I went to Podiatry Associates this afternoon. It was my first trip there.they have a good amount of parking space considering how terrible a time it is parking downtown Birmingham.They get you in quickly. response time is better than the usual medical offices.Dr Russel was great. Good bedside manner. Keeps this light yet professional.I had an ingrown toe nail on both sides of my big toe. It was all simple and precise. Check out was simple.Paperwork wasn’t pages and pages long. It wasn’t redundant like most places.Looking forward to going again next week to have my other toe on the other foot!!!

Dr. Russell is a great guy. I definitely love his singing and the music. He made me feel so comfortable, both times. He is very gentle. He promised that I wouldn’t feel anything, and I didn’t.

Outstanding experience. Picked this office because we could get our son in quickly. They open early and stay late.. We struck gold. dr Russell was prompt , thorough and has the most amazing bed side manner. He made my 14 yr old son so comfortable that he seemed to actually enjoy getting his foot worked on. Dr Russell,keep up the great work. Your kind , fun loving bedside manner and thorough workmanship is greatly appreciated!!

Dr. Russell is a skilled and caring podiatrist. He listens very well. He goes out of his way to make sure that he doesn’t cause pain and that his treatment will reduce to even eliminate your existing pain. He is totally honest and truthful, yet very compassionate. I am so thrilled to have found Dr. Russell. I thank the Lord for Dr. Russell.

Dr. Russell is friendly and likes to talk. He is knowledgeable about foot problems. However, he spends so much time talking he usually runs late. My last appointment I waited an hour and left, am looking for a more efficient podiatrist.
