Dr. Mwando seemed very knowledgeable about my issue. (I have two rapidly-growing bunions, one on each foot.) He was able to show me x-rays of each of my feet to help me better understand the problem with the way my bigtoe bones were growing, and though it certainly caught me off guard to have to anticipate surgery in my first visit, Dr. Mwando seemed to be very honest with me about what it would take to correct the bunions and eliminate my consistent pain and discomfort as a result - he went through the time I'd need to take off for each procedure/recovery, anticipated pain levels, long-term results, and even insurance specifics.

My visit John Mwando, DPM was excellent he was very professional and friendly. He has a warm smile which make you feel at ease. We discussed my issues thoroughly and even did the necessary X-rays on spot. He was very informativeand helped me resolved most my issues.. I will be returning to this office. FYI. It's a great office to go to because they also have chiropractors in the same office so incause you need one they are located in one spot..

Dr. Mwando's approach was one that was pleasant, helpful and very insightful. As a patient who was recently diagnosed with early onset diabetes, he took the time to explain to me how I can work with him to change this diagnosiswithin 6 months, if I were to follow his advice.He was knowledgeable and passionate about diabetes and how patients can take control of this disease. I truly appreciated him educating me on the challenges I am facing with my health, which is very rare in my experiences with health care professionals.

Sat waiting for awhile and receptionist never acknowledged me. Once I was waiting for 20 minutes and previous patient was running behind/ talking to receptionist, I finally asked if there was anything else I needed to fill out. Receptionistdidn't give me forms until after she was done with previous patient. Found this very inefficient.

Dr. Mwando has a very charismatic personality which makes his bedside manner very comforting. He is also very skilled and knowledgeable with his craft. I went to see him for a blistering fungal infection on my foot that a previous surgeonand separately, a dermatologist could not correctly diagnose and treat. Fast forward 2 whole months, discomfort and steadily growing weary about the situation, I finally found Dr. Mwando. He educated me about the problem, treated it immediately and prescribed the best cure for it. I saw results overnight! It's a few days since our initial appointment, and the infection is going away with the area healing quite nicely which very positively highlights his wound-specialist capabilities. Definitely book him. No disappointments. Seen immediately each time since my first appointment. Rapport, professionalism and desirable results are important to me, and Dr. Mwando lived up to my expectations. Thank you!

Dr. Mwando is a kind, patient, intelligent doctor. I was the last appointment of the day and he took his time examining the problem and discussing it in detail with me. The office is not super-fancy, but his skill makes up for the lackluster facility.
