Phil H, Falls Church Virginia: Might as well do my first podiatrist review. About a week ago, I detected a splinter or piece of glass in my foot. I run every day, so this started to get annoying. It is so freaking hard to see a specialist on short notice. I saw she had 3 good reviews here on yelp, she was convenient and I gave her a ring. She was booked solid for 2 weeks. Luckily she had a cancellation on Tuesday...so I got in there (from when I tried to book the previous Friday).
The paperwork was sent to my house over the weekend to complete early, including directions, if you needed them. The waiting room was clean and relaxing and the big bowl of candy awaited all would-be patients. I had to fill out one more form and about 10 minutes after my scheduled time I was whisked to the room.
She showed right up...asked me a few questions...and then started scraping at my splinter for about 5 or 6 minutes and chatting it up with me about the perils of flip flops, the dangers of not stretching before a run, and about the forthcoming arrival of her new baby....and by then the splinter was out and foot back to normal. She gave me two free samples of cream to put on the wound for about a week and didn't write me any unnecessary prescripions. My kind of gal.
Everything went great....if you need your foot examined....take it on in there.
Elena C, Arlington: I saw Dr. Smith today because I'd been having persistent pain in my foot that was keeping me from wearing my 4+ inch heels. I was pretty much expecting to be chastised for wearing such high heels, but instead Dr. Smith gave me great, realistic, practical advice about how to take care of my feet so that I can keep wearing the shoes that I love. She took the time to talk to me at length and answer all my questions. I especially appreciated that took an x-ray and explained to me exactly what she saw happening with my foot and what I could do to best address it. I would definitely recommend her!
