I was not guided well enough about the pricing at all. I told them I was self paying so they should have guided me through the various options and a recommend treatment plan. Doctor was nice and professional, but my personal needs were not asked for and guided thereafter.

Dr. Larka is incredible. She is personable and did everything to ensure my tendency to faint was avoided and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I actually enjoyed our conversation as well it wasn't just a distraction from the procedure. Shehandled the situation and my delicate psych with doctor visits very well and even taught me a breathing technique to avoid it in the future. If I have any foot or ankle issues in the future, she is no doubt the doctor I will see.

Ulla is always straight to the point and offers the best remedies to solve your problem. She lets you make the choice regarding your treatment and will tell you if you've made the wrong one. I especially appreciate that the lastoption is surgery. She works diligently with you to avoid surgery unless it's absolutely the last resort. I also like it that she has lots of stories to tell that keeps the conversation interesting throughout the visit! Ulla takes a personal interest in her patients and their issues and I'm very confident that she will get me back to normal as soon as she possibly can!

Dr. Larka and staff were unbelievably patient-friendly. I had a painful experience at my previous podiatrist. Once I explained this to Dr. Larka, she and her staff went above and beyond to make my visit less painful. Dr. Larka has agreat bedside manner. Not a doc who does a quick exam and then leaves. She spent a lot of time educating me and helping me understand everything I need to do to expedite my healing process. Great doctor and staff. Highly recommend.

She gave me several options to improve my problem, and was helpful even when Ihad to ask her to repeat things. She told me things to watch out for when I go to the pharmacy and told me how much I should be paying. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
