Dr. Leonora Fihman is a very competent, pleasant, trustworthy podiatrist who has treated me on two different occasions. When I need further podiatric care, I will definitely return to Dr. Fihman. Thank you for your excellent care and relieving a painful problem I no longer have.

Visit was great but at the very end the provider mentioned she doesn’t take my insurance after having received insurance 24 hours prior to appointment and again reviewing the insurance card before actually seeing me. Zoc Doc is also to blamehere for suggesting an appointment with thjs out of network provider.

She was very personable and I enjoyed her bedside manner. The prices are a bit steep and I don't like that you can not pay for your surgery with debit or credit and it must all be cash or check. Withthe FSA aT my job it makes it inconvenient.

Great first visit to Dr. Fihman! She explained everything very well and made the experience very comfortable. She is very experienced working with diabetics and diabetic foot issues. Going back in two weeks to get my orthotic insole.

Awesome visit -- she immediately diagnosed what was wrong (ingrown toenail) and took care of it within 10 minutes. She was very gentle, explained everything she was doing to me, and had fantastic bedside manner. A+!! Thanks Dr Fihman!

Dr. Fihman was great, I was a little worried but she was very gentle and professional. We turned a gross ingrown toenail into a nice neat tidy little bandaged toe! No more tears... hahaha. Here's your foot doctor, you may be seated now.

She was very nice, very helpful. Never rushed the appointment like so many doctors do. She took the time to explain everything and answered all my questions. She gave me different options to treat my problem, didn't push just one option.They conduct x-rays right in the office, so it saves time. All in all a very pleasant and efficient experience.

Dr. Fihman and her staff did a great job. I had to have a surgery done on my metatarsal joint. I'm still recovering, but the "scar" looks great and I'm feeling better every day. I can already tell that the painI had will be gone once the stiffness and inflammation from surgery subsides. Dr. Fihman paid special attention to the incision site to make sure it healed well with minimal scarring.

Excellent bed manners. I loved that she was completely focused on me as a patient and would give her full undivided attention when talking or when working. I couldn't be happier.

Dr. Fihman was the most thorough podiatrist I've seen out of the three I've seen over the years for my bunion issue. She was able to explain the underlying issue in conjunction with my bunions was my collapsed arches (flat feet).She described the procedures to correct the flat feet and bunions in addition to showing me an animation of the surgical procedure for bunion correction. The office staff was friendly and had my paperwork ready to sign when I walked into the office.

I am not the best patient and Dr. Fihman is so calming. She made me feel so relaxed and comfortable, even got a shot in my toe. Would highly recommend her.
