My daughter hurt her heel in soccer practice this week and after seeing another doctor, we decided to go to McDowell Podiatry. Sure glad we did. 

After reviewing the other doctor's x-rays and taking his own, doing an ultrasound to inspect her tendons and any potential fractures Dr. Ripp examined her foot, watching her walk up the hall and even running a blind test to check for pain-sensitive areas in various areas of the Achilles' tendon, toes, calf, etc.

Ultimately the prognosis made sense and she was fitted with a brace and he recommended new supportive running shoes due to slight pronation.

I found the staff to be very caring and sweet and Dr. Ripp extremely thorough, credible, conscientious and wise in considering ways for her to avoid this injury in the future.
