First, I have never needed to go to a Podiatrist. Fortunately for me, this was my first experience. I came to the office a little early. The Staff greeted me when I came in, I needed to fill in some paperwork, and very quickly I was in the room with Dr. Branch's nurse, who was looking at my foot issue and listening to my explanation. Dr. Branch came in a few moments later. He listened intently to my concerns and the story of my issue. He looked at my affected foot and immediately gave me his prognosis, asked for permission to perform a simple procedure, and started. As he performed the procedure he was telling me what he saw, what his opinion of the issue, and how to treat the work post excision of the area.
Dr. Branch is a brilliant physician, who has a disarming personality that allows the patient to be completely comfortable/trusting with what he does. LISTEN to what he says. He is very thorough in his work and words. He is interested in you and he listens intently what you say to him.
I live rather close to this office. If you have foot or ankle problems it is worth you time, effort, and money to see Dr. Branch at one of his many offices. He is very to the point, quick, knowledgeable as the day is long, tenacious in his skills, remarkably interested in the patient's good, and has a really dry humor to which you must pay attention if you want to get the punch line. I am very thankful that I chose Dr. Branch and his staff. You will be humbled by the amount of work Dr. Branch does and the cost was way below the effort of Staff and Dr. Branch's work to ensure you problem is solved or in the process of healing.
