Super friendly guy. Quick and efficient. Took time to not only treat but explain why and how it happened. He’s across town, (A 40 minute drive) but worth repeating the drive to see him.

The staff was super friendly and helpful upon entering the office. They were great at following up and sending reminders about the appointment. They were very clear and upfront about the process and payments so that there were not confusion.When Dr. Applegate came in he was super friendly and it was easy to have a conversation with. He was very relateable and knowledgeable. He runs on the conservative side when giving a diagnosis and is patient to answer all the questions you may have. If you have any questions or concerns he is willing to help talk with you about plans or implementations to make you feel comfortable to know what your next steps are. I highly recommend and am thankful that his first diagnosis is not to go straight to surgery but to find other solutions and alternatives and uses surgery as a last resort.

It was great - quick diagnosis with a thorough explanation of how to treat, along with non-intrusive options. I already felt relief from my heel pain that afternoon after utilizing the information and footwear provided. Wait time was approximately30 minutes but this was no problem and is expected in any medical practice. I was actually impressed that I was able to book an appointment online for the same day, and was in and out for my appointment in about an hour. The office is also very clean and welcoming. I would definitely recommend.
