Our patient describes how wonderful her experience was at Family Foot & Ankle Specialists. She would "definitely recommend Dr. Wishnie, she had a great experience."
My foot pain was a 9 out of 10. When I would get home from work, the pain would be so bad I would have to remove my shoes. I wasn't able to walk for a long period of time or be on my feet. I have no pain now! I am able to walk for long periods of time and I can wear my sneakers. I would definitely recommend everyone to Dr. Wishnie. I had a great experience!Maria Rodriguez

A patient was so impressed by the wonderful bedside manner, as well as, the entire staff. Now, they're back to work and hobbies. They are so happy they chose Family Foot & Ankle Specialists.
My pain was constant and persistent. Most anything walking, including work, was painful. I discontinued hobbies and stopped going to the gym. Now, I'm in the beginning stages of therapy & I feel great, my pain is a 0. I'm walking, driving, and able to resume work duties. I am so happy I chose Family Foot & Ankle Specialists. The entire staff is wonderful!Dominick Lombardi

A patient describes how she caught fungus at a nail salon and Dr. Wishnie took care of the nail. The patient loved her treatment so much she referred her mom!
I was unable to wear sandals due to toenail fungus on my big toe I caught from getting pedicures at the salon-never again! I feel a lot better! My toenail is halfway grown back, Dr. Wishnie and Annette are the best. He really took care of my toenail and it's finally growing. I recommended my mom to Dr. Wishnie and she likes him a lot too.Dr. Wishnie's Patient

Our patient describes her wonderful experience with our office . After dealing with extreme pain, she is now out of pain and feeling great.
My pain was at a level 10 out of 10. I had many sleep ness nights! I found it difficult to even get out of bed. I had to rely on my family to make me food and crawling up and down the stairs seemed easier then using the crutches. After a few surgeries, I feel so much better, now that I am able to walk around and get back to the gym. I actually looked forward to my office visits. All of the staff are extremely helpful and caring.Stacey Fenkel
One of our patients was told that she needed to accept the way her toenails look- cracked and discolored. Now, after coming into our office, she is so happy that she finally got her clear, beautiful toenails back!
My pain was persistent before the fungus treatment. My toenails, especially the big toe, was always painful. I could not enjoy swimming and wearing flip flops or open toes shoes during the summer. My experience here was great, I can now wear both closed toe shoes and open toe shoes without any pain since my toenails are completely healed. I would like to thank Family Foot & Ankle Specialists for the wonderful work and I will always be grateful. I now have my toenails back after 30 years!Anonymous
A patient describes her experience in the office. She feels great now and thought our office staff was very friendly, helpful and overall wonderful!
I had severe pain on my foot. My big toe was was an 8 out 10 for pain. It was very painful day and night. I had a hard time walking up and down the stairs in my house and walking during my breaks at work. I feel great!! The office personnel are wonderful, very friendly and helpful. I will definitely recommend my friends and co-workers to visit this office!Kathleen Uhrin
A patient describes how their foot is feeling much better after their bunion surgery. Only one month into recovery, the patient can already wear sneakers and flats.
Wearing shoes- flats and sneakers became very uncomfortable with moderate pain around the areas I had bunions. Since the bunion surgery, sneakers are comfortable and flats are better. I have very slight pain in either foot, mostly from the left foot, but it's only been 1 month since the surgery so it's expected. I would (and have) recommend this surgery and this practice. If you are experiencing pain from a bunion or bunionette, call the office to set up YOUR FREE EXAM and see how quickly you can get back to your life...without pain!Jackie Hodulik
Our patient describes how orthotics relieved his pain. The difference is incredible. He went from not being to stand on his feet very long, to feeling great!
Throbbing pain on the bottom of my feet and the pain was at a 6-8 depending on the day. I couldn't stand on my feet very long. The pain is gone if I wear my inserts. The difference is night and day from when I wear my inserts and when I don't.Larry Lavender
Our patient describes how they were able to eliminate their foot and shin pain and begin running again.
I had foot and shin pain, they were sore with frequent bursts of sharp pain. I also had persistent hip soreness. My running and walking were highly limited due to injury. My work was not limited, but lifting was painful at times. The pain is significantly lower (a 1 out of 10) and I'm continuing to recover with physical therapy. My running is resuming this week with new orthotics to correct leg length discrepancy.Steven Marshall
One of our patients, a gym teacher, explains how his foot pain was interfering with his job. Now, he is back to being pain free and active.
My pain was sharp and persistent...and 8 out of 10. My job as a 5th grade gym teacher became difficult. Now, I'm back to the gym. wearing regular shoes, and work with the kids is fine. This was an excellent experience. Caring, wonderful staff especially when I was passing out!Mike Allen
Dr. Water's patient describes how his office experience got him out of pain. He was surprised by the level of personal care he received.
I had a pain level of 6 out of 10. I couldn't exercise and that was challenging. I also found it hard to perform certain DIY projects while I was in pain. I thought Dr. Waters was great and went the extra mile ensuring I was OK. She actually called me personally the following day to ensure I was OK. It was unheard of personally speaking but very appreciated and I would recommend her to anyone.Anonymous
Our patient describes how easy and painless her surgery experience was at our office. She is very happy at how quick she able to return to her normal life.
My pain was sharp and persistent- it was a 6 out of 10 generally but an 8 out of 10 after the gym or in certain shoes. I had trouble with the pain after the gym. The office visits and staff are very quick and pleasant. Everyone is so helpful. The bunion surgery was also painless. I am very happy with how quickly I could return to work and feel good and get back into a shoe!Amy Rocca
Our patient describes how extra corporeal shock wave therapy finally relieved their pain...painlessly!
I had pain for 9 months. My foot was stiff and in the heel and arch. I went to another podiatrist and got 2 cortisone shot but didn't have very good results and my pain was still at an 8. Because of the pain, I couldn't walk, go to the gym, and do all my duties at work. At Family Foot & Ankle Specialists, I had extra corporeal shock wave therapy and I had noticeable improvement in 2-3 weeks. Pain is slight to none. I can walk and do mostly everything now. The office provided good teaching and support. They presented me with all options for further treatment and no I am having follow up care to continue with improvement.Susan Grollman
Read how one of our patients describes our office as a place you will love to visit! You do not have to suffer with foot pain and we can make sure you won't have to anymore!
My first visit was with Dr. Waters several years ago. She is very professional and pleasant. She explained as she treated me that my toe nails had come off because of a fungus. Years later I still see her on a regular basis. We share the same love of pugs and I have seen her through two pregnancies. I feel like she is family. Every visit to the office I learn something new. The regular information that flows through the office, mailings and books ensures Family Foot and Ankle of an informed consumer. Kudos to all of the doctors and office staff that make this establishment one you love to visit. By the way the office staff are also professional and enjoyable. Keep up the good work!Miniimah Bilal-Shakir

A runner describes how our office was able to get him back to doing just that! After it felt like he was walking on a golf ball, now he is pain free!
The arch of foot was really painful. It was like walking on a golf ball. My foot was injured during the Boston Marathon this year. I couldn't run which is horrible for a runner! Walking was not easy wither! Now I feel great! I 'm back running 30 miles a week! If your injury is keeping you from your favorite sport or activity, call to set up your free appointment!John Kane
Achilles surgery can change your life. Our patient describes the success of her achilles tendon surgery. Before surgery, she was bed ridden and now she is able to do all that she wants.
Now, I am able to do all that I want, within reason. Before, I had a ruptured Achilles tendon and post surgery, I was bedridden for several weeks. How do I feel now? Terrific! It is hard for me to believe that I was basically bed ridden for 2 months. I am free to do what I want without pain now. Dr. Waters is an amazing doctor- both with her medical skills and her bedside manner. I am so grateful to her!Aanika Boylan
