What Our Clients Say About Us

    My first ingrown toenail hurt fir about 2 months before I came to see Dr. Lorry the first time. He and his staff took great care of me.The second time I had an ingrown toenail, I didn't wait a day to see Dr. Lorry! I am a competitive tennis player and my feet are very important to me because they are my "wheels", without my "wheels" I cannot play tennis and this is why I value what Dr. Lorry and his staff has done for me. I will definitely be back for all my podiatric needs!

    I developed a little plantar wart while training for a triathalon. It was on the ball of my foot and felt like a pebble in my shoe. I first went to the dermatologist and had it burned off. That didn't work so another trip to the dermatologist and I tried triple acid that had to be applied with a cotton ball in the morning and evening-it hurt and still not results! I surfed the net and found Dr. Melnick- after ONE, painless treatment, it was gone and I was running again! Thank you Dr. Melnick, you are the best! I am so grateful!

    I struggled with a plantar wart for years, enduring several "freezing treatments". One treatment here and it was GONE! Great office, great doctor and great results!


    I had heard terrible things about bunion surgery; the pain, long recovery and limited activity...my pain prior to the surgery was much more significant than it was during recovery! In fact, I made it through without pain pills, only ibuprophen. That was a sign of great doctor and surgeon. My surgery was 12 weeks ago and my foot feels great! I'm back to my aerobic exercises, 3-mile walks and even hiking. I have no regrets, only a great deal of gratitude for Dr. Melnick and his entire team. You are wonderful!

    I saw the doctor for a strained plantar. I am a marathon runner and my goal was to start my training up again as soon as possible! After a few weeks of ultrasound treatments and orthotics, I am back to running again with NO pain! I have never tried orthotics before and now I am a BELIEVER!! My plan is to run the Boston Marathon next year and because of this place that will be possible! I am so grateful!
