I must say that the Foot and Ankle Center is a beacon of light as a business! They truly care about their patients and it shows. In severe pain, I was cared for by Dr. Frost and I was pleasantly surprised at his expertise and manner. I would highly recommend Drs Waskin and Frost for all your podiatry needs. VERY HIGHLY!
This office runs like a "well oiled machine"! Prompt appointments and beautiful surroundings. Dr. Frost (who I have been seeing for 5+ years) and his staff are professional, caring and have an AWESOME sense of humor! I've yet to try the SPA but look forward to doing so soon! Thanks Dr. Frost for the kind and caring attention.
I choose the Foot and Ankle Center after a great deal of research. Dr. Waskins and his staff have been wonderful and so accommodating throughout the entire experience. I heard plenty of horror stories about painful experiences friends had had with other doctors, but the pain management protocol here was amazing. I am 10 weeks out from my bunion surgery, and am getting ready for the second one. Dr. Waskins is very attentive and has a great sense of humor, which alleviates any and all anxiety. I highly recommend this practice if you are looking for pretty, pain-free feet!
I met with four doctors during the past two years and selected Dr. Waskin to remove my bunion and straighten four toes. I selected Dr. Waskin because of his knowledge of cutting edge surgery techniques, experience and frequency in the operating room, professionalism, pain management, care for the patient and efficient staff. I am very pleased with the operation experience. I had no or very little discomfort and am experiencing a very speedy recovery. I am grateful to Dr. Waskin and his staff.
The staff was Extremely helpful and very professional. I had many questions to which none of them went unanswered. They were thorough in diagnosing my foot issue and recommended a solution to help fix it without treating me like a number.
Very Satisfied Customer!
Thanks for your kind words. Glad we were able to help, and please let us know if you ever have any further questions!
I would not go anywhere else for foot and ankle surgery, I've already referred others I know to go to see Dr. Waskin. The staff are always friendly and helpful. Dr. Waskin has a great sense of humor which helps put you at ease. All of my questions and concerns were answered, he gave me my options and let me have time to discuss with my husband what I should do. I found Dr. Waskin after a HORRIBLE experience at another doctor who put me thru weeks of pain and unnecessary procedures and when I asked a question he would chuckle and leave the room. The first time I met Dr. Waskin he did x-rays and showed them to me and explained everything and did not leave until I said I understood and was comfortable. I wish more doctors were like him.
So glad we could help, and thank you for the referrals! We do take patient questions seriously, and put a high priority on patient education — the more you understand about what's going on with your feet, the better. Please let us know any time you have a question.
I am 6 1/2 weeks post my Bunion Surgery and all I can say is . . .AWESOME! It took me five years to get up the courage to have this surgery because of the feedback I received from family and friends who had traveled this path before me. The difference between their experience and mine . . .Dr. Waskin and the staff at the Foot and Ankle Center. Dr. W explained the pro's and con's of the procedure and was very patient with all my questions and concerns. My surgery was December 12th and my biggest concern was the PAIN . . .especially during the holidays . . . the pain was minimal and I enjoyed the holidays. The pain control protocol Dr. W implemented post surgery was great! My family and friends have been impressed with my process and recovery. My scar is minimal and all is well!. I know my experience will not be your experience . . .but Dr. Waskin and the staff at the F & A Center will make sure it is a great experience. Good Luck!
Thanks, Penelope, we appreciate you sharing your experience. Lots of people have anxiety about bunion surgery and worry about the pain, but our pain management protocol has been highly effective. Hopefully your comments here will reassure others who may be considering bunion surgery. Glad to hear you are doing well!
You get the type of service you would expect and more. Dr. Waskin and his staff are very professional, willing to do the extra with a big smile and they truly make the patients feel comfortable. It took me 2 years to decide to have bunion surgery after meeting with Dr. W and his explanation of the entire procedure. My hesitation was not due to the procedure itself, but the fact of having surgery, which is something I never had. I made the decision and now 2 months later, I am very pleased with the results. Everything Dr. W told me would happen, did; his genuineness and prompt response to my questions/concerns was more than I expected. Bottom line, if you want a professional, nice, humorous and AWESOME Dr. to work on your feet, this is the one. No pain, foot looks brand new and I'm not finshed healing. Can't wait to see the true finished product. Special KUDOS to Jessica-awesome asst that does a great job removing stitches and Lena-the best on time scheduler and encourager. They will definitely take care of you from start to finish. I truly feel like part of the Foot and Ankle Center family. Great JOB!! Waiting to get the other foot done.
Thanks so much for your kind words! Bunion surgery is a big deal, so it's understandable patients want to take their time and think about it, and we'll always do our best to answer every question and help you be prepared. Please stay in touch and let us know any time you have a question about your foot health!
Dr. Waskin and the staff at The Foot & Ankle Center are so nice and very caring. I was training for a marathon, started having soreness and pain in the bottom of my feet. Someone recommended that I go see Dr. Waskin. It was the best decision I made! Not only did he prepare me for the marathon - I was able to complete the marathon with a good time! He continues monitor my progress and provides me with stretching exercises, that I actually enjoy - and I'm preparing for my next marathon in March 2013. I consider the staff at The Foot & Ankle Center part of my training support :)
Thank you, Stacy! Hope the March marathon went well. We are honored to be considered part of your training support :)
The waiting area is very cozy. The staff is friendly and helpful. Dr. Waskin is very personable and has a great sense of humor. He is gives you all the information you need to make an informed decision about available services. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars was because the shot hurt! However, it really was 5 star service and in the end, the shot really worked. Thanks Foot & Ankle Center!!!
Thanks for the feedback! Please let us know if there's ever anything else we can do to help you and your feet stay healthy!
The laser treatment for my toe nail fungus worked! I've tried everything and this is the first effective treatment. The docs and staff are wonderful!
Thanks, Carrie — we've had remarkable results treating toenail fungus with the laser, even in tough cases where other types of treatments had failed. Thanks for your kind words, and please let us know if there's anything else we can help you with.
