Dr. D’Ortone was kind gentle, and very informative. He explained everything he did during my examination. Although I ama bit worried about upcoming surgery, I do feel confident in the doctor’s expertise and I’m not too stressed out about it.

He started out treating my daughter (then a ballet student) and then myself. It’s been over 20 years and now I travel from the suburbs because I’ve found no one as competent and trustable.

Approach was not a good fit for me. Seemed exasperated explaining what he thought I was dealing with, and annoyed with me for not knowing medical terminology. I'm not a podiatrist! Just did not feel listened to or treated with respect.

Booked the appt a day in advance for a 7am (1st appt of the day). The receptionist opened the door for me at 6:55am and let me in and Dr. O'Ortone saw me by 7:05. He was friendly, caring and informative. Gave me the therapy I needed for my plantar fasciitis and suggested a schedule a follow-up visit within a week. The scheduling was easy and treatment was superb. I would highly recommend Dr. O'Ortone for anyone who is experiencing foot issues.

Dr D'Ortone is an amazing guy and podiatrist. Gave me plenty of recommendations for OTC orthotics (my insurance doesn't cover custom inserts) and diagnosed a possible melanoma on my foot - all while being very personable and funny. He's former lacrosse player, too!

Dr. D'Ortone is a very professional doctor, who took the time to thoroughly explain everything to me. He spent a great amount of time with me since this was my first appointment with him and made sure to address all questions I had and performed a full and thorough assessment. Also, his receptionist was very kind and spent a great amount of time in figuring out my insurance coverage for me. I would highly suggest his office to friends.
