Dr. Bednarz and his team did a thorough job of diagnosing the problem and provided resources and a handout to enable me to manage the condition more effectively. Follow-up procedures were clearly explained. I look forward to continued work with Dr. Bednarz and his team.

They were short staffed so the wait time was longer than normal. The doctor took very little time with us and did not give us any written instructions.

THANK YOU! Dr Bednarz is my new super hero! I honestly thought my PF pain was something I'd have to deal with forever and that I was done running. He prescribed me medicine and a simple PT plan. I started feeling better 3 days after my visit with him and it continued getting better every day. This morning is the 1st time in 15 months I got out of bed and had absolutely NO heal pain. I'm so friggin excited. I'll stay on the RX and PT plus stay away from the running for another month or so to make sure the PF is completely healed . YOU ARE AMAZING ! Thank you and God bless! Happy Thanksgiving!
