  • Dr. Danciger did a wonderful job!

    My husband made an appointment to see Dr. Danciger today. We were very lucky, as he did a wonderful job and we are now new patients of his. I recommend Dr. Harvey Danciger very highly.

  • I just wanted to thank you for your very nice notes to both me and my husband

    I just wanted to thank you for your very nice notes to both me and my husband and to let you know that, although it does not look like you need any more testimonials, I would be happy to add mine. I was amazed that you made a diagnosis and treatment recommendation that was so minimal. My experience has been that so many doctors will order expensive and completely unnecessary tests and require multiple visits for therapy, maximizing their income at no greater benefit to the patient. You did the least for the most benefit , sending me home with a ready made shoe insert and exercises I should do at home. I am so pleased and impressed. Many thanks. Nancy

  • I was just so pleased with it. It’s a great machine. I really enjoyed Dr. Danciger - very professional and I suggest anybody to go to Dr. Danciger.

    After about, well it was about five weeks ago, after doing a lot of hiking and climbing and a lot of golf, I developed a lot of pain and soreness in the bottom of my right foot. I checked it out with my hand and found out I had two large bumps. One was on the ball of my foot and the other one was in the back of my arch, underneath my foot. So, I started using ice and heat for about two weeks and nothing helped, the bumps were the same. So, I noticed that when I got on the web, I found Dr. Danciger’s website and checked it out and decided to make an appointment. I had great reception with the front office, the women were fabulous and professional and respectful. When I met with Dr. Danciger, he suggested that either we can try a new laser or shots or even surgery. I chose the new type of laser that he has. It was six appointments. The laser was painless, 100% painless. It took four minutes, each time, and within two appointments, I was 40% pain free. I think, what it does, the doctor said it reduces the swelling and stimulates the circulation. After the fourth appointment, they were down to 80-90%, and after the last one, the sixth one, they were 99% done. I was just so pleased with it. It’s a great machine. I really enjoyed Dr. Danciger - very professional and I suggest anybody to go to Dr. Danciger.

  • I don’t have pain in my foot anymore. I opted for the laser treatment and I’m glad I did. I’m just grateful to have my life back!

    "Hi, my name’s Marie, I’m from Indio. I came into Dr. Danciger’s office for a second opinion. I came in looking for an alternate treatment to surgery. Upon my visit with Dr. Danciger it was discovered that I had not only a bone spur but a heel spur, and also had an extra bone in my foot which was not discovered or discussed before, which I was grateful for that discovery. Upon talking to Dr. Danciger, there was an alternative treatment for me, as I have auto-immune diseases, which makes it very complicated for me to even be a candidate for surgery - it’s not recommended. Dr. Danciger and his staff have been able to give me back my life, where I have the ability to walk or to run or to exercise. I don’t have pain in my foot anymore. I opted for the laser treatment and I’m glad I did. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone else looking for an alternative to surgery. I’m grateful to Dr. Danciger. Their staff has gone above and beyond to make sure I keep my appointments and that I’m on time and explain the procedure to me. It’s painless, you don’t have any pain. You have immediate relief and I’m sleeping better. I’m just grateful to have my life back!"

  • It has been a very pleasant experience working with the doctor because he is so attentive and probably has heard these symptoms a thousand times and still is caring enough to try to help me.

    Hi, I’m Ron and I’m talking to you because six years ago I had a tumor removal brain operation. As a result of that, I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy. I have sought the help of various physicians and therapeutic people with not a great deal of success. Now I’m in the doctor’s office and I’ve been treated with a laser treatment and some supplements and new inserts and new shoes. I seem to be doing much much better. My wife indicates to me that I’m no longer suffering from restless leg syndrome. My ability to walk is much much improved. I can do without the cane now, which I had been using, I still use it on occasion. I find that the doctor is very attentive. He listens to my symptoms and together we’ve come up with an approach with this laser therapy and supplements that I believe is meeting with some success. I’m looking forward to having it get much better. I would like to comment that it has been a very pleasant experience working with the doctor because he is so attentive and probably has heard these symptoms a thousand times and still is caring enough to try to help me. Also, his staff is very friendly. The office is very professional and I’m extremely impressed and would freely recommend the doctor and his staff to any of my friends who might be in need of this kind of medical treatment.

  • "I beg anybody who has foot problems or ankle problems or anything, to go to this wonderful, wonderful doctor."

    "My name is Rita and I live here in Palm Desert. For the past 7 months I have been begging for a miracle, and I found my miracle with Dr. Danciger. I could not stand on my feet. I could not walk. I was screaming in pain, and now I think I’ve been here a month and a half and I’m a new person. My miracle has come true. I can walk, I can do everything because of Dr. Danciger’s treatment with laser and I’m so happy - so very very happy. I beg anybody who has foot problems or ankle problems or anything, to go to this wonderful, wonderful doctor. I am so very grateful - for being a person again, I couldn’t be before. It was unbelievable. I would be screaming in pain, living on vicodin, and I don’t even take a pill now for my feet or my legs. I have neuromas and I have neuropathy, but I’m alive and I can do anything now. I want to thank Dr. Danciger so much for treating me. It really has been a pleasure, and I walk out - no, I dance out when I’m finished with my treatments. Everybody’s laughing at me, and I’m laughing at myself. Thank you Dr. Danciger, very, very much. Thank you."

  • "I had difficulty sleeping, sometimes walking in the morning. I started the laser treatment and after the second or third time I had it, I was able to sleep so much better."

    "Hi, my name is Marge and I’ve been coming to Dr. Danciger for close to two months now. I started having a lot of problems with my feet - probably for 10 or 15 years they’ve really bothered me. I had difficulty sleeping, sometimes walking in the morning. I started the laser treatment and after the second or third time I had it, I was able to sleep so much better. I still have the tingling, but the pins and needles don’t seem to be as bad, and burning, but even that’s better too. I’m still coming for the treatments, I’m going to have 10 in all. I really can recommend them because they don’t hurt at all. They’re very easy to do and I have gotten some relief, hoping to maybe even a lot more. Thank you."

  • "I finally bit the bullet, had the surgery done. It’s been nine weeks and I have the most comfortable foot I’ve had in twenty years!"

    "Hi, my name is Dianne. I’m from Rancho Mirage, California. For twenty years I have found it really normal to have a corn removed from my little toe, three or four times a year. A few years ago, Dr. Danciger suggested that I get a surgery on my two toes, because what was causing the corn was misaligned bones, I suppose is a good way to say it. I stalled and stalled for a few years until it became unbearable because wearing closed-toed shoes was the most painful thing and working on my feet was extremely painful. So, I finally bit the bullet, had the surgery done. It’s been nine weeks and I have the most comfortable foot I’ve had in twenty years! It was not easy, but I’m really glad I did it. It was worth it and I’m much better now."

  • "The process was absolutely painless. Of course, the toe was fixed. It was an easy procedure. I’m now back for my four-day visit, the toe is healing fine. I’m looking forward to having a lifetime without an ingrown toenail issue.

    "My name’s Bob. I live in La Quinta, CA, and I was referred to Dr. Danciger by the Eisenhower Medical Center, where I’m a concierge patient. I had an ingrown toenail and saw Dr. Danciger last spring. That would have been June of 2014. He advised me at the time, he said, ‘Look, I can trim this toenail and make the pain go away for a while, but the long term solution is a surgical procedure.’ I opted, at the time, for simply a trim, but he cautioned me that within a month or two, the nail would grow back and the pain would occur again. Sure enough, that’s the case. So, I came in in October, and said, ‘Let’s do the permanent solution.’  It was at some trepidation, because the idea of having surgery on my big toe was not a pleasant prospect for me. He explained the procedure and how he was going to take this big needle and stick it in my toe and I was fearful that I would levitate at that. But, I screwed up my courage and came in and said, ‘Let’s do it.’  However, as concerned as I was about it, it turns out that with his procedure with more or less freezing the area, which was not uncomfortable, and then injecting it, I didn’t even feel the injection. The process was absolutely painless. Of course, the toe was fixed. It was an easy procedure. I’m now back for my four-day visit, the toe is healing fine. I’m looking forward to having a lifetime without an ingrown [toenail] issue. So, for that, I’m very appreciative. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Danciger to anyone."

  • "I highly recommend Dr. Danciger and I recommend that you don’t wait like I did, because why suffer when you don’t need to?"

    "Hi, I’m Monique. I live in Palm Desert. I had an ingrown toenail and I was very nervous about going to see a podiatrist because I had a bad experience last year. I had hit my big toe and I went to urgent care because it was after office hours, and the doctor hurt me a lot when he gave me the injection to numb my toe. So, I hesitated to come in, but I finally did. I called Dr. Danciger’s office and I came to see him, and would you know, he didn’t hurt me at all! I had a book with me, I read in my book from the beginning of the procedure to the end - never missed a word! I highly recommend Dr. Danciger and I recommend that you don’t wait like I did, because why suffer when you don’t need to?"

  • "I had two toes that were extremely crooked and bent, coming over and pushing against my large toe."

    "I’m Karen and I’ve just had a successful foot operation. I had two toes that were extremely crooked and bent, coming over and pushing against my large toe. In fact, they pushed so hard against my large toe that the toenail on the large toe was very convex and painful. I had decided I was going to have it done and Dr. Danciger did my foot two months ago, and now, I’ve got to say, I’ve had no pain at all and I’m walking in a shoe again! I’m very happy with it. I’m swimming, I’m exercising and I’m very happy. Thank you!"

    Karen M.
  • "I underwent laser therapy treatment for the infection and today it’s all gone."

    "My name is Jonathan and I’m from Palm Desert. I came to Dr. Danciger’s office about 8 months ago with a fungal infection on my right big toe. I underwent laser therapy treatment for the infection and today it’s all gone. My toenail is growing back wonderfully and I was very happy with the office staff. They were very professional, courteous, and even made a few jokes every now and then!"

    Jonathan G.
  • "There’s no problem at all, and it’s starting to look better since they started using the laser on the toenails."

    "My name is Bob and I’ve started taking laser on my toenails and it’s nothing. I just sit down and the laser is on there for 40 minutes a treatment - which is six visits. There’s nothing to it. It’s supposed to clear up within a year, and it’s a lot easier than taking medication every day. There’s no problem at all, and it’s starting to look better since they started using the laser on the toenails. I’m very happy with what’s going on so far."

    Bob O.
  • "I’m very happy with him and I’m very happy that my nerves were quieted down and I could go through this. It was simple! "

    "Hi, my name’s Dory, and I live in Palm Desert. I’m a patient of Dr. Danciger. About a year ago I injured my big toe, and as a result of that, I got a terrible ingrown toenail. He said that I would have to have some surgery on it to correct it. Well, I was very nervous about the whole thing of having surgery – it was a little scary for me. He said that he was going to give me a local, and I thought that he was going to put me to sleep, but to my surprise, he told me, ‘No, no, no’ he wasn’t going to do that. He was just going to freeze the foot and give me some shots in my toe, and then he would just cut the bad part out. So here I am now, and today’s my last visit with Dr. Danciger. My toe, as Dr. Danciger has said, is doing wonderful! I’m very happy with him and I’m very happy that my nerves were quieted down and I could go through this. It was simple! That’s it, folks!"

  • "I’ve been coming to Dr. Danciger for the last couple of weeks for laser treatments, which have been remarkably successful."

    "I’m Gary from Rancho Mirage. I’ve had neuropathy in my feet for approximately 10 years. We treated it with various forms of medication. I’ve been on those medications for almost that length of time, including a few epidurals to try to take care of the neuropathy. I’ve been coming to Dr. Danciger for the last couple of weeks for laser treatments, which have been remarkably successful. I’ve gone for longer periods of time without pain or pain medication, and I look forward to even better results as it takes its time to become fully effective. The treatments began to be effective, I would say, after the 6th or 7th treatment. Almost as scheduled. It wasn’t promised before that, and it showed up just about on schedule."

    Gary
  • "I came in for the laser treatment and it took the pain away."

    "Hi, my name is Linda. I live in Palm Desert, CA. I came to Dr. Danciger after going elsewhere. I had pain in my foot and I had surgery and the pain was still there. I had very little range of motion in my toe. I came in for the laser treatment and it took the pain away. It has reduced the scar tissue and it’s increased the movement in my toe probably three-fold. I would definitely recommend it."

    Linda B.
  • I would like to thank Dr. Danciger and his staff for taking care of me, and I appreciate it very much.

    “My name is Hugh. I am a tennis player, I played Wimbledon and I go to Europe to play every year. I had a hip replacement about five years ago and all of a sudden my left ankle became swollen and arthritic. I had all kinds of problems and there was a great deal of pain when I tried to play tennis. I came here to see Dr. Danciger and he gave me [laser treatment.] It was very effective. I feel much better and the pain is quite a bit less, and I’m sure, if I continued, I would feel even better. So I would like to thank Dr. Danciger and his staff for taking care of me, and I appreciate it very much.”

    Hugh
  • "I just thought it was remarkable..."

    I could hardly walk in. Today I was walking without pain and on my own. I just thought it was remarkable what just 11 minutes of this laser treatment could do. I just think its a marvelous thing because everyone kept offering me canes and finally someone brought one by and 2 days later I don't need it, I have to give it back. I'm a real proponent of the treatment, it's very fine.

  • "...with a very short, very painless procedure, I’m going to go shopping for closed-toed shoes"

    "Hi, my name is Fran and I’m 67 years old. I’ve had ingrown toenails most of my life. I haven’t worn closed-toed shoes in decades. After I did some research, I found Dr. Danciger and his really amazing, nice staff, and with a very short, very painless procedure, I’m going to go shopping for closed-toed shoes. It doesn’t hurt to exercise anymore and I am thrilled. The operation is painless, the after-care is easy and simple and it’s been a most amazing experience. I’m looking forward to my next pedicure!"

  • Palm Desert patient experiences great relief from sharp toe pain after Dr. Danciger's laser treatments.

    “Hi, my name is Brenda and I live in Palm Desert. I came to Dr. Danciger about three weeks ago. I was having pain in my right foot between my third and fourth toe – it was a sharp pain. When I put pressure on it, I’d get the feeling like a shock almost, and I wasn’t sure what was going on, so I came to him and he diagnosed it as – there was a nerve that was getting pinched when I put pressure on my foot. He took an x-ray and one of his suggestions was to try some laser treatment, which I agreed to. I started the laser treatment and I started noticing some improvement probably after the second treatment. It was very easy, it only takes about 10 minutes, and it’s painless and so far, for me, it’s been working great. I’ve had six treatments now, and I would say the pain has really decreased a lot. I very rarely get that sharp shock of a pain anymore. I still feel a little rubbing sensation maybe once in a while, but for me, this has been great and I’m really glad that I made the decision to try the laser before doing anything else. It’s really great and I would recommend it and it’s really helped me a lot.”
