I can't say enough good things about Dr. Hallivis and the staff. I received the best care both before surgery and throughout my recovery. Dr. Hallivis was down to earth and took his time explaining the procedure and expectant results. The entire staff was warm and caring. I'd recommend Dr. Hallivis to anyone in need of foot and ankle care. They are tops in my book.” - Fred G.
"After my athletic injury, I had met with several doctors in the Northern Virginia area… many were quick to diagnose, quick to jump into surgery, and quick to misdiagnose. Dr. Pontell not only examined my foot via MRI, Xray, Ultrasound and in person – he explained EVERYTHING to me... After completely healing, at 38 years old I can run longer, and run faster than I ever had been able to run before – even before my injury. I’m in the best shape of my life. I tell everyone all the time that I am able to do what I do because of him - my foot he reconstructed is a million times stronger than my uninjured foot." -A.D.
