Liked the doctor very much. Liked the time, information, and explanation she provide me. Very friendly. I think the parking and location of the entrance is very poor for patients with foot and ankle pain. It was pouring rain aShow morend I could not rush around to the front door from the back parking limping. I see two back doors, (maybe a hallway to front could be provided) also grassy area on the side, maybe it could be converted for handicap. I am not in that bad of condition but I know some are. The parking is Just not proper for the specific specialized practice provided.
Prompt, I like the doctor Bethany Badell.She is caring,does not rush you and I feel good when I see her.She really explained my foot problem and taped it and a prescription for a pill which was a great healing.on my next visit sheShow more examined and talked about my recovery and suggested 2 helpfull treatments. Going to see her again.

I was completely satisfied that I received excellent care.
The doctor is great,but the technician did a half complete job. I had to do it myself when I got home . For example, the ends of my toenails were very sharp and the sides were not taken care of. I had to cut the ends off and file my toenails.
Friendly and professional. Exam was thorough and taught me many things about my feet!
