Our Patients Love Our Gentle Approach.
The result was night and day! I was so pleased. Dr. Szypczak has a calm, patient and reassuring manner. She removed the part of the toenail the first podiatrist had left behind (nearly a third of the ingrown edge) including the part beyond the lower cuticle!
The whole procedure was painless, as was my toe a day later. This time it hasn’t bled since the first bandage was replaced, not has it hurt in the 6 days since the procedure! She was wonderful! I even went dancing before the first week was up! I would recommend Dr. Szypczak to anyone. She is very skilled and wonderful!!
Dr. Rehm is one of the most understanding and kind physicians I have ever had. Over the years he has been so helpful in my medical care.
I highly recommend this practice. The staff was very friendly, fast and efficient. The office is in a good location with easy parking. Dr. Tom Rehm took the time to throughly explain the issues that have been causing my foot pain and gave me good instructions on the actions to help correct it.
Dr Rehm did a very thorough and effective job, explaining everything to me, and listened to what I had to say. His assistant, Allie, is very capable and skilled, as well as warm and easy to interact with. Good experience all the way through, from scheduling to checkout.
The culture at every level of Appalachian Foot & Ankle Associates is outstanding with regard to friendliness, professionalism, and receptivity to patient concerns. Arlene took my call and arranged a prompt evaluation as a new patient. Nursing care was excellent. I was seen promptly by Dr. Szypczak who has an excellent bedside manner. Her history and physical examination were thorough. She is careful and gentle. The operative procedure was completely painless.Instructions for care and follow-up were clearly explained. My care was outstanding.
After a terrible experience with a different Podiatrist, I went to Appalachian Foot and Ankle for a second opinion. Not only did Dr. Szypczak conduct herself in the most professional manner, her and her staff were cordial, understanding, accommodating, and were able to get me in the same day. I highly recommend this practice. I personally don’t read 5-star reviews for fear of the review being solicited, however this practice is certainly 5-star worthy and I look forward to seeing them in the future until my foot & ankle are healed.
After spending thousands of dollars since 2015 to address pain in my big toes, I finally found a podiatrist who has the skills to permanently remove my nail plates/matrices. Previous doctors tried removing portions of the nails and used phenol to make it a “permanent” thing, but none of them were successful. These procedures led to horribly dysfunctional nails that continued to grow in abnormal ways. Two podiatrists denied my pleas to remove the entire nail once and for all on both toes; they said I’d regret the aesthetic later on. Nope–no vanity here! Years of pain and the unpleasant/debilitating process of going through the surgeries (albeit minor in the grand scheme of medicine) will all be behind me, thanks to Dr. Jennifer R. Szypczak at Appalachian Foot & Ankle. I highly recommend visiting this practice if you want aggressive solutions to long-term issues.
