I wish every doctor provided the kind ,compassionate and knowlegable care I recieved from dr weisenfeld. after seeing several other doctors I finally found one that was able to treat me and get me feeling better in no time
She took the time to explain everything and I left feeling I was in good hands
Look no further this is the podiatrist you need to see

She doesn't have patience to explain my condition. She yelled at me and it's not the first time, when I asked her a question.
I better find another doctor.

I have limped around in and out of pain with the orthotics that Dr. Weisenfeld said I needed for my Plantar Faciatis. I didnt return to her since I became unsure that she was able to help. My new doctor seems great so far and we are getting new orthotics made. His opinion is that the orthotics she custom made for me were either mixed up with others or never molded for my foot. My arch features do not match the orthotics she sold me in any way. In addition, the orthotics "custom" made for me are made of carbon fiber and are so hard that they caused me to sprain my arch and or tendons twice. My new doctor says that this material is only used for the correction of childrens feet and that it should not have been given to me to imporove the comfort of my running. I cant believe that she is practicing if this is the case.

If I could give 0 stars I would. I went in for a bunionette surgery and it went downhill from there. She sliced my pink bone (fifth metatarsal) and stuck a temporary pin. 4 weeks after surgery went in for x-rays and prognosis was not good. Bone not fusing and she did not show me the x-rays. Just told me healing was not going as she had expected. Not only that, she asked me if I was a slow healer. I was in a lot of pain and she pushed me to walk right away. She is very unsympathetic, often talks down to you and often make you feel inadequate. After several weeks, she pushes the bone stimulator which cost me over $1200. That did nothing!!!! Then she wanted to "fix me up". Hell no. After talking to 2 orthopedic surgeons and 1 podiatrists the bone stimulator in my case was useless.

To make a long story short I ended up going to the HSS (the best orthopedic hospital around). I was by horrified by my x-rays. My pinky toe is permanently shorter than my other toe, and she butchered my bone in such away that I ended up with another surgery with a metal plate and 5 screws. I find out from my new doctor (who is an absolute blessing) that Dr. Weisenfeld should not have prescribed ibuprofen (it is a known fact that it slows bone healing). Also, my foot should of been stabilized right after my 1st surgery. There were a lot of other things Dr. Weisenfeld neglected to do for post-op care. Due to her negligence and lack of up to date knowledge, I have waisted 6 months of my life handicapped from this experience. Please stay away, she is a total scam and just wants more money.

For those of you who are looking to do bunion or buinonette surgery, go to a doctor that has updated techniques. Now a days they don't cut the fifth bone because there is a 50% chance of the bone healing. They now use lasers to shave the protruding bone for conservative treatment.

I went to her office with heel pain. She took x-rays of my foot, and they told me I had heel spurs. She never showed me my x-rays, she just went into telling me about the most expensive ways to treat it. First she started with custom insoles, which run up to $400/pair, and then at my pressing, worked her way down to a $100 plastic boot to wear at night. She never mentioned anything about whether these things would be covered by insurance, and they are not! Out in the waiting room, there was a sales rep for these products, who started pushing them on me. She suggested that they could sign me up for a "women-in-need" program, which might pay for these products - HER sales products! That doesn't even fit my financial situation, so they were suggesting that I participate in this fraud! It's just amazing how this rampant abuse goes on.
