I was experiencing severe pain due to an ingrown toenail infection. The pain was a 9 on a 1-10 pain scale. I was unable to stand or walk without experiencing severe pain. I now have no pain whatsoever. The staff was extremely personable and professional. Unlike typical a waiting room atmosphere, the atmosphere there was warm and welcoming. You guys are the best!Vincent Martinelli
A patient can walk and work without pain or limping thanks to innovative Cryosurgery.
My pain is a 1 out of 10, it feels just about normal. When I had the pain I couldn't walk or do housework. I couldn't stand for more than 15 minutes and walking was painful; I was forced to limp. Now, I can stand more than 15 minutes and I can walk without limping or pain. The cryosurgery has helped my life a lot!Karen Cohen
A patient recommends buion surgery in the treatment of bunions.
My bunions were shooting, sharp, persistent and ANNOYING! When I was walking, the bunions would;d rub on my shoes and I could not wear sandals. Now, I am pain free! The staff was exceptional. I highly recommend bunion surgery, I would do it again.Rita Wolek
A patient desribes how happy she is now that she had bunion surgery. Most people dread hearing the word surgery....but you need to look at the bigger picture. What is foot pain holding you back from?
I had pain in my heel for 2 ½ years. I had tried all therapies: stretching, night brace, cortisone shots. My only option left was surgery. Due to the pain, I was limited to walking with crutches or riding my bike. I am now able to be on my feet all day. I am not yet able to run (only at 6 weeks recovery time), but am looking forward to it.Carolyn Hoeschele
Linda's pain was so severe she could barely walk. Now, thanks to innovative Cryosurgery she can walk without pain.
On a scale of 1-10, my pain level was close to 9. Heel pain was a problem with every step I took, and it was so bad my sleeping was interupted. Just walking was impaired and standing for any period of time was nearly impossible. Treatments during the past year improved my capability to walk and handle every day tasks My pain level is down to a 1-2. The innovative Cryosurgery procedure was the key to my progress. Dr. Wishnie was the other key. The level of efficiency in his office is second to none.Linda K.
With constant foot pain, Anna couldn't walk, drive or work. She couldn't even enjoy time with her grandchildren. Now that Anna is pain free she able to enjoy life again, including spending time with her grandchildren.
I had severe, persistent, and constant foot pain at a level of 10. My limitations included doing housework, driving, walking, working, and participating in hobbies. Being a granny, I couldn't even enjoy my babies. I can now wake in the morning with a smile on my face and carry out a normal day. I am almost all better. I can even resume a normal life again. Love Dr. Wishnie and the staff were very pleasant.Anna D'Ambrosio

Do you remember life without pain? Foot pain can affect your life in many ways.
I had constant foot pain, that I’d rate a 10. I couldn’t walk or work due to the pain. I was limited to the point that I sat around the house and would be off my feet for most of the day. I feel great now and always had wonderful experiences in the office. I am able to work all day without pain. I also go to car races and do a lot of walking. It feels great knowing that these will be no pain. Pain level is 0. The doctors here do a great job for their patients.Peter Dutko
A patient with severe heel pain had been dealing with it too long. It started to impair her lifestlye so she finally got help...and she's so happy she did!
My heel pain was about a 9. It was severe, persistent and would be the worst when I woke up or had to get up from sitting. Walking was okay, but the pain from walking when I first got up started to cause me to limp and throw my back out. Now, I can do everything. The pain is completely gone and my dog, Daisy, doesn’t have to wait on those early morning walks. I was so scared of this surgery and it was really nothing. Dr. Shah was wonderful and my pain is gone.Eileen DiBlasio
William was frustrated and had almost given up hope for a painfree life until he met Dr. Wishnie. Dr. Wishnie was able to get him out of pain and back walking again.
My left heel had a lot of pain. It felt like I was walking with a stone in my shoe, and was very uncomfortable when waking up. I decided to get medical attention and Dr. Wishnie made me feel comfortable and said he will have me walking again with no pain. I put my trust in his good faith. From May 2002 to this present date February 2003, he was right. It took some time but it was worth it. The staff is also very pleasant, thoughtful and helpful.William Keating

Aaliyah, a teacher, is thrilled she is no longer dealing with ankle pain from a sprained ankle. She is happy to get her life back!
The pain in my ankle was a sharp pain, about a 7 out of 10. At one point, the pain prohibited me from walking. I couldn't stand for long periods of time, which is crucial in my job as a substitute teacher. I had a difficult time walking at some points and could not exercise. My ankle pain has went away! The staff were very friendly and caring. I can now resume my normal activities. I have recommended Family Foot & Ankle Specialists to my family members.
A patient describes how their constant foot was interfering with their life. Now, they feel better and can wear regular shoes again!
I had persistent, constant pain in both feet which was at about an 8 ot 9 out of 10. Each step I took hurt. I am on my feet all day as a teacher, I'd be in such pain after work that I had to stay off my feet for the rest of the day and evening. I have no daily pain now. Occasionally I may get twinges, but not on a regular basis. I can wear regular shoes and resume my activities! The doctors and staff here have always been warm, friendly and kind.Anonymous
A patient writes a heartwarming story about how her bunion surgery changed her life for the better! This is why we love what we do, making people's lives better!
Dr. Wishnie Family Foot and Ankle Specialist, LLC Dear Dr. Wishnie and Staff, I want to express my sincere gratitude and extreme praise for your expertise in successfully restoring the health of my right foot. My bunions and other foot problems had become intolerable to live with. My job which requires me to be on my feet 8 hours a day was becoming unbearable with a pain level that was at a 10 or higher every day. I was nearly crippled. After years of living with bunions I was extremely saddened to have to give up jogging and hiking which I love so much. I then found another love-cycling! However even that had to be given up due to the pain level I was at. Because of not just one, but two bad experiences with failed surgeries on my left foot with other surgeons I waited years to address my right foot. I interviewed over 5 specialists in this field from New York to Philadelphia. As luck would have it I found myself in your care. It was your personal approach and patience spending time with me explaining the procedures and reassuring me that you could help me that gave me the confidence to trust you with this life altering procedure. Anyone suffering with the problems I had can understand how much effect it has on your life and the constant pain never lets you forget. I believe the following pictures tell the story better than words. I remember you saying after the surgery that this was the worst bunion case you and your staff had ever come across. When I look at the before pictures I cringe remembering the pain and hopeless state I was in. Fortunately now I have a new foot and new lease on life because of your care. My entire experience with you and your staff was refreshingly personal and positive. I always received their friendly smiles and helpful assistance whenever I called or visited. You have proven that personalized professional care is still possible. And thanks again for the phone calls you personally made to me to follow up and make certain I was doing well. You’re not only a great surgeon, but a true doctor as well. Please don’t change. I want to world to know how happy you have made me. I never thought my foot would not only look this good but feel this good as well. I am back on my bike and looking forward to having you repair my left foot soon! Sincerely, Lorie KingLori King
A patient describes her experience in the office. She is pain free and very grateful.
The pain was persistant. I couldn't walk or work out. I constantly had to keep a bandage on it for support. There is no pain now! I finally feel relieved. It has always been a pleasant experience here with professional, helpful workers.Susanne Aiker
I feel like I can do any sport after just a month and a half! A patient is thankful to return to sports after their foot pain is gone.
The bunion sticking out of my foot was rubbing against the side of shoes I wore. It was especially painful with hard shoes like ski boots, to the point I stopped skiing. I could not wear normal shoes or special shoes required for sports like skiing. My left foot had the surgery and has been recovering well. I feel like I can do any sport after just a month and a half!Bruce A.

I got vey creeped out being in typical salons after I had stubborn nail fungus. I decided to try the spa at the office and was surprised that it is like any other salon...only cleaner! I felt very safe at the salon and my toenails look great!Francine
I've been having the laser therapy treatments and I'm feeling much better. A patient is thankful she chose the laser to treat her foot pain.
I had very painful plantar fasciitis in my right heel. I was not able to walk long periods of time without stopping to rest. I've been having the laser therapy treatments and I'm feeling much better! The pain is barely existent and only occurs after very long walks. I am very thankful I chose to use the laser.Jean
