Our California Podiatrist Team Appreciates the Praise We Get From Our Patients

We don’t like to brag about our comprehensive podiatry services. Fortunately, we don’t need to. Our patients do it for us! Here, our patients tell others what it is like to work with our team on foot, leg, and ankle disorders.

  • 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

  • "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 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!"

  • "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."

  • It’s like one hundred per cent difference in my feet and I would recommend it to anybody to do that because I think it is probably the easiest way and the one you’ll get the most results from.

    My name is Ann and we live in the Desert in the winter and in Michigan in the summer which is our home.  For as long as I can remember my toes have had a fungus on them.  I did not know that’s what it was but they looked awful so I rarely would wear sandals or anything like that because I did not want anybody to see them.  So when I talked to my daughter when I was out here, she is a patient of Dr. Danciger, and she said go see him.  I did and he suggested a method with a laser.  I tried treating the condition with medications but that made me sick and I tried that twice.  For me I would not recommend it, maybe it works for some others, but it never helped and I never could get through it till about two months.  With the Laser it was more than easy.  I came in and had treatments, once a week I came, painless.  You can read a magazine as you sit here.  You wear glasses cause it’s a laser, then you are on your way.  I have had wonderful results.  It’s like one hundred per cent difference in my feet and I would recommend it to anybody to do that because I think it is probably the easiest way and the one you’ll get the most results from.

  • My toe looks great and if you are thinking of having the surgery, I would recommend it.

    Hi.  My name is Lilia and I am from Imperial Valley.  I had bunion surgery a week ago and I have experienced virtually no pain.  Just a little bit of swelling.  It feels fine and I am able to walk.  I just keep my foot up as often as I can so I would not get a lot of swelling.  I haven’t been able to take a bath which is hard, but towel baths. Next week I will be able to, when they take the stitches out.  Actually, I looked at my foot today when Dr. Danciger took the bandage off and it looks really good.  I’m impressed!!!  My toe looks great and if you are thinking of having the surgery, I would recommend it.  People had told me it was very painful and I have experienced, I would say, very little pain.  Mainly a little bit of, like it is stretching maybe, but no, no real pain.  So I would recommend you have the surgery if you need it.

  • I had very little discomfort and just wonderful service and a very easy surgery. I recommend it to anyone who is afraid of having a bunion done to come and see Dr. Danciger.

    My name is Elaine.  I live in Rancho Mirage, California.  About 25 years ago I had my left bunion done and it was painful and a tough recovery.  I was hesitant to come and have my right one done.  I saw Dr. Danciger and he assured me that it would be a less than painful surgery and so we went ahead and I have had two days of pain meds that was it after surgery. I had very little discomfort and just wonderful service and a very easy surgery.  I recommend it to anyone who is afraid of having a bunion done to come and see Dr. Danciger.

  • The last treatment that I had was on this new laser machine, the Cutting Edge machine, which is really marvelous. I can’t say enough about it because I felt the benefit right during the first treatment and it has since recovered almost entirely.

    A little over a year ago I had surgery on my foot to replace a joint in the big toe, the right big toe.  It was done over a year ago in Allentown, Pennsylvania.  The surgeon said then that the recovery would be about six months and I came to see Dr. Danciger about a year later when it was still hurting. The last treatment that I had was on this new laser machine, the Cutting Edge machine, which is really marvelous.  I can’t say enough about it because I felt the benefit right during the first treatment and it has since recovered almost entirely.

  • Dr. Danciger successfully treats a patient struggling with a painful ingrown toenail. After a painless procedure and follow-up appointments for further treatment, the patient walks out of the Palm Desert office healed of the condition that was previously ailing them.

    I came to Dr. Danciger because I had a very infected ingrown toenail.  I was very apprehensive about the procedure, always have been.  I’ve had ingrown toenails all my life. I Heard about Dr. Danciger as a referral, and I came over here because it was hurting pretty badly for several months. I was worried about the shot more than anything.  And the shot, he went very slowly and it stung a little bit, I knew that was going to happen anyway, but it was very calm, wasn’t bad. Then when he went in to work on the ingrown toenail, there was absolutely no pain, no pressure, nothing.  It was much better than I ever expected.  The staff is awesome. I had an experience with another doctor here in the valley and it wasn’t anywhere close to this one.  There has been a lot of aftercare, which has been awesome. My toe is healing quite well. I am quite happy because it does not hurt anymore.

  • Dr. Danciger explained what needed to happen to me. Now the fungus under my nails is completely gone and my foot is normal again.

    Today I want to talk to you about the health of our feet.  Since I am a senior citizen, we always took our feet for granted.  We just did not worry too much about them.  If they got swollen in the evening, just get them up in the evening and tomorrow you can do your work. Now what about fungus under one of your toenails?  I still remember some 20 years ago, that the Medical Doctors did not see a fungus under the toe nail important enough to be treated.  Now I know better. I went to see Dr. Harvey Danciger and this knowledgeable, caring Podiatrist spelled out to me what needed to be done.  The fungus is completely gone and my foot is normal again. I have been in nursing all my life, I saw many people suffering with foot problems, which could have been prevented by going in time to the podiatrist.  Feet are very exposed and could pick up some real dirty stuff.  Since there are so many diabetics amongst us, they absolutely need to see the podiatrist before it is too late.  So please set up an appointment with Dr. Harvey Danciger.  The staff is very friendly and the doctor will discuss with you what needs to be done.  Doctor takes good care of your feet, and of your ankles as well.

  • Great newsletter, happy with my experience, value the experience with senior care.

    What a nice newsletter...and by the way I was very pleased with the help you gave me.  My foot is feeling normal again. And though I just "picked you out of the yellow pages"' of the Desert Pages 2008  directory (I liked that you'd been practicing  for many years and mentioned "senior care"), I couldn't have been happier if I had had a personal referral.  Know that I would recommend you to anyone looking for podiatry care.
