After seeing Podiatrist elsewhere four times (and never being asked to stand), I was glad it was one of the first things I was asked to do. Last time I was there, I was less impressed as it was for MRI results. Not only was it a very quick appointment, when I arrived I found it was never written down after having scheduled with them. They took me, but I paid $35 to be squeezed in for five minutes, if it was even that long (that is a lot of money for me!). So, this time I was glad to have Dana spend more time with me. She explained her immediately impressions (which were never mentioned to me by Podiatrist I saw - fallen arches - so I appreciated that) and made a referral with Podiatrist upstairs RE: orthotics. She called me back later that afternoon to tell me who to call and say that she had spoke to that doctor. Which was good, as when I called there they said they were not taking new patients. I do have an appointment scheduled but did have to wait nearly a month. However, I did not want to go back to where I was being seen. I found Dana very helpful at this appointment. However, I went all the way to Bridgewater (very out of my way) to get MRI and no comment was made on that (not even sure if it was looked at for I did not get comments relative to that). But, MUCH HAPPIER than prior visit and a little more time was spent with me for my $35 co-pay.
