Please take a few minutes to see what some of our patients are saying about their foot and ankle pain relief and our podiatry services here at Animas Foot & Ankle.
“I wanted to write you personally to thank you…I have tears in my eyes right now just thinking about the condition I was in when I first came to you…it was so bad…and now, you have turned my whole life around. Because of you and your incredible work, I actually have a life again. Yes, it took time. Yes, it took effort…a great deal of it. But again, as a patient, it was up to me to take responsibility for my recovery…you did your job and you did it beautifully!!! How can I ever thank you enough?? You are such a gifted surgeon!!! And your a pretty neat guy all the way around too! I didn’t want another day to go by, without sharing all of this with you!! At 53 years old, I walk better now than I ever have in my ENTIRE life!!!!!I just want to say thank you and God bless you for what you have done for me. And I do know you were very concerned about my left foot and also suggested I have it done as well. I just want you to know, that when I am ready to tackle that, I will be back to see you again. Of course I am hoping and praying that it continues to hold out on me, but should things start changing, I will call you. Right now, I am just enjoying my new found freedom.
Again, Dr. Nick…you were a Godsend!!! Thank you so much!!! And don’t be afraid to recommend a good stationary bike to your patients!!! It really helped me break through the pain and strengthen my foot and of course, my entire body!!
Blessings to you and your staff and family!!!!!”
“The entire staff is VERY friendly, welcoming, and thorough. I felt at ease within seconds of my visit. At my follow-up appointment I got my days mixed up and showed up without an appointment, but the receptionist was able to fit me into the schedule.”
“Highly recommend Animas Foot and Ankle. I have been going to this office for a few months now, and the staff in this office are ALWAYS so great. Very friendly, very understanding, and very helpful. So glad I didn’t go to Mercy! The doctor may be young, but he really knows his stuff and is familiar with all the new techniques and technologies related to his practice. I know other recent patients and they would say the same.”
“I had a climbing accident that left me facing the possibility of losing my foot/leg. It was repaired, but the plate and 7 screws holding my heel and foot together have been problematic ever since. I continued to run, climb, fight (MMA), and do all sorts of things I wasn’t supposed to. In mid-2014, I went to see Dr. Hugentobler and he quickly determined that I needed my hardware removed. He wasn’t ambitious to do an unnecessary surgery, but he felt the plate and screws were sitting on a nerve (which they were). It turned out that I had also partially severed two tendons. Getting this plate removed has not only alleviated the pain but given me a whole new life. For the first time since my accident, I am running pain free and doing things I thought I would never do again without the pain. Thank you simply isn’t enough!!!!! But THANK YOU ANIMAS FOOT & ANKLE!”
