rude attitude, also asked Me to walk to another room without socks in my shoes which is unsafe and silly. Furthermore the procedure was done very rushed and I had to take a photo after.... when I asked other folks later when I showed them told me .. "no doctor would do that".... my heel was rough, very abrasive to touch and looked worst then before I arrived yet THE FISSURE WAS SHAVED BACK... yet the surround area was left with zero care or an attempt to make my walking pain and the heel more comfortable to walk and removed more skin.
