Dr. Royer is the Best! He is kind, listens and comes up with a solution to the issue. If your recovery from surgery is taking longer then expected, Dr. Royer will find out why, solve the problem and get you back on the road to recovery. Highly recommend Dr. Royer!

I felt like this doctor did not have time for me or my issue. When I walked in, I was told I needed an x-ray of my foot - the x-ray tech took shots of my ankle, rather than my foot, but then there was no time to re-do images of the correct problem area. Now I feel like I am still walking around with a painful foot, despite stretched out shoes, and no where to go for it until my follow up in 2 months.
