Dr. Phisitkul performed my foot surgery- from the initial visit to my final exam he was so kind, explained in detail what I could expect every step of way! He continued to see me after the surgery, wasn’t passed off to another person. Bobbie, his nurse, was the very best- so kind, respectful and very knowledgeable. The entire staff was the best! I can’t say enough of the great care I was given!
