Dr. Buffolino not only remedied my ailment, but she did so with great bedside manner. She explained what she was doing and why every step of the way. I had a little hiccup during my procedure (not at the fault ofthe Dr.) and she reacted quickly and appropriately to make sure I was okay. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a podiatrist in the RVC area!

Appointment was for toenail trimming for my wife (84 yr.) and myself (88 yr.) BUT but a toe accident had to be added at the last moment. This caused no problems; We were seen as soon as we arrived, and werein and out in less than an hour. Courtesy and promptness made the visit pleasant.

I recommend filling out the paperwork before coming (I didn't notice, otherwise I would have). Dr. Buffolino saw me right away after my paperwork was completed and thoroughly explained everything to me. I like that she has appointments at night.

The Doctor was nice and knowledgeable however she spent less then 5 minutes with me. She did explain things but in general it felt like she was rushed even though i was there very early. I will return but I would hope that could be improved
