January 20, 2014 Quick appointment, attractive environment, friendly staff and excellent care! I would highly recommend.

December, 30, 2013 My husbands toenails were gross. They were thick, yellow and sharp. Occasionally he would let me dremel his toe nail down and smooth them enough to not jab me when our feet touched in bed. After 20 years of complaining, he finally got them taken care of, now they are smooth and thinner. I like touching his feet at night now. When I saw my toe nail starting to get discolored, I knew what I needed to do. I didn’t know fungus caused that much problems. I probably got it during a spa pedicure. I’ve had this before but alcohol wouldn’t work this time. So, couple of shots with the laser I should be good as new. I’m staying away from spa pedicures for awhile.

April 9, 2013 Our experience today was very pleasant. The entire staff was extremely friendly and caring. The doctors were very knowledgeable. Dr. Gadson took an in depth history and provided excellent care. Whenever we are in need of any foot / leg treatment we won’t hesitate to come back. Thank you for our sincere care. B.A.

April 4, 2013 I was looking for a podiatrist that would speak Spanish so I would feel more comfortable…and I’m glad Dr. Marieli Colon. She was honest, has a lot of knowledge, and made me feel very comfortable. Joylynn Q.

March 6, 2013 I am a police officer so I am constantly on my feet all day. I am running after individuals and constantly putting weight on my feet. After running after a perpetrator on one evening I tore my achilles’ tendon. Having to be on my feet all day I was very concerned that I would not be able to perform my everyday duties. I visited American Foot and Leg Specialist to receive treatment for my injury. My doctor is Dr. Loren Colon, who went over my options with different procedures and Dr. Colon suggest that I go with PRP procedure. I was very happy with the service that I received from the first time I walked into the office as well as the procedure. The procedure was by far the right choice for me and had me back on my feet in a quick manner. Dr. Colon and his nursing staff have been nothing but help to me through the whole process and have been there for me every step of the way. I am not from Georgia so when it was hard for me to choose a doctor knowing that the future of my career depended on it. I am so very happy that I chose American Foot and Leg and that I had Dr. Colon as my primary physician. If someone would come to me and ask for my recommendation I would highly recommend American Foot and Leg. My future was in their hands and they have gone above and beyond to ensure that I get back on the streets and I thank them for that. B.M.

February 27, 2013 I am a retired Army Officer with over 27 years of service, I continue my physical fitness routines after I left the Army. Recently I developed a low level pain in the arch of my left foot after running; that soon became Chronic to the point I was actually limping everywhere I went. I was diagnosed by Dr Loren Colon with Plantar Fasciitis. I did not find relief in using conventional ice compresses and stretching exercises so Dr Colon suggested PRP, (Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy). I must say the results are above what my expectations were. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Colon and his whole staff for providing me this amazing healing experience. Your friendly and informative manner provided me with viable options beyond learning to live with pain in my advancing years. The PRP procedure you performed was painless and has resulted in significant improvement in my foot; to painless walking after workouts. As you know, when I first consulted you, I was in considerable pain and had very limited mobility in walking. The post painless procedure itself was quite tolerable and I appreciated your concern for my comfort as well as the clear description you offered about all aspects of this procedure. I admit I was unconvinced that I had to leave my foot elevated for several days after the operation, but I dutifully followed your instructions and in retrospect I am glad I did. I had the procedure on the 27th of December (my 59th birthday no less) and here it less than two months later (the 23rd of February) and I am walking my dog with my wife in the neighborhood again without experiencing pain afterwards. Thank you again for your attention and care. I am very grateful. Respectfully, -AC, Major, US Army, (ret)

June 4, 2012 I have been a patient of Dr. Praya Mam for about 3 years now. I am a diabetic and my endocrinologist had wanted me to start seeing a podiatrist and gave me a list of doctors. I chose American Foot & Leg Specialists and then set up an appointment with Dr. Mam, a decision to this day that I have not regretted. Early last year, Dr. Mam was treating me for a diabetic ulcer on my right big toe. In April, 2011, I went out of town. During my vacation, somehow my ulcer got infected and by the end of my trip it was severely infected. I did try to treat it myself with antibiotic ointment and iodine. When I got back home, I made an emergency appointment to see Dr. Mam. Over several months the infection kept coming and going. Dr. Mam wanted to do surgery, but I kept holding off. He kept wanting me to stay completely off my foot several weeks to see if the ulcer would heal or do possible surgery. At this time, this was not possible. My company was being bought out by another company and if I went out with surgery or stayed out for a lengthy amount of time, I might not have had a job to come back to. Dr. Mam, God Bless him! He tried everything under the sun in altering me different type of surgical shoes to wear. Then on a Monday-at the end of July, my toe was not getting better and Dr. Mam finally said “I’m admitting you to the hospital and I’m going to do surgery”. I didn’t argue. I went in to the hospital prepared to lose my toe. While in the hospital (being off my feet) the ulcer on my big toe healed but the little one on the next toe started to develop. Dr. Mam went ahead and did the surgery. He cleaned out any infection that might have still been in my big toe and any that was in the next. toe. I woke up in recovery and still had my toe and was doing really well. I went back to work in September and was doing well until the end of October, I had developed a blood blister on my toe. Since I had a wheel chair, Dr. Mam let me go back to work. I did well through the holidays. I had my last follow up visit May 22nd, 2012 and according to Dr. Mam I am doing “extremely well”. Dr. Mam has been my HERO and my Guardian Angel this past year and will continue to be. He holds a special place in my heart. I know I made decisions that Dr. Mam was not happy with (he kept shaking his head) but he respected the reason why. To that I am eternally grateful. To this day I have never regretted the day I made my first appointment that day 3 years ago. Sincerely, – ET
