Dr Royer has operated on both of my feet for a period over 8-9 years. He also operates on my daughter and my son has seen him several friends have been referred. He has saved 1 foot and this last surgery hopefully will correct the other. I will go to no other but him.

Every time I have come in to see this provider, he and his staff have been very courteous, and he takes the time to answer my questions without making me feel rushed. I marked the question on wait time as good rather than very good. Normally, the wait time is very good. Only one time was the wait time a little long. Over all, I am very pleased with the service of this provider and his staff.

Dr Royer and his staff are exceptional. Unfortunately, my recent injury is resulting in some significant nerve pain and discomfort. However, post visit, the staff have been extremely supportive in following up and providing medication and support. I would not go anywhere else for serious foot injuries.

Dr. Royer is personable and knowledgeable. He provides descriptions of what to expect, without too much detail, which would have deterred my decision to take care if myself.

Dr. Royer is a world-class surgeon. He salvaged my foot and helped me to walk again. On top of that, he has an impeccable bedside manner. He and his staff work extremely well together to provide compassionate care to his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Royer to my friends and family because I have never had a bad experience with him or any of his staff.
