First, I have never needed to go to a Podiatrist. Fortunately for me, this was my first experience. I came to the office a little early. The Staff greeted me when I came in, I needed to fill in some paperwork,and very quickly I was in the room with Dr. Branch's nurse, who was looking at my foot issue and listening to my explanation. Dr. Branch came in a few moments later. He listened intently to my concerns and the story of my issue. He looked at my affected foot and immediately gave me his prognosis, asked for permission to perform a simple procedure, and started. As he performed the procedure he was telling me what he saw, what his opinion of the issue, and how to treat the work post excision of the area. Dr. Branch is a brilliant physician, who has a disarming personality that allows the patient to be completely comfortable/trusting with what he does. LISTEN to what he says. He is very thorough in his work and words. He is interested in you and he listens intently what you say to him. I live rather close to this office. If you have foot or ankle problems it is worth you time, effort, and money to see Dr. Branch at one of his many offices. He is very to the point, quick, knowledgeable as the day is long, tenacious in his skills, remarkably interested in the patient's good, and has a really dry humor to which you must pay attention if you want to get the punch line. I am very thankful that I chose Dr. Branch and his staff. You will be humbled by the amount of work Dr. Branch does and the cost was way below the effort of Staff and Dr. Branch's work to ensure you problem is solved or in the process of healing.

It was as painless as hesaid it would be. I resently moved to Georgia and will be encouraging my husband, my mom, and my sister to make Dr Branch there doctor as well. Thank You Dr. Branch for making my visit a good experience. I will definitely be back.

Upon walking up to the office, there was dog poop on the outside doormat. When I told the receptionist she said she knew but just hadn't picked it up yet... Upon waiting I. The waiting area, the receptionist asked a manwho was waiting also to kill a spider for her in the receptionist office. The man could barely walk but still did it for her. Then when I finally got to my room, I was told the doctor wasn't there yet but was on his way...... Definitely not a good experience. Won't be back.

Dr. Branch and his staff were great. Only complaint was the long wait, however Dr. Branch and his staff both apologized profusely and explained that it was due to several patients who required significantly more time to treat. I still highly recommend him.

Dr Palmer reviewed my x-rays right right after the assistant took them and interpreted them in a way that I could understand my condition (Hallux Rigidus - turf toe). He learned by background (engineer) and took the time to explain myoptions and time frames in a way that I could understand best and allowed me to ask detailed questions in a patient manner.
