"He was recommended to me by a member of our Yacht club who had a wonderful experience with him. The entire orthopedic institute is outstanding. They use the Tampa General Hospital and" their infection rate is very low. He did an outstanding job and took great care. The hospital and practice are outstanding as well.

"Dr. Saffman was very thorough and treated me with respect. I liked the fact that he prefers to see the patient first, prior to viewing x-rays in order to assess my feet. He examined" me a lot more thoroughly than my previous Dr. who is/was a prominent foot & ankle orthopedic surgeon. My experience there for beginning to end didn't make me feel like another number, but a person. Dr. Saffman identified my previous surgeries and told me that he'll take the time to examine the x-rays & CT scans I brought w/ me from yrs ago to compare then & now. Since my last surgery in 2007, I was very reluctant to see a foot doctor again. Dr. Saffman put my mind to ease and realizes the value & trust of the patient-doctor relationship and communication that will yield patient success. My previous Dr. failed to understand that.

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

Hi,

 

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

 

It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.

 

Thanks again!

Dr. and staff very helpful. Follow up visit went well. With medicine, there are fewer episodes of gout. Only issue is he wouldn't provide blood results over the phone. Had to return for another office visit to get results. Overall pleased with everything and pain is gone!

I had bad ankle pain to the point I could hardly walk on the foot. It was determined that the ligament was torn and needed repair. From the moment I met Dr
Sacramento Plantar Fasciitis Provider Name Locked
I knew I was in good hands. He has a great bedside manner and explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. He maked sure I was part of the decision process and that I was at ease with the surgery that was to come.
After the Surgery he would call (not his staff) to make sure things were going ok. Post Op visits were great and he once again made me feel at ease and part of the decision process.
I would highly recommend him to anyone with food or ankle issues. I wish more Doctors were like him!!

I usually see him in his satellite office in Tolland. His main office is in Norwich. Initially his treatment was ok but in the long run he may have actually caused damaged that required me to have surgery. I was laid up for over seven weeks. I was recommended to him through a physical therapist. He was always punctual for the appointments.

This date (

I have a fairly specific condition that not all orthopedic doctors are sharp enough to pick up right away as he did. I was mis-diagnosed with a local orthopedic surgeon and I think if I had walked on my foot for another month my foot would have been amputated. Dr.
Sacramento Plantar Fasciitis Provider Name Locked
put my feet in a cast and I was in the cast for 8 months. He would remove the cast every two weeks and he saved my foot. He is an excellent physician. He is very patient at explaining what is going on and makes sure I am very clear about what the procedure is and why he is doing it. He is not just in and out. He is very thorough. A couple of times when I had some problem with the foot he said not to come in and stand there but he will come to me and that was wonderful. I see him a couple of times in a month. I can’t get over as to how punctual he is. I go in there and if I have a 10.0 clock appointment and I am there few minutes early for check in and I get in right at 10.0 clock, I

I broke my ankle at work and it was a workers comp injury. I did NOT want surgery but considered it if needed. Dr
Sacramento Plantar Fasciitis Provider Name Locked
was awesome and gave me my options ~ she stated sometimes the type of injury I suffered requires surgery and sometimes it doesn't she gave me my options and I opted out of surgery and wait and see if it healed correctly and it did......without surgery. She had a great personality and is a terrific doctor.

The experience started off O.K. but in the end did not go well.
I brought my 14 year old son in for a VERY minor grade 1 ankle

I asked Dr.
Sacramento Plantar Fasciitis Provider Name Locked
if the x-

equipment was digital and he told me it was. When my son camehome he told me Dr.
Sacramento Plantar Fasciitis Provider Name Locked
gave him 7 x-rays which totaled 8 views. Dr.
Sacramento Plantar Fasciitis Provider Name Locked
took x-rays of both feet. I called his officeimmediately as I was upset. This was not what I had agreed to as the
Sacramento Plantar Fasciitis Provider Name Locked
was so minor. The receptionist told meDr.

takes multiple views of children in both ankles even if only one is injured to check growth plates. I was upsetbecause this is not was told to me by Dr.

. I do know that I have excellent insurance and the x-rays added considerablyto the bill.
When I questioned Dr.

in one conversation he admitted to taking x-rays for all sprains regardless of the severity. He said he liked to cover himself. In another conversation Dr.

told me he didn't x-

all sprains.
I later found out the x-
Sacramento Plantar Fasciitis Provider Name Locked
equipment used was not digital radiography but instead computed radiography. This equipment can actually produce up to 10 percent more radiation than the older, traditional x-
Sacramento Plantar Fasciitis Provider Name Locked
equipment.
The office was not responsive to my questions or concerns. The inconsistencies were concerning on many levels.I do not believe anyone especially children should be given unnecessary tests. I do not like being told one thing as a parentof a minor and later finding out that a different treatment had occurred.
I will never return to this office.
