What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "The Reason why I came to see Doctor Theall was of my flat foot problem. This problem was affecting my life because I was having foot pain and my feet were really flat. Something that I could do now that I couldn’t do before was exercise without pain. Something’s that impressed me most about this office was the friendless and care that the doctor and stuff showed. The staff was very warm and caring and the service was on point and very helpful. Not only were they helpful I was also taken in on time for my appointment. The doctor helped me by showing me shows that will help me with my foot pain and he also gave me tips to help me suede the pain. I would recommend this Doctor to other people because he is not only very helpful but he addresses the issue in-depth."
    Brian H.
  • "I've been coming to Dr. Theall for 15 years plus every 6 weeks for routine foot care to take care of my nails and calluses. I originally had a problem walking with the pressure on my feet from calluses on my heel. Throughout the years I can walk better and experience less pain than before. My mother and I went to Dr. Feldman and was very unhappy with the care. He referred us to Dr.Theall and he accepted us with open arms as a patient."
