Patient Testimonials

Dr. Phisitkul was incredibly nice, patient as I asked every question, and overall a kind person. I recommend him to anyone who needs his expertise!

- Dr. Phisitkul's Patient

Dr. Phisitkul is phenomenal. We came to him for a second opinion because we were unsatisfied with the first podiatrist we went to who kind of blew us off. I felt like Dr. Phisitkul saw the problem immediately. He shared what he felt the best treatment would be and why then explained clearly and concisely what that treatment and recovery would entail. He listened to my questions and answered them fully. I never felt like he was rushed and he always took the time to make sure I was informed and felt comfortable proceeding. We've been working with him for the past nine months on my son's feet and I highly recommend him!

This is my second foot surgery, with the first not going so well. Dr. Phisitkul did my second surgery and I cannot believe my recovery, compared to the first. I am a marathon runner so a full recovery is what I hoped for. I have been pain free since the day I had surgery. I cannot believe the difference between the two procedures. Dr. Phisitkul is a wonderful doctor. I would go to him a hundred times over based on my experience. We are so lucky to have him in the Siouxland area. Did I mention he is amazing? Because he truly is, and very kind as well.
