Really nice staff and the doctor sat and listened to me without giving the impression he had one hand on the door and was trying to escape. I really like him a lot, and told my husband and mom about him, too.

I've had two neuroma surgeries with Dr. Kolodenker. My feet keep getting better and better as more time passes! It's hard to trust your feet to just any doctor but I made the right choice. Very professional staff. Never any waits. Listen to my concerns. Great place!

Dr. Kolodenker is simply heaven sent. He is an angel from heaven on earth to me and I am so glad to have had the opportunity to have met him and be a patient of his.

I had bunions on both sides of both feet. Deciding to have the surgery was a big step, and I am very happy with the experience of Dr. Kolodenker and his whole office. No regrets here. Excellent service and excellent results. Thanks for the great care- he is a great surgeon. Highly recommended!

Dr. Kolodenker and his staff were great, would definitely recommend him to a family member or friend. He was very thorough, I felt listened to, and he gave me treatment options rather than orders.

Everyone was wonderful and I approciated that I was able to come in for rechecks so long after my surgery as I took extra long to heal up! Dr.k was wonderful and I would recommend him to anyone considering a bunionectomy, which is what I had done. Over a year later and my foot has healed wonderfully and the scar has diminished considerably as well, with the use of bio-oil topically. I Am very happy I had the surgery done!

I had a great experience with the office. Staff was very friendly and followed up after the appointment. Dr Kolodenker was great to work with. He listened and diagnosed the problem and gave me a multi step solution. So far the non surgical first step solution seems to be working. Great patient care all around.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff and Dr. Kolodenker. I had an accident and was new to the area. I could not be more pleased with my recovery and the professional care I received!

I do not remember what time I saw the doctor. I filled out the paperwork and 5 minutes later, I saw the doctor.

Being new in the area I had to shop around to find the doctor who I would have feel comfortable with, I have seen dr. Kolodenker twice, I am glad I choose him he answered all my questions, concerns I had. Dr. Kolodenker is very professional, knowledgeable, kind, patience. I would recommend him highly! The ladies in front are very friendly with any questions of requests I might have!

We had a great experience with Dr. Kolodenker. He diagnosed the problem perfectly and my daughter's heel healed properly exactly how Dr. Kolodenker said it would. He did not recommend additional unneeded procedures, which we were happy about. We would definitely recommend him.

My experience with Dr. K was fantastic. He's thorough and patient,and I always felt confident with information and advice he gave me. I emailed him a few times with questions and he always got back to me the same day. He did surgery on both of my feet and I would highly recommend him.

The BEST Doctor EVER! After 2 doctors and 3 surgeries before him, Dr. K was able to "fix" me. He did an amazing job fixing my broken foot that I had been dealing with for 2 years. I only wish I had found him sooner.

I saw Dr. Kolodenker for foot/toe pain. I had evidently fractured the sesamoid bones a few years ago, and never sought treatment. The pain had progressed to the point that I was unable to bear weight on my foot or step off with my great toe, and was walking with my foot supinated. I had ceased playing tennis 8 months before, which was a big part of my life.
Dr. Kolodenker took the time to carefully assess my problem. He formed a plan of care and explained his rationale for the procedure he was recommending.
One day after my surgery, he followed up with a phone call even though it was a weekend.
My recovery was uneventful, and I did the toe stretching exercises faithfully (even though it hurt!) to be sure that I would have a good result. I knew that if I had any concerns Dr. Kolodenker would be available to address them without making me feel like I was "bothering him".
It's been 10 weeks since my surgery, and I have almost full function of my foot. I didn't realize how much muscle strength I had lost in my ankle by walking on the side of my foot, and actually had to work hard to walk normally again. I'm starting to play tennis, and I couldn't be more pleased.

Thank you for fitting me in for an appointment. My foot feels so much better. Dr. Kolodenker is amazing. I feel so happy now. I'll be able to dance tonight. I am so glad I found him.

Dr. Kolodenker is hands down THE. BEST. I tend to be a person who questions doctors relentlessly because at the end of the day, who's going to care about my body more than me? Dr. Kolodenker is a doctor that I absolutely trust with everything he says. If he could be my doctor for everything, that would be amazing. I met Dr. Kolodenker a little over a year ago after breaking my ankle in a razor scooter incident (seriously, don't buy one of these..it's an accident waiting to happen). I had to have a plate and six screws placed to repair my dislocation as well as the shattered fibula. I called on a Sunday. Within a couple hours of me leaving a message, he reviewed my xrays and gave me a rundown of what I needed. (What doctors do that nowadays?!) Before and after the surgery he listened to all of my questions, answered them thoroughly, and during my recovery took all of my worries seriously and never once made me feel like I was overreacting.
In addition to the great bedside manner (super calm and puts you at ease), he highly recommends physical therapy which is HUGE. Many doctors don't push their patients to understand how important it is in your recovery. On top of that, I actually got compliments from the physical therapists office on how great the incisions were and the lack of scar tissue from the surgery. I was also never casted. Casts seem to be kind of an old school method that has since been shown not to be as effective in some cases. In others, you have no choice. But it's good to have a doctor that stays on top of what's best in the field and is able to judge the situations that it should be applied. He also urged me and directed me how to start moving my ankle as soon as he determined it was ok..I was so nervous..it hurt..but I trusted him and it has absolutely paid off.
Overall, he has been understanding of my lifestyle and needs. I like to workout, mainly lifting weights, and I am also not good at not being able to get around or being limited physically. He let me work at my own pace in recovering as much as the healing process would allow. I don't think I would've recovered as well mentally or physically during the process if it wasn't for having such a great doctor and surgeon for my injury.
If you're undecided on someone to use..use him!! Seriously, I've seen other ortho specialists for other things, you won't find any better, by far. All of his staff are great, always smiling (you can tell they enjoy working for him, which says a lot), never had issues with billing, appointments, or wait times. This review is long already..I literally can't say enough good things about Dr. Kolodenker.
Thanks Dr. K, I hope this doesn't make it awkward when I'm back in for check-ups :)

Dr. Kolodenker is the best. He removed a neuroma from my foot and I have had no problem since. He is very caring, listens and has a wonderful attitude. He keeps his appointments on time and I never feel rushed. Would definitely recommend him.

Best doctor ever, i been there many times. The doctor explains to you easily that you can understand the problem, and give great treatment.

Dr. Kolodenker is the BEST D.P.M. I have EVER been to. I've had to have both my feet reconstructed (of which he did one foot). His work was less invasive than the first foot surgery I had done in Wisconsin. Honestly, I think my feet are afraid of him, because I haven't had any issues with either of them in almost one whole year!!! He's dynamite!

Dr. Kolodenker is the best ! I'm so glad I found him originally through Yelp after reviewing his many recommendations. He was very patient and thorough in explaining my options as far as treatments or procedures. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Even when the billing portions came along he was very understanding and helpful. That's all anyone could ask for. Thank you.

I love Dr. Kolodenker! He is awesome. I had bunion surgery and my entire experience couldn't have been any smoother. Everything went along according to plan every step of the way and recovery was quicker than I expected. Dr. Kolodenker is so knowledgeable, decisive and efficient. I have had 3 other podiatrists over the years and treatment was always a very long, drawn out process with some trial and error involved but Dr. Kolodenker was very self assured in his diagnosis and treatment plan, which put me at ease from my very first visit. He speaks with a high degree of certainty, which instantly makes you feel comfortable under his care. Not to mention he is the NICEST man who knows how to deal with big babies like me. As a bonus, his whole office is run very efficiently; this is not a typical doctors office where you spend a lot of time waiting. I recommend him to everyone.

I originally found Dr. Kolodenker from Yelp and I'm really happy I did. I was originally seeing a different podiatrist before I came across Dr. K but I wasn't happy with my prior doctor. At my first appointment with Dr. K I knew he was the doctor to perform surgery on my foot. He's seriously awesome! He removed a decent size ganglion cyst and months later it looks and feels great! I highly recommend him and his staff.

Dr. Kolodenker is awesome. I am generally not comfortable with doctors but he makes it very easy and comfortable. It's easy to get appointments and all the staff is nice. He is also quick to return your calls if you have any questions. I'm glad I was referred to him by my doctor and have already mentioned him to so many others.

The custom inserts Dr Kolodenker made were sooo comfortable! I forgot I was wearing them & looked down at my feet in a panic thinking I left home wearing my slippers! It's as if he erased all the horrors of severe RA in my feet! Thank You Dr Kolodenker!

Great doctor who cares about his patients

Great bedside manner with my little 5 year old

Dr. Kolodenker is the best! He is so patient and thorough in explaining the procedures or treatments available. Even when I was worried about the billing portion, he was more than flexible to help clear up confusion and work with me. I can't ask anything more than someone who understands. Thank you
