Dr. D'Ortone was very pleasant and his staff was excellent. I didn't feel like he gave me specific answers for what might be wrong with my foot, though.
I very happy. I am so great full and appreciated for the services and everything. I highly recommend him to anyone who has a foot problem. I had been visit three different foot dr before. None of like Dr Kennet. Thank you.
he is thorough and professional. excellent results!
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.
Awesome Doctor and staff. Highly recommend

Very professional as well as personable. Felt that I could rely on his help. Was a very positive visit.
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.

Staff was very courteous and attentive. I was pleased that the doctor reviewed my options for surgery; he did not frighten me with any urgency for the procedure. Dr D'Ortone suggested that I take the time to think about this before committing. He even suggested getting a second professional opinion and / or another consultation with him.
Our visit was wonderful. My mother, who is almost 100, was not looking forward to the visit. But by the time we left, she was telling every one how much she liked him. Made the prospect of going back much easier for me.
the wait time was a bit long, but I made the appointment the night before, so that might've had something to do with it. I was really impressed with how kind and helpful everyone in the practice was. Dr D himself was great. Hopefully I don't keep having too much foot pain, but if I do, I'll certainly be going back to Dr. D again.
Dr. Ken was very thorough and helpful carving out additional time and care going beyond expectations.

It was quite enjoyable.
Exceeded my expectations. Dr. D'ortone is like no other podiatrist. Professional yet sincerely concerned for his patients. The atmosphere is clean and cozy. He also offers Spa treatments to help soothe your aches and pains. He also provides expert medical advice. I've never been to board certified podiatrist that also has a wholistic approach to care. I have referred people and they are as happy as I am!

Dr. D'Ortone was the best podiatrist I've ever gone to. I only went in to the have my nails clipped, but he gave me a thorough examination, explained things thoroughly and clearly and did a fine job clipping the nails. His two-person staff couldn't have been more welcoming.

So far as a doctor he seemed to show knowledge, caring and concern. This is my first visit but I liked him thus far.
He was very knowledgeable
Dr. D'Ortone is a true professional and a great podiatrist. I saw him about an issue having seen someone else previously and will definitely be coming back to see him again.
Dr, D'Ortone is one of Philadelphia's best foot and ankle doctors. I saw him after other doctors at a large downtown practice were not able to stop the pain in my heel from plantar fasciitis and seemed only concerned with selling orthodics even if they didn't work. By comparison, Dr, D'Ortone seemed more concerned with doing the correct treatment. He spends a lot of time with you and explains the issues. He doesn't focus narrowly in the complaint but explains how each part of the foot is important in the treatment of this condition. I highly recommend him.
This was my first visit and I plan to go again. Everything went very well. Staff in the office were very pleasant and courteous.
excellent explanation of problem; felt received understanding and professional care
Dr. D'Ortone is one of the most informative and personable doctors I've ever been to. You can tell he truly cares about his patients and is willing to explain all potential injuries/solutions to the injury Highly recommended.

Very professional. He also talked to me 'on my level' so that I understood my condition.
Dr. D'ortone is an extremely smart, helpful, and nice doctor. He was so sincere, and truly wants to educate you about your feet/problems. Was very very thorough, and takes his time, great x-ray machines that are digital, and instant which helps with time. However, the office is not clean at all,very messy, that could use a BIG makeover, and some sanitizer. Overall, I would go back.
