“I had the pleasure – yes, pleasure – of having bunion surgery at the Lakes Foot and Ankle office. From my first visit, I knew I made the right choice(s) … the right choice in choosing Dr. Shanahan and staff and the right choice of having the surgery.
All of my questions were answered that first visit. I walked out of the office shaking my head wondering why I waited so long to have this done. As the surgery date approached, I made many calls to the office staff with questions and they were answered completely and kindly. I never felt like I was a bother.On the day of the surgery, the staff greeted me with smiles and reassurances.
They prepped me with the utmost of professionalism and had me laughing all the way into the surgical room. What a pleasant experience!!! Unlike a hospital, where you many times feel like “just another patient.”The post-op period was just as pleasant as the pre-op. I listened to Dr. Shanahan’s mantra: ICE-ELEVATE-MEDICATE and did not have an ounce of pain. Honestly, not one once of pain! Having heard so many horror stories from other women who had this surgery done, I was very apprehensive and waited many years to make my decision to have surgery. I won’t wait that long again.
I know that my other foot has to be taken care of and I am already looking forward to having the surgery next summer.I cannot express my gratitude to Dr. Shanahan and staff for making this entire process a positive and pleasant experience. I have already recommended Dr. Shanahan and staff to three coworkers and friends and will continue to recommend … top notch from start to finish!!!”
