I'm thankful to find this office. I've been suffering for three weeks and worried I wouldn't find a doctor as quickly. At 4 am I made a 9 Appointment and was seen right away. In office xray and a shot andboot. On my way for memorial day weekend. Thank you so much Doctor Saunders!

Dr. Saunders was great (is great). He doesn’t beat around the bush, direct to the point. Which I appreciate. He tells me his honest opinion on how to move forward with treatment while explaining things in a language I can understand.None of that “doctor lingo”. I’m thrilled I found him through ZocDoc. He’s taken great care of me. The office staff is super nice and always happy to help. I have had zero issues.

Great interaction, only thing I needed was to be prepared for the pain afterward. Didn't know what to expect, or how to treat my toe after the procedure. Quick and helpful experience, painless procedure.

We had a little misunderstanding about location and who called me before I got there. Once I arrived at the office it was an excellent appointment. The front office gal was very sweet and the doctor was quite knowledgeable and personable!Good initial visit and he addressed my heel pain with the shot I was hoping for! My heel pain was relieved. Just gotta do the exercises.

I did not like the overall manner in which I was treated especially on my last appointment. I visited the doctor a couple of times to treat my foot contusion. On my last visit: First, even though I had an appointment,the wait time is almost an hour and they lost my appointment. Also, he ordered me an ultrasound to check what's going on with my foot as I said my foot never came back to the original strength and it gets stress out and swollen easily. So I made the ultrasound appointment the next day and again after a wait time of 30 minutes, I got the test done and the radiologist said he cant find anything bad but since my foot is not healing, he will share his findings with the doctor and the doctor might plan something else, like order a MRI. Now comes the fun part, after that I waited for the doctor to call me but the receptionist said he will give me a call the next day or I can call. The next day I waited. He did not call. After that, i called the office and asked for an update, the receptionist said she will drop an email since he is super busy and the next day i again called, this time the receptionist said he was busy with surgeries and the next time I followed up, she told she will send an email saying I am angry. Today, when I again called, she said there is only one email asking the doctor to provide an update. I just asked her to provide either a soft copy or a hard copy of the patient history including the ultrasound. She said, come to office physically, sign some forms and pay the required appointment fee. So, basically even though I have already paid for my ultra sound appointment, they again want me to come to office, pay the appointment fee again. A foot bruise might be a trivial thing for the doctors and they must have seen hundreds of cases like mine and I understand. However I still feel I deserve a little attention and care for the money they are charging me. Losing my appointment, 5 minutes doctor time and handing me a pamphlet of some in house laser therapy?(done by the same busy doctor) every time is worrisome

I was hit by a car and had my foot run over, after unsatisfactory results at an urgent care, i decided that more professional methods needed to be brought in. The office is small but clean, Dr.Saunders was rather nice, andunderstanding about the issue. I will most likely see him in the future for other foot issues that may arise.

He was very friendly and helpful! I've had a problem with my foot for a long time now and other doctors dismissed it saying there was nothing they could do but he found out there was a small bone broken inmy foot and now I'm taking steps to heal it! He was so nice and personable, it made my visit very pleasant!

One thought- When giving shots in such a tender spot like the bottom of feet. He did spray a cold kind of spray. But maybe some small pain stopper in it after that. Then the big shot. Just like they do in the dentist. Just a thought!
