    Dr. Oaks is excellent! I've seen other podiatrists for repeated foot stress fx., but he is the only to nail down the cause & do anything to prevent continuing issues. He explained everything to me with great detail & took the time needed w/me.

    I had a very painful ingrown toenail, so needed to see a podiatrist. Dr. [...] recommended him. Dr. Oaks jumped right in and did the needed minor surgery. Dr. Oaks explained why the condition had developed & what could be done to prevent more problems in future. This was a follow up to toenail surgery.

    Experienced on May 30, 2019

    I was happy that Dr. Oaks could help with the immediate problem and may be able to prevent more problems. [...], his assistant, was more than kind. They both explained everything. My toenail was healing properly from the surgery.
