I can't rave enough about Dr. Scheinin's outstanding skills and professionalism. Dr. Scheinin performed a bunionectomy on my right foot around May 2005. Prior to finding Dr. Scheinin I visited 2 other surgeons and thought living with the pain might be a better option. As a runner and aerobics instructor, I was very concern about mobility and being able to resume activity pain-free. Dr. Scheinin was patience and shared all the information I needed to make a decision about surgery. By following Dr. Scheinin's instructions I was able to return to full activity after allowing for proper healing. To this day, while running, weightlifting or just walking, I am never reminded that I had foot surgery. In addition, my shoe selection after surgery hasn't changed. Dr. Scheinin is truly excellent in his field in every aspect and highly recommended.
