Patient Review

Lea Minyard

Finally, a Dr. that actually listened to all of my concerns. I was very nervous due to a bad experience with a previous Podiatrist. I found the office staff to be polite and personable. Dr. Oji took the time to listen and answer all of my questions. The shots were painless. ????. I did not feel rushed.
