Editorial review from Citysearch 6/3/2013

Let me start by saying Dr. Ames came very highly recommended from a friend of mine. I paid her a visit because I'd been struggling to fight off some plantar fasciitis issues and wanted to get a professional opinion before I started exercising full-time again. The visit itself was passable (at best). Her bedside manner was average, but it took me multiple questions to get a detailed explanation from her, and she looked decidedly annoyed that I had to be explained anything in the first place. \r \r Beyond that, my true gripe comes from her prescribing for me an off-the-shelf ""orthotic"" night splint, which she said was covered by my insurance. Part of me is kicking myself for taking her at her word that it would be covered without getting pre-authorization from my insurance for said ""orthotic"" or without looking to see if I could get the splint cheaper elsewhere (it's $20 on amazon). A bigger part of me is just feels deceived based on the bill I received from Dr. Ames months later. The aforementioned ""orthotic"" was billed out at $300 to my insurance company (who passed the bill right on to me). Did I mention this splint is $20 on amazon? \r \r Worth mentioning is the fact that she also prescribed me a shoe insert which I could buy at a number of stores...which begs the question why wasn't there a similar recommendation or option for the splint? So, upon calling to inquire about either A) returning the splint or B) why this inexpensive, off-the-shelf item is marked up 1500%, Dr. Ames' office didn't have any answers. They couldn't even tell me where the $300 price tag came from. How does one run a practice and not know what one's charging? I'm still waiting on a call back from Dr. Ames herself to get some answers there (it's been 3 days and counting). I'll update this if anything is clarified.\r \r Ultimately this whole situation has completely turned me off to Dr. Ames. She may have come highly recommended, but I'd be doing the rest of the world a disservice if I didn't shed a little light on this seemingly greedy and inept part of her practice. And we wonder why the healthcare system is so flawed. more

Clean and caring. 11/8/2009

I have probably done 15 visits over the past 10 yrs. The place is simple and clean. Dr A looks after the issues and concerns of our family with care and quality attention. I have referred many friends her way over the years who have also been happy with the care they received. I saw the standard cleaning practices in use so I suspect that the other writer was a sales person who was miffed that her products where not purchased... Pros: She cares about our comfort and safety. Cons: I don't have any. more

No disinfectants? 7/13/2009

I called in prior to making an appointment to Ames Anne's to assure that they use disinfectants on the exam areas. This may sound loopy, but I have had a bad experience in the past at another facility. A young girl, I imagine he the secretary, said they ""are not interested in disinfectants."" I was utterly shocked and appalled of the girls response to me. I feel sorry for the patients that attend if she is indeed telling the truth about the sanitation of the office. Pros: I'm glad I ask Cons: Will not be going there more

Ames Anne DPM 9/25/2008

Very gentle and caring 4/30/2008

Dr. Ames was very gentle and caring when I took my daughter to see her (12 months at the time and still being treated for club foot, not a toe nail clipping, I cut my own daughter's toenails and would cut my mother's too if she needed it). We were very pleased with the experience and will definitely see her again. She's found her true calling as a podiatrist (far from shoeing horses). more

Very impersonal, mother had a painful experience 10/1/2007

I took my elderly mother to get her toenails trimmed,as she is a diabetic and can't do it herself.\r \r . Dr Ames was very rough and careless when she cut her toenails and afterwards my mother's toe was sore.. The Dr is supposed to buff the rough edges off ,but didn't. I wasn't in the room on the first appt ,but my mother told me she didn't want to go back,that the Dr was too rough. We thought MAYBE she was just having a bad day and so we went ahead and gave her another try a few months later. This time I stayed in the room. The Dr barely spoke to us and I could see how roughly and hurriedly she cut my mother's toenails .Needless to say,we found another podiatrist . Dr Ames missed her calling,she should be shoeing horses. At least they can kick her if she gets too rough. : ) Cons: worst podiatrist ever! more

Pleasant Experience 8/10/2006

Dr. Ames and the staff are great. She was very attentive to my aesthetic concerns (which is rare) and worked with me and lifestyle. It was a very pleasant experience. more
