ABOUT THE TEAM
We develop trust with our patients because we are honest and straightforward with them. The level and quality of podiatry care we provide and the communication we offer is outstanding. The best thing we bring to our patients is listening to them.Our team is like a family.
One of our patients recently came in and anxiously told us he’d had a bad podiatry experience as a child, but felt his fear was really irrational. We told him that it’s truly a very real fear, and the fact that we understood and just listened to him helped him past his distress. He tentatively walked back to the treatment room, where he sat down in the chair began to listen our soothing music. By the time Dr. Pulapak came in he was relaxed, talking and laughing with all of us. We really enjoy recounting stories like that. Our caring and compassionate attitude shows our patients just how special we think they are.
