Working with Dr. Carlis has been a great experience! The Valley Foot and ankle staff are friendly, professional and efficient. Dr Carlis is very knowledgeable and goes out of his way to make certain I understand his analysis and recommendedpath of treatment. I am planning a surgery with him this fall and have no reservations about the procedure, recovery and outcome.

Dr. Scott was kind and talked to me rather than at me. Gave me choices for treatments, and I did not feel pressured. They did suggest buy custom shoe inserts from them, but it was due to my insurance rolling overat the end of the year, and trying to take advantage of my out of pocket max already being reached. I didn't do it, but I should have.

Scott and his team were so pleasant and sincere. I've struggled with Planter Fasciitis for 6 years. This was the first visit where a doctor actually listened to all my concerns then helped me determine the best course action. Dr. Carlis will be my doctor going forward.

The whole staff made sure to introduce themselves and made sure I understood all that was happening. I waited only a few minutes before they took me back into a room. They were all friendly and courteous making you want tocome back! I highly recommend this place. The doctor also took the time to explain what I needed and when I should follow up.

Simple ingrown nail which was dealt with efficiently and quickly in one visit and a follow up where the wound was cleared of dead tissue, relatively painless. Not sure how much was saved or spent for the procedure vs other clinics so price shop if your curious.

We were late arriving due to road construction. I called ahead to alert them and when I arrived they accommodated us right away. Highly professional and welcoming atmosphere. Dr. Carlis took the time to ask questions and listen to mine. Headdressed all of our concerns and provided us with what my daughter needed to do immediately and long term. His assisstant was very helpful. It was a very successful visit.

I can't recall visiting a better organized medical practice. I came in a few minutes early, they processed the paperwork immediately and walked me back exactly on time. Dr. Carlis brings both a great bedside manner and subject knowledge. I willcome back and have already recommended this practice to friends and colleagues.
