"My entire experience with Dr. La Russa has been just wonderful. He and his entire staff are extremely caring and efficient. When I found out I had to have foot surgery for my ingrown nail, I was terrified. I have never had surgery before, but the doctor made me very comfortable and his staff helped me calm down. After a speedy recovery, all of my foot pain is gone. I was treated with the best care at Family Foot & Ankle Center. I would recommend Dr. La Russa and his staff to anyone in need foot care."

"At first I was at first a little apprehensive about bunion surgery. Even though it caused me a great deal of pain to walk, I was hesitant about having surgery. However, after meeting the entire team at Family Foor & Ankle Center, I felt completely at ease with having the surgery performed. Dr. La Russa explained everything to me and it felt good to know what was going on. From the initial x-rays, through the operation and each physical therapy session, I always felt comfortable and calm. The staff here really cares about their patients. It has now been close to a year since my procedure and I'm happy to say that I'm fully recovered. I can dance and hike and run again! Hats off to Dr. La Russa and his talented team."

"As a runner I was none too thrilled about my Achilles injury. But thanks to Dr. La Russa I am really recovering well. I ran a half marathon last weekend in 1 hour 48 minutes and 19 seconds! I am very happy about the fact that I was able to run it and in a better than expected time. A hundred thank yous."
