1st: the LVN was exceptional! Listened; asked appropriate questions and made responses; Intelligent. Soft caresses when having to touch my rt foot which always seems to have pain even just to skin, let alone any need to manipulate it. Probably one of the best nurses l have met in years! SUGGESTION: If BSW has an in-house advancement educational program, she needs to be referred! Not trying to be rude/judgemental, but she IS RN material. She is really an asset.Dr. Battles was one of the best drs l have met so far at this clinic. He made an attempt to really understand my presenting problem complete with hx. I am thankful for him and his treatment plan.

My experience was very good. Dr. Battles was very nice and made me feel he was genuinely concerned about the issues with my feet.Special thanks to the nurse who was concerned about my ability to breathe and move around that day. The 2nd nurse that came in to assist me was also friendly, nice and helpful. They made my doctors visit very good and relaxing. My experience was a definitely a 10.

Dr. Battles is a rockstar ! After my mom having had a previous appt with him and the outstanding time and care he took with her, I knew, this was the podiatrist I would like to have on board. His concern and genuine interest was immeasurable to me as I had reservations as to if this was surgery I could move forward safely with. His initial response was yes, this was something he could correct as long as I rec'd clearance from my heart and vascular dr's. I knew immediately this was a surgeon in whom I could put my trust in. And he has not disappoint! He has promptly been added to my select list of superior S&W healthcare providers.

This particular doctor spends time reviewing my chart prior to the visit, has a wonderful bedside manner, doesn't allow himself to seem rushed, though he is, and even offered up immediate solutions to a new problem, and acted on them, which provided significant relief. I have also run into him, without his knowledge, I'm the community, and he is well liked by service people and is seemingly optimistic, happy and funny outside the hospital setting. I've also run into two people, I have no idea who they are - perfect strangers, and Dr. Battles performed surgery on both of them and they were very happy.

I came in with extreme pain due to an ingrown toe nail. He was very attentive and was able to cut out the problem. He also recalled my having seen him 6 years prior. I plan to continue seeing him. However it was rather difficult to get an appointment since there weren't any openings or over two months. my daughter and I drove to the clinic and my daughter pleaded for an appointment that wasn't two months in the future.
