What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "I have a bad ankle that causes extreme pain even when not walking on it, I have been to 2 orthopedic Drs, a pain management Dr. and my internist. The orthopedic doctors' solution was to have an ankle replacement or freeze the ankle. None of which was an option for me. I saw Dr, Afesllari 2 weeks ago and he recommended insoles to try 1st. I liked his approach of starting simple. My 2nd visit was yesterday, he reevaluated took x-rays and gave me a cortisone shot. I explained that I had previously had shots and they only worked for a few hours. He said it was an option to try again. When he gave me the shot, I told no one gave it in the ankle but it the top of my foot where the pain was. He looked at me in disbelief. It has only been 15 hours since the shot and my ankle is 75% better. I am sure that it will continue to improve in the next 48 hours The staff is professional and friendly, Dr Afesllari is knowledgeable and caring, the best in my opinion. I would highly recommend him."

  • "Dr. Calise and Bonnie provided an experience I will never forget. From the unfortunate cat accident to LOA and disability (THANK YOU Bonnie), a PAINLESS, flawless surgery (THANK YOU Dr. Calise), a hurricane, and now in physical therapy.....It's been an adventure. I walked away with great memories, an extensive education, a couple of good friends whom I'd trust with my life, and a bionic ankle. I HOPE I won't require their care in the future but if I ever have have foot or ankle problems, I'll be coming to Total foot & Ankle."
