There was a mix up with my appointment and I was not scheduled for the day I arrived. However, the staff made sure I was able to be seen anyway. I had plantar fasciitis. Dr. Barkin explained everything to me thoroughly.I’m an athlete and I work on my feet all night, so his reassurance that it would get better was great. He measured my foot and took scans in order to provide custom insoles and, I don’t think I can ever live without them now! I even use them when I exercise and they have helped me improve a great deal with weight lifting. He does not rush you and he’s patient. He did not seem agitated with my many questions (and I ask a lot of questions). I highly recommend him.
