A patient describes how their severe pain was treated and now they're doing great! They haven't been having any issues getting back to their active lifestyle.
My pain was severe; like a 7 out of 10. With the pain, I was barely able to put on shoes or put my foot on the ground. Now, I feel great! I have been working out and running without any issues.Jennifer Ross
Toenail fungus affected this woman's life to the point she wouldn't wear sandals or go barefoot in her own house! Our Hillsborough toenail plan can get rid of unsightly toenail fungus.
It may sound right to complain of ugly toenails, but it truly affected my life. I came to Dr. Wishnie because my toenails were yellow and cracked. On the ugly scale, they were a ten! I couldn't wear sandals or feel comfortable going barefoot...even in my own house! Dr. Wishnie's laser and Keryflex over a 6 month period, made my toenails look amazing. I can now wear sandals and go barefoot without feeling self conscious. Dr. Wishnie and his entire office staff are the most professional and caring health care persons I have ever met! They truly work as a well managed team. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for curing me and caring for me.Eileen McClenahan
A patient describes how she got her life back...and her dancing days back thanks to Dr. Wishnie's help!
My pain was at an 8 out 10. It would mostly strike in the evening and was so severe it would wake me up in the night. I feel super great now! Dr. Wishnie is a miracle man! he got me back to the dance floor!Shirley DeFillipo
Tina, a patient at the office describes her experience before she came into the office...and how she's felling now. Here's a hint, she's feeling much better!
My pain was a 10 out of 10. I was limited on all my activity due to my painful ankle pain. It hurt too much to walk and work out. Now my pain is barely at a level 1. You guys are great! Love you!Tina Palak Modi
One of our wonderful patients describes how our office was able to create an "environment of wellness" that he would highly recommend to anyone with foot or ankle problems.
I highly recommend Dr. Wishnie and his top notch staff. In addition to being competent and professional in dealing with my foot problems (which I expected), every member of Dr. Wishnie's team was without exception so remarkably pleasant and engaging. They created an environment of "wellness" to which all health care related offices should aspire.Kevin McGettigan
A runner describes how they experiences sharp pain on the inside of their ankle during a race. After treatment from our Piscataway podiatrists, they are feeling much better.
I had sharp, burning pain on the inside of my ankle near my arch. It happened right in the middle of a race I was running. The pain was an 8 on a scale on 1-10. I couldn't run any long distances without the pain becoming unbearable. It even hurt when I walked. I am feeling much better now. The custom orthotics and the rehab exercises have improved my tendonitis tremendously. My pain is now at a 1on a scale of 1-10 and still improving.James Sellar
A patient described her experience with the office and how much she loves the staff!
Dear Dr. Wishnie, I just wanted to write a quick note to say how sweet, polite and professional your staff has consistently been. What a relief to go to the office after a long, stressful day. Absolutely fabulous staff!MARGUERITE KING
Kenneth, a patient describes how his new sandals have made his foot pain go from a an 8 to a feeling great!
On a scale of 1-10 prior to buying my 2 pairs of sandals was a 7 or 8. Now, the sandals fit and feel great! Before my activities were limited due to the pain, I had trouble walking, golfing, and general errands were difficult. Now, I feel much better. The office staff is wonderful , Dr. Wishnie is great and this is the nicest doctor office I have visited. I highly recommend the service provided by Family Foot & Ankle Specialists.Kenneth Bernstein
A patient explains how her severe foot pain would make her tear when her feet touched the ground.
My pain was a 10 out of 10!I had severe pain so bad I didn't want my feet to touch the floor because the heel pain would make me tear. I couldn't do housework, walking and going up and down the stairs was difficult because of the pain and it was hard to shower. I feel 100% better now! The doctor and assistants made me feel at ease and explained everything in detail. I waited less than 24 hours for an appointment. I am so impressed by the staff I have been telling everyone I know with foot problems.FooCarol Saunders
Our patient describes how their foot pain has dramatically decreased since being treated with custom orthotics in the office.
When I first came into the office my pain was a 10, now I'm between a 4-6 because of the new orthotics. I couldn't work due to the pain, but fortunately I am back. Now that I have the orthotics, I feel very good. I have a little pain in the morning, but that's all. This is a very courteous doctor's office. The whole staff from Dr. Wishnie to the young ladies that answer the phones and make appointments.Chris Bellamy
A patient describes how Dr. Waters, a podiatrist in Hillsborough, NJ helped to get her pain free.
I was in severe pain- over a 10 out of 10. The pain was indescribable. I could not walk at all, I could for maybe about 2 hours but the pain was so bad. Now, Im feeling 100% better. I can do everything including getting pedicures! Yay!! Dr. Water's is a great doctor, she helped me through this whole process with great advice and great treatment to make my foot get back to normal :)Tina Cicero
A patient describes her experience having bunion surgery in the office. While at first she was apprehensive, she is thrilled with the results.
I had severe pain in my right foot when walking any more than an hour due to a bunion I had. The pain was a 9 out of 10. I wasn't able to go for long walks. I was really restricted to a limited selection of shoes, which would work with my foot. Now, after the surgery, I feel great! My foot is still a little sore after long walks but it's more of a foot ache and I expect this to improve as my foot continues to heal. I was very nervous about the bunion surgery, I had postponed it many times. Dr. Wishnie and staff were supportive and helpful throughout the whole process.Ann Rahn
A patient was frustrated with no one being able to help his problem. He is so thankful to Dr. Waters for being able to finally make his pain go away.
My pain was a 9 on a scale of 1-10. I was unable to walk or perform minimal activities. The pain was persistent, constant, and often sharp in my heels and achilles. It was awful. I wasn't able to do housework, walk, hobbies, get to work without pain or play with my son. This was due to the pain in my heels and achilles. Now after treatment, I walk without the horrible heel pain. I can now resume normal everyday activities. The pain has gone down to a 2. Dr. Waters is the third podiatrist to care for my feet. However, she is the first to actually make my pain go away. Thanks Dr. Waters and staff!Wayne Thompson
A patient describes how his lifestyle and activities were limited due to his foot pain.
My pain was severe and sharp, a 9 out of 10. There were many activities I couldn't do due to the pain including hobbies, walking, and driving. Now, I feel great! My pain is completely gone! I will not be able to drive, shoot pool and get back to work. Dr. Waters is great! She took care of my pain and took the time to explain in detail my issue and how to further prevent it!James Sheedy
One of our patients describes how her life has improved since she had hammertoe surgery. Her everyday life was becoming too painful to bear.
I had a throbbing pain in my toe that got progressively worse over the last year or more reaching a level of 8 or 9 out of 10. Also, a callus formed between the toes. I had pain standing to cook dinner especially when standing for longer periods of time. My pain now is almost non existent. I may get a little prick that lasts 2 seconds once in a while, but I'm still healing. Dr. Wishnie has answered my questions and the staff have been gentle and friendly, I am very happy that I had the surgery!Esther Dorkin
Our patient is very satisfied with her treatment while in the office. She had a wonderful experience with Dr. Waters and Joan in our Hillsborough office.
I couldn't walk on the wart, it was at the bottom of my foot where all the pressure is. I was not able to do many activities due to the pain including walking and exercising. Dr. Waters solved my case! I am very grateful. She is really good. Joan is wonderful, as well. Always smiling! Thanks for the great service!Carlius Anderson
Barbara's surgery was so successful she wishes she had it sooner! Before the surgery she had a lot of pain and trouble walking, now, she is pain free and happy!
For several years, I had severe pain when walking because of issues with my second toe and scar tissue from an implant. I probably could have done housework but walking was difficult from the pain and I often tripped and fell. Now, I have no pain, I can walk! I loved the surgery facility. Everyone at Dr. Wishnie's office is wonderful and caring. Dr. Wishnie is a magician. I wish I would have taken care of this problem sooner!Barbara Reeder
A patient expresses her gratitude to Dr. Wishnie after she thought there was no hope left. Hammertoes, achilles tendonitis, and bunions were just a start to her foot problems, thankfully Dr. Wishnie got her pain free and happy!
As far back as I can remember, my feet have been a source of discomfort. So much so, that I began to equate their sensitivity to the Princess in the fable "The Princess and the Pea", her ability to feel a pea through a stack of mattresses. Flat feet, born with them. Bunions inherited (smile). Weak ankles, which in the teen years, often needed wrapping as a result of a mis-step during basketball and gym (PT). Developing hammertoes, becoming more and more pronounced as time passed. The onset of diabetes two years ago, and taking into consideration the effect it could have on my feet is what prompted me to see a doctor. Encouraged by my Sister-In-Law, and upon her recommendation, who is a patient of Dr. Wishnie, I became one of his patients. It was the best decision I could've made. The achilles tendonitis by this time decided to act up. Especially the one on my right foot, causing much pain and swelling, so much that in order for me to walk, I needed the assistance of a cane. As a result of Dr. Wishnie's expertise, diligence and concern, having been fitted with a brace, the pain and swelling was eliminated and also the need for a cane. For which I am very thankful. One final though, I appreciate the Atmosphere of Welcome and evidence of professionalism and concern that pervades the office. Have a Happy and Prosperous New Year One and All! Gratefully and Sincerely Yours, Jean BoseJean Bose
It Gave Me the WOW Factor! You made me feel 'cared for' and gave me your total attention.
Dear Doctor Waters & Team at FFAS, I would like to say thank you for the responsive and professional treatment last week when I attended your offices in Hillsborough. The service was excellent and the personal touch by Doctor Waters was very much appreciated. You made me feel 'cared for' and gave me your total attention and as such I came away feeling reassured you both understood my condition and gave me full confidence in the treatment you prescribed. Very much appreciated. I also received your wonderful letter this morning. How refreshing to receive such a personalized note from a practitioner in the medical profession. A first ever for me here. It gave me the WOW factor! Your sincere caring approach to your patients comes shining through and believe me it is both appreciated and extremely reassuring that the personal touch is not lost in a profession that seemingly, at least on the surface, only cares about their priorities. Keep up the great work and I for one will be sure to spread the good word about your services. Sincerely, Tom MeekTom Meek- Princeton, NJ
A patient makes a friend in our office. Dr. Wishnie was able to get her out of pain.
I limped into Dr. Wishnie's office and walked out without any pain. Even more than that was so impressed with Dr. Wishnie's follow up appointemtns, he showed actual concern for his patients. I have a new doctor and feel like I have a new friend!Roberta M
