  • "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.

  • 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.”

  • I’m so happy to say that with all of this good stuff that I got from Dr. Danciger, I have been pain free from last February 2013 until the present time, almost the end of 2013.

    My name is Gerry and I live at Heritage Palms in Indio, CA. I just wanted to tell everyone a little about my experience with Dr. Danciger. I came to this office on the recommendation of my dermatologist in November of 2012 with severe pain in both feet. I came to find out that I had plantar fasciitis in both feet, different areas of the feet. His method of help was to put me into a boot that fit over my foot and I would sleep with this boot and it would stretch during my sleeping hours and, believe me, it worked. I would alternate the boot, one night on the right foot the next night on the left foot. We did this from about November to February. Also, I was fitted with special inserts to help stretch the foot and help me with all the walking and exercise programs that I’m involved in. This also was a Godsend. I still wear those inserts every day, especially if I’m in tennis shoes or doing any exercising, or just plain walking normally. They have also been a wonderful way to get these feet back to normal, and I’m so happy to say that with all of this good stuff that I got from Dr. Danciger, I have been pain free from last February 2013 until the present time, almost the end of 2013. Hopefully this will continue, and I will continue with the inserts every day, but I no longer need the boot. If you have similar problems, this might be the way to go. I highly recommend Dr. Danciger. He’s the greatest! Thanks!

  • I work on my feet a lot, about 10 or 11 hours a day. I was having significant foot problems, until I came to Dr. Danciger.

    I work on my feet a lot, about 10 or 11 hours a day.  I was having significant foot problems, until I came to Dr. Danciger who gave me a thorough examination and also advice on buying the appropriate shoes, which took a little bit of time.  And then he made me inserts after trying some temporary ones, and since I got my permanent inserts, my feet feel so much better and my back doesn’t hurt.   My back is staying in alignment as well as my legs.  So that’s been a real blessing.  I would recommend Dr. Danciger and am very happy with the service I have been given by the staff and the doctor. Thank you.

  • For the first time in my life I wrote a letter to a Doctor, and I’ve never done that before, but I was so inspired I had to write it on paper and send it to you to thank you for giving me the opportunity to wear normal shoes again.

    Dr. Danciger, for the first time in my life I wrote a letter to a doctor. I've never done that before, but I was so inspired that I had to write it on paper and send it to you to thank you for actually giving me the opportunity to wear normal shoes again. I cannot believe how wonderful your arch supports were and what a difference they made immediately. After having nearly a year of a torn tendon and very poor treatment for it elsewhere. I was finally referred by two different doctors to your office and thankfully I am now able to walk around and do normal things, and gradually build up my walking again. The arch support is so discreet and small that I was able to go to New Balance and get my correct shoe size instead of walking around in what felt like boats. I just think it’s absolutely wonderful to have this now. I just so appreciate you and the girls in your office are just wonderful as well. They're funny, they're nice, and they’re sweethearts. So thank you, Merry Christmas and Happy Season because I'm walking on air with my new arch supports.

  • Patient is extremely satisfied after successful laser treatment for plantar fasciitis.

    I am a new patient of Dr. Danciger and his wonderful staff.  I came in with plantar fasciitis a week ago and Dr. Danciger gave me a very thorough examination, sold me insoles to go into my shoes.  Suggested Laser, which I agreed to do, and I can tell you 10 days later I feel like a new man!  I would strongly recommend Dr. Danciger and his wonderful staff, and the treatment facilities that they have here.

  • Laser treatment performed by Dr. Danciger results in drastic improvement in a patient's foot pain.

    I feel strongly about the laser treatment.  I only had eleven minutes, and I could hardly walk in and within a day I was walking without pain and on my own.  I thought it was just remarkable what just eleven minutes of this laser treatment could do.  I think it is a marvelous thing because everyone kept offering me canes and finally someone brought one by.  Two days later I don’t need it, I have to give it back. So I am a real proponent of this treatment.  It is very fine.

  • Patient experiences extreme satisfaction with laser treatment in dealing with foot pain due to an inflamed nerve.

    I came in with a sharp pain in my foot, that I really seriously suspected to be a broken bone and it had been like this for over a week, two weeks.  At night there was a dull, dull pain that kept me awake half the night.  Then in the morning when I first stepped there would be an excruciating pain.  And anyway, I did go to see a talk by a famous doctor, Sanjay Gupta, He said a lot of his older patents, in the talk, said there were two regrets they always had.  That they did not take better care of their teeth and their feet.  Well I decided maybe I better check this out, especially if this was broken bone.  It turned out to be an inflamed nerve, which I was happy it wasn’t a broken bone, but still was serious.  Anyway I’ve done the six treatments with the laser and I’ve got to say it definitely improved my problem.   It really happened about the third or fourth treatment out of six.  I really noticed a remarkably improved pain.  The pain was going.  I have now completed the six treatments and I would say it is ninety percent better.  It is definitely continuing to improve.  And I also went home after the doctor’s request and cleaned out my shoe closet and got rid of the offenders of the shoes.  I couldn’t be happier and I must say I would do this; I would try the laser definitely before any surgery.  Absolutely a must.  There was no pain at all.

  • I was miss-diagnosed in Oregon, I came to Dr. Danciger and now my pain is down from an 8 to a 0.

    I have had this pain now since 10-3-12 for 2 months.  I was diagnosed in Oregon and was ready to move to Indio, so I figured I would get therapy over there.  I did get therapy but they could not do much for me. Then I came to Dr. Danciger and had 10 days of treatment and doing very well, at least 70% better and hope to be playing golf in the next week. The pain was at a level of at least an 8 before I saw Dr. Danciger, and once I get moving it is 0. The pain was at the back of the heel with a spur and they diagnosed me in Oregon with tendonitis, but it is more involved than that. I was treated with a Laser and had insoles and now I am ready to play golf.

  • My life is completely changed after seeing Dr. Danciger. I can play golf, go to the gym, and enjoy my life without foot pain.

    You have completely changed my life. I’m almost completely pain free. I’ve gone from painfully walking for only minutes, to being back at the gym, and I’m taking beginning golf at COD. Unbelievable-For my midterm in golf I played 9 holes at Palm Royale where I had to walk the course; I was able to finish. I was a bit sore but I was sore all over. I no longer have to take my shoes off because my feet hurt. The only mistake I made was not finding you first. You’re awesome. I want to also mention you have an incredible staff that is all a reflection of you. Thanks so much to all of you.
