A patient explains how her life was limited due to the pain she experienced with her bunion. Furthermore, she was only able to wear a limited selection of shoes.
I have zero pain now. Now, I'm back to bike riding, shopping at the mall without aspirin, and walking 3 miles again. My foot looks great and I'm able to wear all my cute shoes without pain.Lois Brauer
A patient describes how their pain is now a 0 out of 10! The patient describes how thankful he is to have the exceptional care provided by Dr. Wishnie.
My pain was persistent. Walking was difficult as the pain was persistent especially wearing shoes. I have 0 pain, my feet are happy again as I'm back to work and normal activities, enjoying each day. Dr. Wishnie was very patient and caring in assuring that I received the best care and attention. Also, I enjoyed the staff and service provided.Richard Storah
A patient describes how having foot surgery was such a huge success. The pain and recovery were much better than she expected and she can't wait to have the other foot done.
My pain was a 7 out of 10. I had throbbing pain whenever wearing shoe or during physical activity. I experienced pain during long drives, long walks, working out and running. It was all painful. This was the best experience ever! Surgery was a dream, I'm recovering fast. Physical therapy is the toughest part, but I'm improving at a normal rate which is wonderful. The doctor and staff are the best ever! Surgery did not hurt like I though it would. Have it done! Can't wait to get my other foot done!Marybeth Kayne
A patient describes how they went from shooting pain in their feet, keeping them awake at night, and now she has a pain free foot. She was very happy to see Dr. Wishnie.
I had shooting pain in the foot that persisted through the night. I couldn't stand, walk or wear any shoes without pain. I feel great now, no pain at all! I am very appreciative of the the painless foot. I am blessed to have met Dr. Wishnie! it was very life changing!Annonymous
A patient is relieved to have their back pain gone after having their feet treated. Back pain is often caused by foot pain so when you fix the foot problem, pain in the back can be eliminated, as well.
My walking and housework was very limited due the extreme pain on my lower back. Now, I am able to go on much longer walks and the pain has gone down to a a 3 on a scale of 1-10. Great job! Everyone is extremely courteous and very helpful. Thank you!Ms. Sierra
A patient describes how their foot pain was impacting their everyday life. Grocery shopping and walking was limited due to the pain. Now, after seeing the doctor, their are feeling better and able to get back to their normal life.
My first visit the pain was a 10 or more. I was no longer able to do my power walking or walk any distances without pain. Going to the mall or food store became so difficult. I feel wonderful now no pain. It was a long process but thanks to all my hard work and Dr. Waters' great care, I am back to normal and I am back to resuming all activities. Physical therapy and a great doctor is what got me to where I am now.Kathleen Pae
A patient describes how their life was impacted due to ankle pain. They weren't able to participate in their hobbies. Now, after having surgery, they feel great and have gotten back to their active lifestyle.
My pain was constant at about a 6 out of 10. I, also, could bend my ankle in almost a complete U shape. Due to the pain, I couldn't do my hobbies of Tae-Kwon-Do and horseback riding. I, also, had some trouble walking and going up and down the stairs. Now, I feel great! After the surgery and recovering I can now horseback ride again and have no pain. Also, everyone in the office was great. Thanks you Family Foot & Ankle Specialists and everyone in the office!! Dr. Waters was the only doctor willing to help me with my ankle.Sarah McDonnell
One of our patients recently had bunion surgery and is looking forward to getting back to an active lifestyle after recovering. This patient was extremely happy with her level of care in the office.
My hobbies included long walks in park, yoga, but they were all too painful to enjoy. My pain was at a 5-8 out of 10 depending on the time. Now, I can walk long distances and I am recovering well from bunion surgery. I am looking forward to going back to practicing yoga! The personnel at Family Foot & Ankle Specialists are very kind, attentive, and competent. I feel that everyone cares about my problem, from the always-friendly front desk ladies to assistants and of course the doctors. Thank you!Sarita Mello
Our patient describes her experience in the office with our team and doctors. This patient felt as though she was a part of the family and that's exactly what we strive to accomplish.
Currently, my pain is practically non existent most days. My foot and toe pain usually affected me primarily during my rest and sleep periods. I had contractures in my toes and foot. The doctor ordered physical therapy which helped me tremendously. My experience in the office was always pleasant and cheerful, very sensitive to my needs as was the doctor. I never had a negative or questionable experience. The doctor and her office staff was always 100% professional and they treated me as though I was family. I highly recommend this place for anyone with foot and ankle problems. You will not regret it!Lavenda Beck
A patient describes how she was not able to walk, going from pain to wonderful! After treatment in the office, our patient can dance, walk and live her life again!
I could barely walk, everything was extremely painful. I actually yelled in pain. I couldn't wear shoes. I was always miserable. Now, I can walk on pavement, climb stairs, even do a little dancing. It's wonderful to see such improvement after months of suffering. I am so happy with both of my feet now. I have recommended Dr. Waters to my neighbor. This is such a rewarding experience. All staff members were great!Edith Williams Wells

A patient describes their experience with one of our podiatrists. After having his life- from work to home to hobbies interrupted by foot pain, he feels amazing now!
I've had a variety of foot issues over the years, some worse than others. The most recent was due to an accessory navicular that was causing severe pain after being on my feet for long hours or physical activity such as running. The pain sometimes went as high as an 8-9. At it's worst, the pain prevented me from going to the gym and sometimes even work. During one particular episode, I had an entire vacation ruined due to the amount of pain I experienced. I sat around the entire time while while the family enjoyed the beach. I couldn't walk at all since it hurt so much. I feel almost no pain now. After surgery, I began walking and the pain was a 7-8, but has lessened each day as I walk more. After a week, the pain is now around a 2 and will probably completely go away in another few weeks.Jinesh Patel
Our patients describes how pain on her foot from a wart was affecting her ability to walk, drive, and work duties. The patient was amazed by the amazing doctors and staff at the office.
I had throbbing pain initially in my left foot ranging from a 3-8. As it turns out, the wart on my right foot was causing me to walk differently to compensate. I couldn't walk normally, driving (putting clutch in) regular work duties. I can now walk and drive normally! My pain is gone and the wart has healed and I'm a happier person again. The entire staff is amazing! They are so accommodating and friendly. Thank you! To learn more about how we painlessly treat warts click here.Kendra Berry
Our patient describes how his heel and ankle pain was effecting his everyday life. Now, after treatment, his pain is minimal and only getting better.
I came in with severe ankle/heel pain. It was a 6 out of 10 on a pain scale. The pain made it very difficult to endure a full day of labor intensive work. After a few hours on my feet, I'd be in quite a lot of pain. After a month or so I now feel significantly better. My pain is hardly at a 1 or 2, when it hurts at all and it's only getting better.Kevin Taylor
Our patient describes how she is finally pain free after suffering for many years. She cannot believe she suffered through the years when after a few visits at our office, she can walk normally again.
I had severe pain at times, maybe 3-4 times a day. Other than that, my pain is usually a constant pain (6 out of 10). I, also, have leg pain at a 6 out of 10. I could not walk properly and I hurt my knee on the other leg due to over compensating for the foot pain. I suffered from a lack of sleep because the pain would wake me up 2-3 times per night and hurt for hours. Now, I feel amazing! I have no more pain and I am enjoying walking normally for the first time in 3 years! I can't believe how long I suffered! Dr. Wishnie is the best!Donna Daly
A patient describes their experience in the office. Dealing with pain that limits your life is not how you should live. Our award winning doctors and staff can get you out of pain today!
I had persistent pain on my 4th and 5th toes on both feet. I couldn't work out due to the pain and walking long distances would become painful. I received excellent care within the office, before, during and after the surgery. I would recommend Family Foot & Ankle Specialists to anyone needing foot or ankle care, excellent doctor and staff!Kevin Anderson
A patient describes their experience in our office. The patient credits the great staff for making their experience so comfortable.
My pain was at a 5-6 except brining my leg down, then it was a 7-8. Briefly, after surgery and once the cast was off, the tendon ached occasionally, but overall the pain is now minimal. The pain affected cooking, exercising, and driving. I feel good now! The pain is minimal and only first thing in the morning, even after vigorous exercise, the discomfort is only slight. I found the experience at Family Foot & Ankle Specialists very positive. They have a great staff who made the healing experience much less stressful!Peter Zammit-Tabuna
After 4 treatments, this patient feels awesome! His feet hurt so much, he could hardly walk. Now, he is able to walk comfortably and engage in activities he was missing out on.
My pain has been severe with sharp, shooting sensations at a level 10. It was very hard and painful to stand on my feet for long periods of time. It hurt so much, I could often not even walk. After four visits of treatment, I feel awesome! No Pain! I am able to walk and feel comfortable. Family Foot & Ankle Specialists are true specialists. The doctors, the staff, the treatment and the care is what I call true love!

"I hadn't realized my back issue was due to foot problems which Dr. Wishnie was able to eliminate" My shoes had effected more than my feet. My back was in pain and I was confused. Dr. Wishnie eliminated my pain and educated me on the importance of properly fitting shoes.
I had been wearing uncomfortable shoes and my feet began to hurt, badly. Surprisingly, in what I believed to be a completely unrelated event, I also started to experience back pain. Dr. Wishnie realized that my pains were a result of my ill-fitting shoes. Without the help and knowledge of Dr. Wishnie, I would not have known the implications of wearing uncomfortable shoes and would still be living with extreme back and feet pain. Thank you, Dr. Wishnie for eliminating my pain while providing me with comfortable orthotics! To learn more about the benefits of orthotics click here.Dr. Wishnie's Patient
For many months, I suffered from debilitating heel pain- I was limited in how far I could walk before the pain stopped me in my tracks. After therapy at Family Foot and Ankle Specialists, I am happy to say that I am walking again, without pain!
I had been suffering from severe heel pain. The pain was debilitating and could be described as a "9/10" on a 1-10 pain scale, or as one of the worst pains imaginable. For months, my abilities were limited. My heel pain made it impossible to walk for long periods of time. I am glad that I scheduled an appointment at Family Foot and Ankle Specialists for so many reasons. The staff was not only, kind and accommodating, but also very knowledgeable. After treatment, the pain in my right heel had completely disappeared! In my left, there was some slight discomfort, however the staff at Family Foot and Ankle Specialists provided me with foot exercises which I truly believe will relieve me from heel pain completely.
