Dr.Balloch was a great surgeon and she repaired my ankle after acquiring an infection that could have cost me my foot. Both Dr. Balloch and her office staff were top notch! Mindy was on top of scheduling all my appointments with the surgery, follow-up appointments and anything else I needed. I would highly recommend Dr. Balloch for foot or ankle surgery. Thank you again Dr. Balloch for giving me my mobility back! Rich MohnachView on Google
In visiting the office Dr. Butto of Advanced Foot & Ankle Specialists, I'd like to express my gratitude to the staff for providing me with excellent service, compassion and professionalism. The atmosphere from the minute you walk in, is what all medical offices standard of operation should require. Dr. Butto explained the her findings with my concerns of my feet/ankle pain. Having been treated elsewhere, it never occurred to me that my pain may be associated with another condition. Hopefully, we can get to the root cause of my pain. I highly recommend this practice.View on Google
