Foot Consultation
Today, Jan 16


Richard Loninger


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!
