Our patient was not able to wear shoes or walk without pain. Once Kathryn began seeing Dr. Wishnie, her pain is non existent.
I had sharp pain when walking. I couldn't wear heels and was in pain when I was walking. Now, I can wear heels with no issues and no pain when walking. Dr. Wishnie and the staff have been awesome. Everyone is very friendly. Dr. Wishnie is one of the few doctors I have been treated by that makes patient's feel comfortable.Katheryn K.
Our doctor was able to keep this runner and fitness professional from having surgery with a lengthy recovery time. Julie is back to running and back to work without pain. She is hoping to run a half marathon this fall!
I was unable to run. I used to run half marathons. I'm also a fitness professional and my job was not easy with this kind of foot pain. Now, I feel great! I was able to avoid surgery. I'm able to run again! I'm hoping to run a half marathon in October.Julie C.
Our patient describes how her foot pain was effecting he quality of life. Her life slowly became work and couch, as her foot pain did not allow her to do much else.
The pain was a constant 4 or 5 every morning but by the end of the workday, it became a 9 or 10. It made it almost impossible to get anything done after a day of work. Working around the house, even after a trip to the store, after being on my feet all day at work was nearly impossible. Surprisingly, after one visit the pain was almost gone completely. Now, after a few weeks it is gone. Dr. Wishnie and his staff as always are both professional and at the same time friendly and compassionate. Whenever you walk into his office you receive a warm greeting and a smile.Renee S.
Our patient describes how her foot pain was severe, even to the point that it interfered with her sleeping. Now, she is pain free and feeling great!
When I first came in, the pain was severe. Now I have no pain at all! I had pain when I walked and sometimes even when I tried to sleep. I feel great now! I have no pain. Everyone has been wonderful!Carolyn W.
Our patient was dealing with pain so severe that she couldn't run her marathons. After laser treatment, she is running with 0 pain!
I had sharp pain in my right achilles. It was a 3/10 when walking and 6/10 when running. I couldn't run more than 1/4 mile without pain, which was especially bad being a distance runner training for a half marathon. I had 6 laser treatments while training for my half marathon. I was able to compete in my race with minimal pain. Since my race, I had 3 more laser treatments. I have had zero pain for my last 2 runs, which is pretty much a miracle!Renee D.
Our patient's pain was at a 10 out of 10...now her pain is a 0! She is able to return to her life without pain- driving, housework, and walking.
The pain was severe, sharp and persistent. On a scale of 1-10, it was 10. I couldn't do housework, drive and walking was difficult. The pain was so bad I was very limited in the things I could do. I don't have any pain now! On a scale of 1-10 my pain level is 0. I can drive, do housework, and do the same things I was able to do before the surgery. I am very pleased with Dr. Wishnie and the staff and the treatment I received.Karen C.

Our patient was having pain in their foot every time they applied pressure. It was interfering with her sport, track and field, at school. She was impressed with our friendly staff and flexible hours.
I had shooting sharp and constant pain. I couldn't walk and run which interfered with my track and field. It hurt every time I put pressure on it and I couldn't wear tight shoes. I can run without pain again and the times worked perfectly with school. I do not feel pain anymore. The staff is friendly and the schedule is flexible.Hams E.
Our patient was limited in how long she was able to be on her feet. It interfered with her housework and work. Finally, she is out of back and doing what she loves.
My pain was a 7 out of 10 before the procedure. After the procedure, my pain is a 0! I couldn't do housework or work. I could only be on my feet for a few hours oer day. Now, I feel great! Thank you for everything!Mariola S.
Our patient was limited in their activities at school and for fun. Her experience with the surgery and in the office was great. She is feeling better and loved our team so we are super happy.
Right after the surgery I felt great. The pain in my foot was minimal, it was a 2 out of 10. My pain was a 7 on the same scale before surgery. I couldn't walk in school or go swimming. Everyone in the office is great! My pain level is 0 now, I don't feel pain in my foot at all. The office girls are so nice!Karina A.
Our patient was a regular walker, walking up to 2.5 miles a day. Her foot pain was slowing her down. Now, after treatment, she is regaining her walking and gaining back her confidence.
My pain was severe, 7.5-8 on a scale of 1-10. I was limping awfully. I couldn't walk bare footed. I couldn't walk even a mile. But now, I am able to walk bare footed for sometime. I walk up to 2-2.5 miles everyday with minimal discomfort. On the rating scale my pain is 2-2.5. I can walk without limping which has given me better confidence and I am gaining back, slowly, my original gait. I really like Dr. Brad Schaeffer for his humane touch and excellent treatment. He does not allow patients to spend unnecessarily and is considerate. I will recommend him without hesitation.Radhika V.
Our patient was limited physically by their foot pain. She wasn't able to walk, do hobbies, and no zumba! Now, she is able to enjoy all her favorite activities, especially zumba!
I had sharp, shooing and persistent pain. I couldn't walk, do hobbies, I was limited in walking and no zumba! The major difference is that now I can attend zumba classes pain free! My foot feels a lot better. Prior to my visit to the office I thought I would be limited physically much longer than a month. When the doctor said it would be better a week after the treatment, it was! Thank you Dr. Wishnie!Denise Gordon

Our patient had so much foot pain they didn't want to leave the house! The patient waited year to finally decide to get the treatment she needed. Now, she is pleasantly surprised every time she walks without pain.
My pain was about a 7 out of 10. it happened whenever I walked or stood. I had difficulty walking to the point where I didn't want to go out. It took years to decide to take care of this. After 3 weeks of treatment, I feel completely different! Every time I get up, I forget that I feel so much better and am surprised I am pain free! Dr. V is wonderful- knowledgeable, friendly, and she really listened to me. I am very glad I chose Family Foot & Ankle Specialists!Elizabeth Spear

Our patient describes how they had persistent pain from his ankle problem. He was experiencing a lot of twisted ankles, but now that it is corrected, he's doing great.
The pain was a persistent pain that I came to expect anytime I wanted to play a sport. I couldn't participate in my hobbies, my ankle would always twist when playing sports. I feel good now because the ankle is in the corrected position. The doctor is straight forward with what he is doing. He's a great doctor!Krystopher Frederick

My pain was at least an 8. It was persistent and constant. I couldn't do housework, walk, play with my son. I was on crutches and couldn't put any weight on my left foot. I feel great. I am now able to walk and play with my son. The staff is excellent, very accommodating, friendly, and professional. The doctors are excellent, caring, and made my recovery simple and pleasant. I recommend them to everyone!James Just

I had numbness, throbbing, and tingling in my foot, the pain was a 6 out of 10. My activities were limited. I couldn't exercise, go jogging or biking. I feel great now! Awesome experience in and out, love Dr. Wishnie! I have no pain now. I;m taking exercising slow and hope to go back to running soon.Maria Almeida
Our patient is thankful to Dr. Wishnie for getting rid of her "bumpy, lumpy, layered fungied ingrown toenails"! They looked and felt weird but after being treated, she is feeling much better!
Ever since I was little and ever since I can remember... all of my life, I have had the bumpy, lumpy, layered fungied ingrown toenails on both of my big toes. I never thought that it would ever even be possible able to get rid of my bumpy, lumpy, layered fungied ingrown toenails that were on both of my big toes. It also became annoying because, my socks would catch on those two big toenails and it would feel funny and majorly weird, it was a feeling that someone would really not want to feel. For this - for removing my bumpy, lumpy, layered fungied ingrown toenails on both of my big toes AND for making it so that those toenails never grow back like that or at all, Dr. Wishnie, my deepest and humblest Thank You.Keren Amy Horowitz
