Verified Patient Reviews
I got bunion surgery on both feet, two weeks apart, and Dr. Loninger was very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. The surgery wasn't painful at all and post-operation, I was told to text the doctor if I had any questions/concerns while recovering at home. I'm still healing and waiting to recover fully, but Dr. Loninger and the entire office staff has been very pleasant and helpful throughout the entire process. Highly recommend!
He's great to the point
Honestly, I've never gone to a Doctor before and left saying "wow I need to tell my friends about this guy." But that was exactly my experience with Dr. Loninger. I've had those torturous ingrown toenail procedures done at least 3 times in the past 10 years and they were all just that, torturous. But with Dr. Loninger it was PAINLESS! and very fast too. If you want to cure your ingrown toenail, and you don't want to go through the standard painful long procedure trust me PLEASE check out Dr. Loninger, you'll be grateful.
He is just amazing i seen doctor loninger for my ingrowing toe nails which i had on both of my feet first off to start he went step by step about what he was gonna do which i couldn't find a doctor to do in such a long time he also told me that he will be giving me sedation which was the best thing ever it honestly felt like i had 2 glasses of wine i was able to hold a conversation with the doctors in the room the nurses are amazing and carter to your needs i just wanna take the time to thank Dr.Loninger for all he has done for me he is truly someone i would refer my family to and who ever that was that left such a horrible comment your not happy with yourself to know him is to love him i knew i was gonna have my work done with him the moment i seen him
Summary: great podiatrist! I usually don't write reviews, but after seeing that the only written review was extremely negative, I'd just like to discuss my positive experiences with Dr. Loninger (2 procedures - both ingrown toenails) as well as feedback to the negative comment I saw. In regard to the idea of being pressured to use anesthesia during the procedure, this is not true. During the initial consultation he explained that I could receive just a local anesthetic or the IV anesthetic. While he certainly recommended the IV treatment, it was purely for my benefit as a patient. I had been putting of treatment for a couple months for my first ingrown toenail because of the fear of pain from the procedure. Knowing that it would not be a painful experience certainly put my mind at ease. During the procedure, there's a professional anesthesiologist in the room and I did not feel anything the entire time (I was also conscious enough to have some fun conversation with the doctors and nurses). After the procedure I was helped into my socks and shoes and was able to go to work immediately after. Was in the office at 11:00 and in a taxi by ~12:00. No pain the day of or the days following. Just remember to wear sneakers or a looser fitting shoe the day of the procedure since you'll have bandages on. Dr. Loninger is great and I will continue to go to him if I have any more foot problems in the future. Thanks!
