Our patient came in with bad pain on his foot. After seeing Dr. Bonnie her son has not complained about his pain.
My son’s pain was a 7 out of a 10 and very persistent. He was not able to play with his friends because his pain was so bad, but he is better now and never complains about his pain. He can walk and run with other children without any pain, thank you to Dr. Bonnie and her staff. They are so nice, and very pleasant.Vanish
Our patient had such a great experience in our Hillsborough office that he took the time to write in a very kind and heartfelt letter of appreciation. He was pleased with all of the team members he encountered in the office from the front desk, the nurse, and the doctor. We are so happy to be able to treat our patients everyday.
Dear Dr. Wishnie, Of all the medical doctors I have seen and most specialists too, your practice is the only one I can remember where both the receptionist and nursing staff were happy to be doing their jobs and communicated that to the patient through words and body language that the patient, in this case me I felt I would receive good care and the motto of physicians, "do no harm", clearly applied. The staff that I encountered in Hillsborough, Ashley- the receptionist, she has a great sense of humor and responded to me with great joy. Elaine the nurse was terrific and also very compassionate and kind. Last but not least was Dr. Schaeffer, he was smiling when I saw him and not laughing at me but with me. I told him of an injury of stubbing my toe with bleeding and he administered some kind of cream Silvadene, that immediately brought the pain to an end. Elaine gave me iodine to take home after that. So whatever else you need as a testimony, I will supply it. The testimonials on the website are great but mine was really about the staff and their friendly, happy, professional manner!Kevin Whalen
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 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
"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.
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
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

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
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
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
A patient's life was put on hold while they experienced horrible foot pain. They are so happy to be able to do the activities they love now that the pain is gone!
I felt extreme, severe pain. My pain was 11 on a scale of 1-10. As a result, I could not workout at the gym or stand for long periods of time. Now I feel pain free like nothing was ever wrong. Everyone at Family Foot and Ankle Specialists was fabulous and I would recommend this practice to anyone. Dr. Wishnie is the best!John McManus
A patient describes how foot surgery finally ended their pain. They praise Dr. Wishnie and our team for making them feel calm and comfortable throughout the entire process.
I was in severe pain and walking became very painful. I work with children, if they accidentally stepped on my foot my pain was very severe. Now, I feel much better. I can walk without pain. The staff and doctors made me feel very calm and comfortable. Having this operation done was a good thing for me to do. I would recommend Dr. Wishnie, and of course his staff, to everyone. Thanks so much for making my life a better one.Bonnie G.
