Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Schaengold is a straight shooter whom I believe recommended the best solution to my problem. He has shown he is very experienced and I trust him completely.
Doctor was very patient explaining all the treatment options and making sure I understood.
Dr. Schaengold is always so kind and responsive and I trust in his suggestions for treatment. I went in for a sore foot and came out with 4-6 options for how to proceed. He is very knowledgeable and efficient in his interactions. I appreciate that he spends time talking with me about my personal life while attending to the issue.
Very thorough and I left with a plan!
Dr. Schaengold was wonderful. He addressed my concerns right away and then educated me about other possibilities. Instead of just focusing on what I was saying he listened to what was going on, asked additional questions and evaluated everything to help me understand not only the problem I came in for but also chronic issues I had been ignoring. I highly recommend his office.
Excellent care as always. Staff very accommodating.
Dr. Shaengold took considerable time to listen to my concerns, asked several probing questions to help determine the nature and cause of my symptoms,, diagnosed the cause, and provided several options and a recommendation for treatment. Overall, a very positive experience!
Spent appropriate time discussing the problem and described the options for treatment.
Excellent care. Very professional
Dr. Schaengold is a fantastic podiatrist - our whole family has seen him for various foot issues and he is always friendly, knowledgeable, and takes the time to get to know each patient. His staff is super friendly and goes out of their way to help you. I would highly recommend this practice.
I have gone to him for almost 15 yrs. I feel very comfortable with. would recommend him to anyone
Excellent Dr. and very helpful staff. I would highly recommend them!
Wish I had come sooner!
Been seeing Dr. Schaengold for over 18 years now. None are better. Has taken very good care of me and my family--our entire time living up here. Cannot recommend enough.
Very professional. He told me what he could and could not do to help me with great clarity so I could intelligently choose my best options for treatment.
As usual, Dr. Schaengold gets the highest marks. Dick and I appreciate and value his opinion regarding the best podiatry treatment. We would also like to mention that the office staff is friendly and professional.
Dr. Schaengold is just great. I've been going to see him for over 10 years on a regular basis for one problem or another with my feet. He has also performed surgery on one foot to remove a bunion. Dr. Schaengold has helped me tremendously. Some of my issues have been/are corns, calluses, Morton's Neuroma, and arthritis. He saved me from surgery with a unique procedure on my left foot due to bone on bone arthritis. I would never consider seeing anyone else and highly recommend him.
Easy parking, they see you right away, spend time with you. I had some surgery in my foot and he did a great job. Very little down time.
He provided me sound options. And did what he could within the context of the appointment
Dr. Schaengold spent the needed time to help educate, give us options, and listen to our concerns - more than any other doctor has done before. Thank you!
I've been coming to see Dr. Schaengold for a few years now. He has a nice office, nice staff and I always get in right on time which I really appreciate. Dr. Schaengold is really nice and personable as well as very competent. I really enjoy my visits with him.
He was very helpful, thorough, and caring. He made sure I understood everything and took the time to make sure I was okay.
Great experience. I told the office assistant that doctor visits are rarely enjoyable, but this one was. Higly recommend!
Every 3-5 months I see Dr Schaengold because my right foot is killing me, I leave 20 minutes later, painless. He is very professional but has that "old friend" kind of personality.
Super friendly staff. Clear agreeable plan from Schaengold.
What a kind office. We were met with a smile, and the office staff looked through our paperwork and spoke to my daughter to get to know her. I like that because I drive and pay the bills, but but 16 year old with the injury is better suited to tell them what happened. The doctor was Great! He was careful when examining her ankle, and explained all the tests he was doing (she in in sports medicine and knew what he was testing for and the names of the tendons). He understands athletes and their passion for their sport. My volleyball player liked him and so did I.
This man knows what he is doing, and has an excellent chair-side manner!
The doctor is thorough and takes his time to make an accurate diagnosis. He tries conservative treatments before jumping to something intense, such as surgery. He is friendly and personable and his passion for the practice is apparent :) Highly recommend.
Dr. Schaengold is GREAT!!! He took time explaining what the best solution would be for my situation. I would recommend him to my family and friends.

This is our first time to visit a DPM office. My daughter is the patient who complaining her heel pain for a couple of days. I actually saw this clinic in my neighborhood long time ago. Just never have the need. Dr. Schaengold is very friendly and professional. He gave us all possible treatments and information. I would love to recommend my friends if they need to see a podiatrist.
Fast, friendly and professional office.
Dr Schaengold described all of my options very professionally and suggested sugery was the last option. I felt I received a great education on my issues and information for proper remedies going forward. If I choose surgery I will go into it with realistic expectations.
he was frank and businesslike and informative. would trust him.
Very pleasant visit, treatment and explanation. Fine young man.
Took the time to discuss all the options and the pricing options on the treatment.
Dr Schaengold is the best. I have been seeing him for years to treat various foot ailments and his treatments are always spot on. He is diligent and thorough. I highly recommend him to new patients.
Can't recommend Dr. Schaengold highly enough. Superior level of care. He takes his time and provides great advice.
The office staff is amazing and the doctor is outstanding. I highly recommend this practice.
Dr. Schaengold was very thorough in his examination and treatment of issues I had with my feet. He offered solutions to my problems and explained the procedures to both my husband and me. I did not feel rushed through my appointment. At some point in time I may need some minor surgery and am confident in Dr Schaengold's abilities for a positive outcome. The office staff were friendly, competent and helpful and I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.
He's an Awesome Foot Doctor!!!
The visit was for my daughter's foot who recently had a surgery with another foot dr. He was very good and attentive. He explain everything that I needed to know and was very friendly and professional. I believe we just found a excellent person for foot problem.
Great Dr, staff was awesome. Glad to have him in the neighborhood.
I found Dr. Schaengold to be very knowledgeable and helpful. He took time to explain my problem and my foot pain was gone right away.
Seemed like just what I needed, no more, no less. I like that. The doc answered my questions, explained things well and went right to work. I felt better before I left the office! He also suggested some options going forward. And the staff was pleasant, helpful and prompt.
He is ALWAYS kind, fast, professional, patient and highly knowledgable...Couldn't recommend him with more enthusiasm!
He did and excellent job and made me feel at ease.
Thorough. Professional. Friendly. Good manners. Listened and checked out my foot thoroughly and told me all the possible causes and solutions. I would recommend Dr. Schaengold.
He is a great podiatrist, I highly recommend him!
Good evaluation, and solid recommendations.
My visit went smooth, my questions were answered, I received new helpful information, and I left with my foot feeling better.
I enjoy my appointments with Dr. Schaengold. He's personable, takes time to ask questions to understand my symptoms. The orthotics he provided are great, and when I went in to have them checked, he led me to have them rebuilt rather than remade.
It was great.
Overall a good visit. Dr Howard explained the condition and options very clearly. I had a lot of questions and every one of them was answered to my satisfaction.
Great listener and problem solver. Dr. Schaengold is a great podiatrist and is very friendly with wonderful compassion. I highly recommend him!!!!
The appointment was what i expected I have been a patient of his for serval years and wouldn't think of going to any one else he listens to you and makes you a part of the decision process, I have recommended him in the past and will do so in the future. He is a goog guy
Fantastic appointment. Dr. Schaengold and his staff are top notch. I would highly recommend.
He cares greatly about his patients, absolutely the best!! :-D:-)
I used to go to Dr. Schaengold years ago for plantar faciiatis. We moved away, came back recently. After my daughter got Horrible/ very wrong diagnosis from a different doctor, I took her to Dr. S. He got to the problem, relieved it and gave her instructions to follow. Thank god we went to him, if she had waited much longer the infection would have been so bad she would not have been able to walk right for some time. Skip Swedish, go directly to Plateau Foot and Ankle!
Dr. Schaengold really takes the time to explain what he sees and all the options for treatment. He never makes you feel he is in a hurry. He made sure I had all the information about my condition before I left.
Dr offered suggestions as well as alternatives to surgery unfortunately I will need an out patient procedure :-(
Terrible. Spent a significant amount of chair time talking about himself. No delay in the waiting area, probably not very busy there. While doing a procedure, he caused me pain and was initially totally insensitive to and dismissive about my discomfort. Some effort to explain diagnosis, etc. went on far too long, extended into nonrelevant information, segued into other foot problems and possible causes and treatments, and on and on without any such questions from me. He appeared nervous without sound command of management of my problem. Not definitive in treatment. Left much of treatment decision up to me, without offering a clinically experienced opinion.
He is fabulous. I've been going to Dr. Schaengold for years and would never consider seeing anyone else. He is a wonderful person and an excellent doctor. He has helped me so much. I would, and do, highly recommend him.
Excellent. He's like an artist when he works! while he worked we had amiable conversations on subjects we both like. This took the worry out of what was going on. Very pleasant office visit. And also, his receptionist is the best!
Dr. Schaengold was kind enough to spend unscheduled time going over multiple foot problems which were not part of the initial appointment. We basically discussed 20 years of athletic injuries and various procedures for correcting them. I wish I'd met with him ages ago!
Very personable and thorough. I felt well taken care of.
Dr Howard was able to answer questions for me that nobody else has been able to do. Most other doctors have told me to deal with my issues but Dr howard gave solutions, i'm very pleased.
Dr. Schaengold is very likeable and easy to talk to and he is very gentle and supportive if there is even the slightest discomfort involved in any treatment. Most importantly, he is well trained and you can be assured his assessment and treatment are well thought out and effective.
Dr Schaengold, made me feel comfortable in discussing my problem with my foot. Took a conservative approach to the solution for resolving the pain but also knew how to determine what the problem was, the remedies for resolving the problem and what would be the next step in solving the problem
Dr. Schaengold is great to work with. He is careful, helpful and interesting to talk to.
Professional and caring.
He's very professional and friendly.
The doctor was very thorough with me and gave me many different options and solutions!
