A patient describes how much pain she had before seeing Dr. Wishnie. She couldn't exercise, walking was painful, even getting out of bed was a painful task.
The pain on my heel and toes were very bad and to walk or exercise was unthinkable. I couldn't stand or walk when I woke up in the morning. I had to soak my feet with hot water for about 10-15 minutes before I started walking. I feel so great that I forgot about my past pain. The shoes that were recommended are perfect. I am so glad my doctor recommended me to Dr. Wishnie, he's such a nice gentleman. He gave me great care and made my life much, much better.Negetwa Helawe
Catalina was suffering from foot pain before being treated in the office. She is feeling much better now and has learned that our shoes and the way we walk greatly influences whether we experience pain in our feet.
The pain was severe, shooting, sharp persistent at times. The most pain I felt was a 10 out of 10. I was limited to be on my feet for too long, driving, walking too far. I couldn't step on my foot properly. I feel much better. No pain anymore! Going for walks and dancing now. I learned the shoes we wear and how we walk contributes to foot problems. Doing exercises on our feet helps prevent problems.Catalina Jose

My pain was severe and shooting, a 9 out of 10. Due to the pain, I couldnt wear comfortable shoes and some of my walking was limited. I'm finally back in a sneaker- it feels wonderful to walk without pain! Dr. Schaeffer has been excellent in explaining and assuring I understand the entire process throughout. The staff has been awesome! So pleasant and helpful! Excellent customer service!Sarah Dula
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.

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.
A patient describes how her foot pain was keeping her from living her everyday life. Now, that she gotten rid of pain in one foot, she can;t wait to get the other fixed, as well.
The pain was very annoying, sometimes bad enough to interfere with walking, sometimes not so bad. I had trouble walking, so I got wider shoes to help. I kept hoping it would get better. I feel much better now. The surgery and recovery wasn't too bad. Since, I am back to "real" shoes today, I assume the healing will continue and I can drive again! I'm so glad this foot is done. I'm anxious to get the other foot done!Barbara K.
