What our patients say
Our patients are the absolute best — We wouldn’t be great without our great patients.
Dr. Huang is an incredible podiatrist. I had had an issue with my toe for years and had basically given up on it. I met with him, and after about 5 minutes, he diagnosed the problem. We came up with a treatment plan and now… No more toe problem! It was frankly amazing. I’d highly recommend him to each and every person dealing with foot or ankle issues. Thanks Gilbert!
