I have always found the staff friendly and helpful. Dr Bergsma is excellent at explaining the issues and helping resolve them. He will tell you what to do to get better and expects you to do it, which I find awesome.
Dr. Bergsma and team are the absolute best! I have had two procedures done here and each step of the way, the staff have gone above and beyond expectations. They truly want to empower their patients and seek the absolute best option for desired services in great detail. Highly recommend!
All staff is very helpful and professional. Dr. Corwyn always knows what will work best for my foot pain. I highly recommend for foot and ankle problems.
