Podiatry reviews in Charlottesville

    Murray, Dr. Kevin P.
    Problem dealt with expeditiously and professionally. I had to encourage a more detailed explanation By Dr. Chang.
    Better than any previous experience with many local podiatrists with my wife.

    I like him a lot. I can't say I disliked anything about him. I thought they were very efficient and he was very attentive. I didn't have anything serious wrong with me. He looked at my feet and said yeah, you do have the beginnings of bunions. He helped me out and gave me orthotics that have worked well.
    The staff was fine but they made orthotics for me that they got wrong the first time and right the second time. Partly because they didn't believe me. I'm a really, really small size and they said no way, there's no way you can be that small, then they had to go back and change it.

    I arrived for surgery at 11:00am and was home by 2:30pm.  The surgery lasted 10 minutes.  Dr. Stewart was very nice and I followed up as I was supposed to do a few days later.  Things seemed to be healing well.  I called his office though about 10 days after the surgery to complain of cramping in my calf muscle.  I spoke to the nurse who said it was nothing and did not hear from Dr. Stewart.  It turned out to be blood clots and because it was left untreated I ended up in the ER with them in my leg and both lungs.  Ooops.  Not so swift.  While the surgery seems to have helped, it's left me with a series of health problems I might not have had had I seen a physician rather than I podiatrist.  Dr. Stewart was always sympathetic, concerned, and also wanted to do whatever he could, but in the end, he's not a medical doctor.  And that is my mistake.

    I had been seeing Dr. Stewart since November 2010 for a cyst on the bottom of my foot.  In November, x-rays were made and he told me  that I had fallen arches and need inserts.  He also put  a support brace on my foot with the hope the cyst would go away on its own.   That brace cost me $125 which my insurance (UVA) would not cover.
    During the period between November and March, he convinced me to be fitted for inserts which set me back another $400 plus.  It turned out these inserts only will fit into tennis shoes. When I questioned him about it, he acted surprised. 
    Dr. Stewart talked about performing surgery on the cyst but in March he decided to do an injection into the cyst to break it up.  Within a week my cyst was gone.  My only regret is that I was in pain for 4 months before he did something that alleviated the pain.   Also, he told me that the company that made my inserts could make me another pair that was suitable for work and dress for $350.
    Don't be gullible like me.  I believe I could have been helped in 3 visits instead of the 7 it took.

    I agreed to the surgery on 10/19/2009.  Xrays taken in follow up visits indicated one of the 2 screws inserted to keep the bone together while it healed had backed out.or loosened.  Even after several more visits the bone did not appear to be healing together.  A sharp pain continued for months. The one screw was apparently still loose keeping the bone from healing.  From the xrays taken it appeared that one screw was too long or inserted in an angle that may have made it interfere with the bone in the toe next to it.   The pain continued through March without relief.  More xrays and an MRI still showed one screw was still appaently loose.  I kept suspecting that the screw was loose becuase it was hitting the adjacent toe bone every time I tried to walk.  Finally the Dr. Stewert gave up on me.  Literally he just said there was nothing he could do.  I told him I was going to get a second opinion and he agreed.  Dr. Baglio took his own xrays and thought the screw was engaging the adjacent toe bone.  He decided it best to remove the screws, use a bone growth stimulator, and get me into PT.  Dr. Stewert agreed with Dr. Baglio to "throw the kitchen sink" at it.  I gave Dr. Stewert the opportunity to come up to the plate and take responsibility for the error and redo the surgery himself.  He refused so I went to Dr. Baglio.  Dr. Baglio took xrays while I was on the operating table and felt it was clear that the one screw was interfering with the adjacent toe bone.   Several months later I was able to walk again.  There is still pain sometimes and I do not run. 

    In the end I simply asked for Dr. Stewert to repay my out of pocket expenses.   His lawyer said he met the "standard of care" and will not give me anything. 

    I am not a doctor, but all I can say is beware. There are plenty of other foot doctors in town.  I recommend getting two or more opinions before surgery on your feet.  You really need them for walking.

    Baglio, Dr. Robert J
    I think I was the youngest patient by 20 years in the waiting room. I waited 20 minutes to be seen by his partner and Dr. Baglio was brought in to consult on the weight-bearing x-rays performed in the office.
    Baglio confirmed I had a lisfranc fracture. He took the time to explain the type of injury and the severity of it. I was fitted with a bulky air cast to be used at all times, including while I slept.
    Dr. Baglio immediately recommended that he perform surgery on my foot - including screws, washers and wires. He told me it needed to happen as soon as possible to avoid arthritis pain, etc. I was told that if we did not operate I would most definitely have early-onset arthritis in my foot and would possibly be in an air cast or boot for several months. I was told that if we operated quickly, then I could delay the onset of arthritis and be walking on it in 6-8 weeks post-op. As far as podiatrists go, he is supposedly the best of the bunch in Cville.
    However, I did not have confidence that I would be able to return to my full level of activity post-op - 10-15 miles of running, 3+ hours of dance, and 2-3+ hours of weight training per week. We did not discuss the risks associated with all of the hardware he was proposing even though I did ask what the benefit would be to adding all of this hardware into my foot. I did not feel fully heard or fully informed when I left. I felt a sense of urgency to surgically alter my foot but wasn't sure what it would mean for my activity level afterward.
    I decided to seek a second opinion and ultimately switched to an orthopaedist for treatment.

    My overall experience with Dr. Chang and his staff was great. I would go back with no hesitation for future foot or ankle problems. The orthotics have been wonderful and I feel like I have so much more support than I ever have with any inserts that I have purchased. I have only been wearing them for about a month- maybe a little less- but they can last up to 10 years so I didn't mind making the investment to avoid future problems. I would highly recommend them to anyone with foot and ankle problems but especially sports injuries. They were great!
