After Dr. Russell, he read the result that I was carrying from another Dr. I had gone before, He do not try to give myself other options and he referred me directly with Dr. Michael Banh for he could evaluate meto do a surgery and with Dr. Michael Banh his attention was totally different because he took his time to explain and evaluate my feet first and then give me different alternatives before I got to make a decision to do a surgery on my feet and finally I feel much better with his attention and with the professionalism that Dr. Michael Banh took care of me

He was very informative and answered all of my questions. Hisstaff are very professional and kind as well. I would definitely recommend him as your Podiatrist!

Dr. Russell Samofal was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, very thorough and precise. He accurately made a diagnosis of what I was specifically requesting to be seen for and was so excellent at breaking it down to simple terms, so that I knewwhat exactly the issue was and answered any questions I had accurately. He went above and beyond by noticing something I didn't even realize was a podiatry issue and was willing to go out of his way to check if my insurance covered something specific that would help my foot heal faster and make walking easier. Changed insurance to one that Dr. Russell takes although, he seems to take most insurances! I have and will continue to recommend him!

I switched from another podiatrist because I no longer work near his office, and I wish I had switched to Dr. Samofal years ago! He was so much more thorough, caring and professional than my previous podiatrist and the same treatmentthat hurt tremendously at my previous doctor's office did not hurt one bit when Dr. Samofal provided it. In addition, his staff was kind and extremely efficient. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone who needs a podiatrist.

Dr. Samofal is incredibly personable and patient, and he is very generous with his time when with patients. He seems very well educated in his specialty and will not let you leave until he's answered all your questions thoroughly. If you'rein need a podiatrist who is determined to get to the root of the your problem and not simply patch you up well enough so he can move on to the next patient, Dr. Samofal is your guy.
