Patient Reviews

  • I was a patient of Dr. Cookus’s who retired and is replaced by Dr. Baldwin! I am super picky about foot doctors, I come from a family of them and Dr. Baldwin exceeded my expectations. I had to have several procedures done and during each one, he was detailed, made me feel super comfortable, took his time, made the experience super pleasant, all the while being funny, entertaining and kind. He answered all of my questions patiently and my feet are already feeling much better.

  • After going to my last podiatrist for many years and not being very happy with him, I decided to switch and got referred to Dr. Patel.  Just had my first two visits, and I had an xray, injection and a walking boot. Everything here is as it is supposed to be, clean beautiful office, I only waited a 30 minutes, I didn’t have any pain at all, everyone is kind, very professional, and good at what they do, especially Dr Patel. Excellent experience. Thank You!

  • I only started seeing Dr. James Baldwin this year but already I can’t say enough good things about him.  Not only is he a highly skilled and sensitive podiatrist, he’s also very personable, engaged, and has a fun sense of humor.  He takes his time, is attentive, explains everything he’s doing, and makes sure you are never uncomfortable.  How many people actually enjoy going to their podiatrist?  I do.  And, I should know…I’ve had two extensive foot surgeries done in the last few weeks!  Pain you’re wondering?  Very little.  Easy peasy.  The office is pretty and cheerful, the staff is terrific, professional and kind, and all the equipment is cutting edge so I know I’m getting state of the art treatment.  I feel very confident that I’m in good hands!
