I, along with several members of my family have been faithful patients of The Foot Institute for many years. My daughter resides in Calgary and has been treated by both Dr. Fitzner and Dr. Lehr and had her foot surgery done there. It went extremely well and she was back to work in just a few days and has not had any pain since. I have been treated by Dr. Mandal and Young in Edmonton over the years for numerous foot and related back problems and found their expertise and bedside manner exceptional.
They truly offer a 1st class service and although they are busy doctors they always answer my questions and have kept me in tiptop shape over the years. I highly recommend The Foot Institute.
I believe the Foot Institute is truly the best group of foot specialists you will find anywhere. I like the fact that I can be seen in Edmonton and then receive follow-up care in Red Deer or Grande Prairie (where I work from time to time). The doctors that I have seen (Dr. Young and Fitzner) are experts in their field and the only reason I am walking today, I give full credit to them.
I suppose the reason they are the largest group of foot doctors in Alberta and have thousands of patients is likely because they are among the best. Definitely give them a call and book your appointment with Dr. Young, Mandal or Fitzner.
I had pain in my back, knees and feet for years and went to many different specialists such as orthopedic surgeons, family doctors, chiropractors and could not get help anywhere. I then went to see Dr. Mandal at The Foot Institute and he prescribed orthotics as well as ESWT from their physiotherapist which he said would fix my problems. I was a little hesitant as I had had orthotics before from a chiropractor but Dr. Mandal explained the many differences (you get what you pay for) and said he would provide a money back refund if they did not work. They worked!!
I now understand there is a great difference in orthotics and would recommend anyone go see the experts at The Foot Institute. They are highly trained doctors and I have discovered that other professional know very little about the feet. Sometimes my service at The Foot Institute was a little slow but I guess that is because they are so popular and have so many patients. It is worth the wait as they truly stand behind their promises.
I was having a lot of problems associated with my foot. Mostly pain when standing or walking for too long periods of time. My wife finally convinced me to go and see Dr. Young at The Foot Institute. I'm glad to say it worked out extremely well. Dr. Young recommended orthotics, which after some getting used to, have helped considerably.
I am now able to be on my feet most of the day at work virtually pain free. I would highly recommend him to anyone out there who is hesitating in making that appointment – don't wait any longer!
