Dr Panchdbavi is excellent. He is easy to talk to and a skilled surgeon as are his assistants.Oct 14,2019
I was concerned that this injury was more than a strain, as a previous athlete I'm well aware of how strain's feel and this feels more like a bone issue. I was hoping the physician would order his on x-rays/MRI to determine my issue for the x-rays that were taken at the emergency room were with my injured foot suspended in the air. My foot never hurt while being elevated/not used, it only hurt while standing on it. So the fact that he "poked" my foot and determined immeadiately that it was a strain, made me a bit uneasy. I just want to be sure that it is definitely a "strain" and nothing else. He dd request to see me 3 weeks after this visit.Oct 14,2019
Waiting time is much too long!Sep 23,2019
