Everyone at Lakes Foot and Ankle are so friendly and informative. Their office has all the latest technology it’s ready cool to see how they use it. Doctor Jen is really great at what she does. I highly recommend if you are having any problems at all with your feet or toe nails go see them. Also their billing department was very understanding during these hard economic times and they are working with me on a payment plan. Not a lot of doctor offices will do that but they are.
