I've been seeing Dr. Royer since 2006. He is a fabulous orthopedic surgeon. He has given me a renewed life by the surgeries he performed to straighten my feet with ankle fusion. I will be forever grateful to him. I would recommend him to anyone needing a good foot surgeon. He is also a very genuine person who I am happy to know.
