Hear from some of our patients:

I was impressed with the experience at the clinic.  No waiting, pleasant staff, and I really felt in the hands of professionals.


Dear Dr. Feilmeier,

A quick note of thanks for seeing me and diagnosing the problems I have with my feet. After 5+ years it seems I have found an answer to my situation… I appreciate the time you took with me and the students explaining what you think of my situation. You were pleasant and a true professional.

Sincerely, Grant B.

“I wanted to take the time to thank you for the incredible care we received this morning in the Foot and Ankle Clinic. I had to take my 15 year old son in for an infected toe and I was blown away by the time that was taken to listen to him, engage in conversation with him and not make us feel rushed. I know that kept him calm as well. As we left, he spoke highly of the student and Dr. Bennett and how they weren’t rushed and listened to him. As a parent, it was welcomed. Thank you for taking the time this morning, we both appreciated it.”

Sincerely, Erin
