Dr. Assili scared the hell out of me this winter. He diagnosed me with "posterior tibial tendon dysfunction." He wrote this diagnosis on a prescription pad page and handed it to me. He didn't explain to me anything about the condition. He simply stated that I had come "just in time." He encouraged me to buy Superfeet shoe inserts that he sold in his office and to come back in a month for orthodics fitting. I bought the inserts.

I googled "posterior tibial tendon dysfunction" when I got home. Everything that I read frightened me. I subsequently saw two podiatrists this winter and spring. One works in a teaching hospital and trains podiatrists. Both podiatrists said that my tendon was "tight." Neither would venture to say that I had "posterior tibial tendon dysfunction." I simply had tendonitis that has now been effectively treated.

I didn't return to Dr. Assili for the orthodics, in part, because I was suspicious that he took unnecessary x-rays of my feet. Literature on the internet suggests that my hunch was right. X-rays are not needed for a diagnosis of posterior tibial tendon dysfunction.

I suggest to anyone that visits this doctor, or any other doctor, to ask questions. Know the basis for a diagnosis and the ramifications of the diagnosis before you leave the office.

First, I should say, I am very particular when it comes to medical care of my family. I was so happy when I found Dr. Assili. Dr. Assili is a terrific podiatrist. My family and I, love him. My daughter (9) and son (5) both saw him for different issues- intoeing and flat feet. He has worked wonders for them. He was also so wonderful and warm with my kids. My husband saw Dr. Assili soon after my kids for some issues he had with his feet and he feels so much better after Dr. Assili's treatment. I would recommend him to everyone!

I broke my foot in 2004 and was suffering with arthritis after the accident. I had been suffering for years. I saw Dr. Assili in 2008 and he diagnosed my condition and offered both conservative care and surgery. He suggested I attempt conservative care prior to considering surgery. I did get some relief, but ultimately surgery was the only definitive option. I had a fusion of the arthritic joint. The surgery was complicated but went well as did my rehab. I'm very happy with Dr. Assili's approach and attention to detail. I have only great things to say about him and his staff. I also saw Dr. Footer for one of my visits. He's also a very attentive Dr. with a great reputation. I recommend both dr.'s without reservation.

I had surgery for an arthritis of my foot. Specifically, I had a lot of pain when walking and Dr. Assili diagnosed me with "hallux rigidus." He performed a joint implant on my foot. My foot feels brand new...I couldn't be happier with his skill, knowledge and friendly nature.

Had re-visional bunion surgery by Dr. Assili. He's thoughtful and an excellent surgeon. He corrected the previous surgeons work and made my foot look and feel wonderful.

Exceptional physician and staff.
Had ankle surgery that went incredibly well.
Had been suffering with ankle pain for 6 years and had seen several doctors. Dr. Assili diagnosed a defect in my ankle joint. He performed a scope of my ankle...and I've been great since!!

Great Doc. Took Care of me and my family.
Saved my Dad's foot after he developed a bone infection,
and fixed my sister's ankle after a volleyball injury.
Very personable and highly trained.
