The staff and doctor are friendly and professional. My appointment times worked with my schedule. I had a very satisfactory outcome and was very pleased with my overall experience.
Honestly, I couldn't say enough good things about Dr. Kinscherff and the nurses. I was so embarrassed about my ingrown toe nail, but they didn't even flinch. They went out of their way to help me get everything handled. Extremely nice people work there, I am so happy I finally went in to get it fixed!
Easy to schedule an appointment to have ingrown toenails removed. Friendly staff. Dr. Aquino has a great bedside manner.
I have come to The Foot Health Center for many years. I have never been disappointed. Everyone is wonderful to work with. Dr. Aquino is wonderful!!!! He has treated me for some difficult problems, and I always end up with no pain or continuing problems.
