I would just like to say I had excellent service at this doctors office, first off the doctors are so nice, I had the pleasure of meeting all three handsome men, they all treated me with the utmost respect. The staff was outstanding, helpful, and frankly a great pleasure to talk to. Me, being the concerned citizen I am I was hurt by the comment that I saw below about the staff, the doctors, and the boss considering the family effect they have on all of the patients. I would just like to say that comment is slander, and if you take the time to click on that "Sam" you will see she has a negative outlook on life, and looks as if she is trying to scam money from companies. please, be kind rewind and take some time to appreciate this great staff. I would recommend this place to anyone!!!

Wonderful staff! Even if they are not able to help, they inform you of all options and direct you to where to go for help you are requesting. Thank you!!

I want to give Dr Joel and Dr Mark 5 star rating with there practice at Family Foot and Ankle. For the past 5 years a friend of mine was seeing other local foot doctors and the last resort was a pain support doctor who had figured out what he thought the issues were and gave a direction to follow. After all the issues figured out finally all systems were full steam ahead. Just want to give these 2 doctors 2 thumbs up. So now I'm seeing Dr Joel for my issues and also giving a 5 stars for great service and friendly atmosphere with this practice at Family Foot and Ankle and the staff here.. Thank you again for great service and will be coming back here for for years to come. Highly recommended
