Our Patients

"I love Dr. Sklar for fixing my once awful feet! I had bunions that inhibited me from wearing gym shoes comfortably and I barely allowed them to see the light of day because I was ashamed for anyone to see them. Now, I am into gym shoes and no longer hiding my feet while in sandals. There is no other foot doctor I would trust, thanks Dr. Sklar!"

~ Troyah Reddick, Bunion

"Dr. Sklar was my third opinion for my surgery and after the consultation I knew I was where I belonged! So thankful that I found Foot First and their extremely friendly and knowledgable staff!! I highly recommend them...if you haven't figured that out!!"

~ Jane Ruser, Bunion

"Great work Dr. Sklar fixing my hammer toe and bunion. I am an avid runner but Dr. Sklar said to set my sights low for the first year. So 9 - months later I ran a 2:02:39 1/2 marathon @ 58 years old. Highest praise for great work and recovery."
