called back and said "I don't trim toenails." I searched the web and found Dr Louk. He carefully trimmed the horrible nails, and Mom didn't even wake up during the treatment. I thought his $230 bill was a little steep. Then I got the hospital bill for the booties. $670 for 2 lumps of sponge and some velcro straps. I was so relieved when Dr Louk offered to check on Mom's feet when she was transferred to Rehab and later to an assisted living facility. I never want to see my mother in this condition again.
I recently found myself on a mission to find a podiatrist that could help me with my problem feet. I had been to several other locations in the valley and never felt that these other places were capable of dealing with my issues. I had been given the run around on many occasions. When I first visited Apache Foot & Ankle, I was greeted by the warmest staff, and welcomed into the facility as if I had been a long time patient. They were very friendly, and welcomed me with open arms. The Doctor was extremely knowledgable and listened to what I had to say. He offered his expert opinion, and since then, I have had no more issues. I highly recommend everyone come to Apache Foot & Ankle, there is no other place that can offer the same great service, and get the job done. I have referred all of my friends to here, and will continue to do so.
