I highly recommend this practice. The office staff members are lovely, and I thought that Dr. Engorn was terrific. He has a wonderful personality, and he put me at ease right away. He suggested a course of action that instilled mewith confidence that I had found the right doctor. I will absolutely continue to see him for my various foot issues, which is saying a lot after years of ignoring my pain.

Someone in my neighborhood recommended Dr. Engorn was impressed because he was able to diagnose and correct an issue he had been having for years and doctors at the VA hadn't been able to fix. With me, Dr. Engorn was veryknowledgeable and took every minute necessary to answer my millions of questions. When you're up against the likelihood of surgery in your early thirties, you have a lot of questions and need a doctor that's willing to answer them-- Dr. Engorn takes the time to do that. We talked about different options and he encouraged me to get a second opinion, if I felt like I wanted one, since it is my first surgery and I have some reservations. I really appreciated ego not being a part of the assessment-- that's hard to find with a lot of doctors. I will most definitely be back to see Dr. Engorn.

The doctor was great. The only issue was the wait time was over 30 minuets. But once the doctor took me back the appointment and X-ray was very quick.

This was my first visit to see Dr. Engorn. He was friendly, but professional. He explained what the problem was and provided an aggressive treatment plan that was also more than adequately explained. X-rays taken on site and used effectivelyto help explain what the problem was. I highly recommend Dr. Engorn.

I am working with Dr. Engorn to address my arthritis and he has been enormously helpful. He laid out my options clearly and specifically and has been doing a lot to alleviate my pain. We've decided to go ahead with surgeryand he has taken a lot of time to explain what will be happening and why. I trust him and would recommend him to anyone.

Although the news isn't what I wanted to hear, he went over several different options with me and we havea plan going forward. We talked about managing expectations, which is so important.
