"The owner and staff are highly qualified. The owner of the business was a physical therapist for several years and knows body mechanics. For the first time my daughter was fitted with shoes that relieve her bone pain.

"I was having pain in my feet that was unresolved for over a year though I was seeing another podiatrist. Dr
was recommended to me by a physical therapist friend," and seeing the good reviews here I made an appointment. Dr
was able to give me affordable options for much more appropriate and correctly fitted orthotics. I have had great success with a pair he was able to fit me with in the office that day. I wish I had found him first, it would have saved me a bundle of money. I was so impressed with him and his office staff that I decided to take my young daughter to see him for her foot problems. He was able to come up with affordable options for getting the maximum correction for her feet. He is very conscious about trying to keep the cost to the patient low, but still give appropriate treatment.

was excellent! I had taken our son to another podiatrist who was okay with our son, but rude to me on a subsequent visit. Instead of explaining and answering" my questions, the other podiatrist was dismissive. Dr.
took time to examine his feet and answer questions. My concern was about possible juvenile bunions forming and shoes that might make it worse. Dr.
took time to discuss his foot growth and development and what he could wear. He has a very easy and relaxed manner and I cannot stress enough, he took his time to fully explain and answer my concerns. By the time we left I had complete peace of mind and felt comfortable with his advice. Soapbox warning: Doctor's, obviously (we would hope) know why they make the decisions they do, but if they can't explain ther rationale, I believe it can leave some patients unsure and second-guessing, like me. As more and more information is laid at our fingertips, I am afraid this is just becoming more and more the way it is between patients and dr.s. The days of just blindly accepting whatever the dr. says, is pretty much behind us. I understand this can be frustrating and annoying for dr.s who are used to being the gatekeepers of medical knowledge. I consider myself an educated person and I want my dr.s to educate me. I appreciate Dr.
respecting me enough to answer my questions. Our visit did not last beyond the usual time frame - I would say 15-20 minutes. Point being, when I say he took his time, I did not ask endless amounts of questions. He answered and explained thoroughly and professionally what I wanted and felt I needed to know in order to do my job as a parent. I cannot recommend Dr.
highly enough. Thank you Dr.

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?

Foot Care reviews in Oak Park


I would recommend him because I think he is really good in what he does. He worked really well with my foot. I have a problem with my toe and he operated, and he told me everything that he was going to do. I knew exactly what was going to happen. He followed up, and the therapy was good. The staff is wonderful, and it was just a very good experience with him. If I had a problem with my feet, he is the first person I would go to.
- TOM Q.

My visit went great. He's very nice and his entire staff is very friendly. I will continue to see him and would recommend him to others.
- lorraine M.

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.
- Norman M.

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.
- David C.

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!
- Ann H.

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
Oak Park 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!!
- Cheryl S.

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.
