    Cullen, Dr. Richard W
    I have seen him several times and I liked the results. He is very personable. He is quite interested and his care has relieved me of the symptoms. The staff is very good.

    New England Medical Fitting
    The owner, Shirley Hanlon, generously gave of her time, on more than one occasion, to advise me, notwithstanding that no purchase was imminent. She is informed, professional, and compassionate; the latter quality is especially appreciated as the circumstances surrounding prosthetic choices, when related to reconstructive surgery, tend to be inherently distressing. The staff are similarly accommodating and a pleasure to deal with.

    BOSTON PEDORTHIC
    I have bought several pairs of orthotics from Boston Pedorthic over the years but I still use the original set that Eric made for me and they still keep my feet feeling good. (I own multiple pairs just for the convenience of being able to keep them in place in a number of different pairs of shoes.) I still use the same kind of shoes that I was originally sold -- I've bought several pairs of the sneakers online after my original purchase at Boston Pedorthic but I always buy the same kind because I know that the combination of the shoes and the orthotics keep me pain free. If you have foot pain, I highly recommend a visit to Boston Pedorthic.

    BOSTON PEDORTHIC
    I heard that pedorthics are better equipped to deal with orthotics than podiatrists, and this seems to be the highest-rated of the (few) local pedorthic facilities. In general, since pedorthic practitioners are not medical doctors, if there is something that might require medical attention, they have to refer you to a specialist. On the other hand, it seems that podiatrists actually *are* trained in the and quot;anatomy and bio-dynamics of the footand quot;, so they can deal with orthotics too (what a surprise!). I was told when making the appointment that the cost will be $187.50; turns out that and quot;assessmentand quot; (which is, of course, not covered by insurance) is billed at $125/hour and takes 1-1.5 hours. I was in early to deal with the paperwork; practitioner was half an hour late; no apologies from him or the staff. We spend half an hour going over the paperwork again; then I was informed of the and quot;assessmentand quot; rates and asked - repeatedly - if I really want one now - although that was the reason for my appointment. When I answered - repeatedly - that I do want one, it finally started - with the start time marked to include the half an hour spend going over the paperwork. The and quot;assessmentand quot; took 1.5 hours more, but when I was paying up, I was told to pay only for 1.5 hours and not for 2 hours, so I ended up paying what I was told I would :) All the appointments, people waiting for the appointments, show-shelves and the office are located in the same room. In addition to non-very-professional impression such lack of privacy made on me, there were some outright distractions and interruptions. Computerised gait analysis advertised on their web-site was not available: the machine doesn't work, and they don't do it any more anyways, since it is - in their words - just a marketing trick. No treadmill with cameras or any other technology was employed. and quot;Gait analysisand quot; was watching me walk back and forth a few times - which may well be all it really takes, for all I know. I was told that my gait is normal. The assessment *was* very thorough; a lot of papers were marked; I was told that they are now part of my and quot;clinical recordand quot;. I was also told that and quot;this is not just aboit orthotics, but the whole planand quot;; that and quot;we will work togetherand quot;, and lectured on the third law of Newton. When I asked for recommendation on sandals and a fit on the ones I had with me, I was told that we need to start by making custom inserts for me ($540 or some such), and make them work, and then we can talk about everything else. They do use digital scans: they make an impression of the foot using traditional (analog :)) techniques, and then scan it! At least in my case, all this $180 assessment did was allow me to order inserts for another $540. Now, it is possible that they are the best in the industry. Eric seemed sincere enough and really willing to help. He dissuaded me from buying $160 shoes from him, and advised me to buy new pair of what I wear for $80 elsewhere, which was nice. So it boils down to $720+ for a pair of custom orthotics. I since visited a podiatrist, who told me that my current orthotics (which Eric ignored completely) are fine structurally and seem to fit me well; that they can be refurbished for $45, and that this is what we should start from, and only if that doesn't work, we'll look into making new ones (in which case the price of refurbishing will be applied towards the price of making new ones). Since I am pretty sure that my podiatrist knows what he is doing at least as much as Boston Pedorthic, I think I'll go with him: although $180 I already paid will be completely wasted (again, in my case; maybe this assessment did help other people), at least I won't pay another $540 for something that I can have (equivalent of) for $45 :)

    Bond Shoe and Foot
    Bond Shoe in Stoneham offers shoes and custom orthotics for people with foot issues who need special foot ware and custom orthotics. I went there to get custom orthotic inserts for Plantar fasciitis which was making it painful to walk. I found the gentleman who owns and runs the store, Peter Bozovic, to be knowledgeable and experienced. That may be the only nice thing I can say about him and the woman who provides his administrative support. I asked if they accept insurance coverage, and they said they did. But they would not submit a claim until I paid in full for their product. I found them to be overpriced and their product to be inferior to other custom orthotics I have owned in the past. My health insurance did cover the price of $450, but they would only submit a check to the provider. It took many phone calls and visits before Bond reimbursed me for my original payment. The people there are rude, and unsympathetic to say the least. Their orthotics are overpriced for what they deliver. I will never go back to this store again. I highly recommend that anyone with foot problems go anywhere else before they go here.
