Dr. David was exceptional in performing my two surgeries and the follow up care over both post-surgery periods. The staff at Foot and Ankle Specialists and the Walker Surgical Center were tremendous. I couldn’t ask for a better experience.
I had a consultation with Dr. Michael David for possible laser treatment for toenail fungus. I was very impressed both with Dr. David’s knowledge as well as his bedside manner. He took a sample of the nail and underlying tissue to determine if it is fungus so I can decide whether or not to proceed with the treatment (important to me, as it is not covered by insurance). In cutting back the nail for the sample, he also (at least temporarily) cured the constant dull pain I’ve had in that toe for many years, and I am very appreciative. I highly recommend both Dr. David as well as Foot and Ankle Specialists!
I was so pleased with my experience at Foot and Ankle Specialists. The staff is so helpful and pleasant. Dr. Michael David was the best. I had bunion surgery. People say that it’s such a painful surgery. I disagree. I had no pain. Healing went well, right on schedule. Dr. David is right on. I highly recommend him. Great foot surgeon. Thank you to Dr. Michael David.
