"This review is long overdue, as it has been three years since I had simultaneous surgery on the bilateral hallux and second phalanx performed by Dr. Hallivis. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience from the initial consult to the postoperative visit and suture removal. He takes pride in his work and is competent, knowledgeable, efficient, polite, kind, and down-to-earth. He explained thoroughly the problem, the course of action, and the expected outcome. I will continue to recommend Dr. Hallivis first, for those seeking all manner of foot correction." - Hana R.
“Dr. Pontell went above and beyond any care I've ever had. He was very proactive about my treatment plan and monitored me during my recovery like no other doctor ever has. His expertise in the field surpassed all of my expectations.” - Amy D.
