I was hesitant about seeing a podiatrist but after meeting the Dr Harland I was very happy at the results of his treatment, ez to talk and very elegant and clean office. The patients that greeted front desk, Amber, were happyto see her and greeted her by name. That tells me that they like coming to see the doctors there and after leaving Amber thanked patients by name when they left. I'm relieved I chose the right podiatrist for my treatment and thanks Dr Harlan! I already gave out Dr. Harlan's name to a few of my friends!!

Very pleased with Dr. HARLAN and his staff., the level of detail provided about my assessment and the treatment methods was excellent. I appreciate his conservative approach at progressively trying different levels of care, so as to not goto extremes when it is not warranted. I recommended him to my coworkers as soon as I returned to the office after my appointment.
