Patient Reviews

Overall Rating

The first time I saw Dr Fabrikant I had been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis by two Drs. I was in a lot of pain and I had done everything the Drs had advised me to do ( ice, stretching etc). I tried a third dr since I wasn't getting better. Dr Fab did an ultrasound on my heal and told me I had a bone spur in my heel. I had surgery and was pain free. I just had surgery for another bone spur on my other foot and am on my way to being pain free again. I highly recommend Dr Fabrikant!!

It was an in-grown toe-nail that caused me to seek out help from a doctor. Not life-threatening but it sure hurt and was traumatic to me. Dr. Fabrikant's office made an immediate appointment for me, which was a relief. Their website contained the "new patient" forms I would need and I was even able to fax these over before ever going to the office. On arrival I signed in and was greeted warmly by the staff. I was barely a few pages into a 'People' magazine when I was taken back by the medical assistant, who was kind and professional. I'd been in doctor's offices before so I knew to take my magazine with me for the waiting game but I didn't need it! Dr. Fabrikant came in immediately and performed his examination. I was going to need a minor surgical-like procedure, which was done in the office right then and there. The doctor explained exactly what he was going to do and what I should expect. There was very little pain and I felt immediate relief from the in-grown toenail symptoms. I was asked to return in a week for a follow-up, which I did, and I encountered all the same professionalism and quick treatment (without that feeling of being rushed in and rushed out). Thank you Dr. Fabrikant and staff.

I went to go see the the Dr Fabrikant a issue with my foot. I found Dr Fabrikant through a providers list. I an glad I made the appointment. Most doctor want to give you a lot of pills and just make a lot of appointment for you. Well not Dr Fabrikant. He heard what my problem was look at my foot and the x-rays and then talk to me about what the course of treatment is to help my foot out. Now I can walk again with out help. And the best then of all I ride also. I would send all of my friends to see him that would have any foot issue at all.
