The care and ultimate resolution to my orthopedic condition provided by Dr. Jay Badell DPM, and his entire staff at the Florida Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Center proved to be extremely effective and deeply appreciated! I spent several years making visits to numerous “specialists”: two podiatrists (who provided arch supports, special shoes, and cortisone injections); a surgeon at a massive Sarasota orthopedic practice (provided ultrasound guided cortisone injections) and finally I now have the resolution to a painful and mobility limiting condition! Dr. Badell thinks outside of the box: clipping a nerve supplying sensitivity to an inoperable bone spur; using cutting edge techniques to enhance a favorable outcome - PRP during surgery; and using laser therapy post op to reduce discomfort and increase recovery time - ultimately allowing me to return to a pain free mobile existence! I was impressed with his entire team. The medical assistant Liam was very helpful during my laser therapy and office visits; the preoperative coordinator was very helpful and made the process easy to navigate; and the surgical center made the experience reached out to ensure that all of my questions were answered. I highly recommend Dr. Badell DPM!

I have been treating at Florida Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Center for approximately five months. During this time I have had numerous appointments at your facility. At each and every one of these appointments your staff has seen me on time or actually before the time of my scheduled appointment. In todays medicine this never happens, thank you for respecting my time, this is GREATLY appreciated. I was diagnosed as having heel spurs in both heels and Achilles Tendonitis in both ankles, a painful combination that was preventing me from living the active lifestyle of racket sports, golf and biking that I wanted to pursue on a daily basis. Through an aggressive, non surgical treatment regime, I am now 95% pain-free and able to once again pursue my active lifestyle. Thank you and your staff for quite literally getting me back onto my feet again. Bruce Morgan

56 year old type 2 diabetic here. A wound on my big toe became infected and spread to my bloodstream. Nine days in the hospital and loads of IV antibiotics. Dr. Badell performed the surgical procedure at the hospital to clean it out, biopsy the bone in my toe and follow up with my care until I was fully healed a few months later. I have been to several Podiatrists throughout the years and I can honestly say Dr. Badell is the nicest, most knowledgeable and competent physician that I have ever dealt with. I highly recommend him and will be seeing him quarterly for my routine diabetic foot check ups. His office staff is also very friendly and efficient. 5 stars plus for sure.

It is very rare to find a Doctor who never seems to be in a hurry. I have been a patient of Dr. Wolf for 15 months following a severe fracture of my left heel. At each visit, Dr. Wolf has taking all the time neccessary to explain the situation and the treatment options as well as answer all of my questions. Throughout the ups and downs of treatment he showed true concern and care for my well being. I highly recommend Dr.Wolf.

Dr. Cottom and his staff got my dad right in within 1 day while he was in town on vacation looking for a second opinion on his ankle pain resulting from a previous surgery out of state. They were very welcoming, helpful, quick, and thorough in their scheduling and examination. Dr. Cottom was genuine and very helpful with his insight, and very down to earth. Their new office is absolutely beautiful and the whole staff from front to back had great energy and welcoming smiles. They make you feel at home! I will absolutely be seeing Dr. Cottom in the future for my own foot problems, and I am positive my husband will be seeing him for their cool laser. Thank you all so much for taking care of my dad!

Words simply cannot express my gratitude for the extraordinary care provided by Dr. Cottom, both as a surgeon and as a clinician. I only wish all doctors were as skilled and caring as he is. I would recommend Dr. Cottom to anyone who needs treatment for their foot and/or ankle. He is truly head and shoulders above all the rest.

I am so very pleased with my entire experience! This is my 4th ankle surgery and thanks to Dr. Cottom and Dr Wolf, I will never have to have another surgery. Dr Cottom is so kind, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. He is a skilled surgeon and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome of my surgery. Also, Dr Wolf is a wonderful doctor and surgeon as well. As a team they are the best surgical team I believe in all of Florida if not beyond. I traveled two hours to this office and it was totally worth that! Finally, I want to say that Dr Cottom’s medical assistant, KP, is really quite amazing. She responds to any requests immediately and is also very patient and kind. This office is very lucky to have KP. All in all, I would say that if you have a foot and ankle need please don’t hesitate to go to this practice. They are top notch!

My visit to the office impressed me beyond words. I was coming for a second opinion, and then wished I had come there first. The staff (Katie, JP, Andy) made me feel so welcomed, and the facility was beautifully designed— more like a health spa than a traditional cold medical office. Dr. Greschner spent ample time listening, looking over the x-rays with me, and educating me. He gave me just the feedback I needed, and helped design a plan moving forward. I have a follow-up visit in a few weeks, and I'm looking forward to it. This practice is a wonderful gift to the community.

I have the utmost respect and praise for this gifted doctor and surgeon. Sarasota, Florida is lucky to have him. Outstanding care and communication. He assisted in the rebuilding of my achilles tendon and heel bone. Thoroughly pleased with all aspects of my surgery and aftercare.
