Dr. Christian is very nice and professional. Non hurried, took time to explain the injury, drew the diagrams of the foot on paper and explained what can be expected. Where to worry and where not. He is one of the bestsports injury doctors I have seen. Very nice and efficient staff and extremely accommodating. I would highly recommend Dr. Christian and his efficient clinic for anyone in need of a super competent and nice orthopedic doctor.

Dr. Foglar is a wonderful doctor. I'm coming from Kaiser, where every doctors' diagnosis for my shoulder (and every other ailment) was strain and stress, and their remedy was to rest, ice, and manage stress. Imagine going from that to adoctor that did a very thorough exam, ordered an MRI, discovered I'd been living with a tear in my shoulder for years, and sent me to an equally amazing office for physical therapy. I've already recommended him to two close friends. And to top it off, the nurses and staff at his office are great too! Dr. Foglar deserves 6 stars out of 5!

If you have an orthopedic challenge, he is the doctor for the job.The only downside is follow up office visits require patience, wait times are long but his work is unsurpassed and he is tactful yet straight forward communicator with a senses of humor.
