This doctor is friendly and positive, listens well, and cuts my thick nails and removes my callus quickly and carefully. She also answers my questions - I do no feel rushed.

All the problems I had, skin turning dark, nails in very bad shape, constant pain, numbness ect was pretty much brushed off. The only thing the doctor suggested was lotion and diabetic shoes. I was worried that the darkness of my skin could mean circulation problems but she was not worried about it.

This was a total waste of my time. The Doctor seemed to be in a hurry to be somewhere else. I made the appointment because I had several areas that need care. Two of the areas will need surgery and she stated she wasn't a surgeon. She never once suggested a surgeon. She seemed more interest in locating a pair of shoes she felt I needed. Towards the end of the exam another female entered the room snd a couple minutes later they both left. I didn't even know the appointment was over!. I don't make Dr appointments unless I absolutely have to! And I have been treated at Cleveland clinic with great results! This just one of them. Maybe it was just a bad for the Dr. But I won't ask for her again.
