April, 2014

I came to Heel Pain Center of Atlanta at American Foot & Leg Specialists as a referral from my primary care doctor. I was experiencing a lot of pain in my heel on my right foot. It had gotten so bad that I was having trouble walking.

I saw Dr. Loren Colon. The first visit he gave me an injection on my and told me I had plantar fasciitis. My foot was a little better but the pain returned so I came back to see Dr. Loren. He recommended surgery. Because I am on steroid for rheumatoid arthritis I had to have the open procedure. I was extremely nervous but had complete confidence in Dr. Loren. He told me it would be about a 4 week recovery. I did exactly as I was told. I kept my foot elevated for the first week and was on crutches.

I guess I was one of the lucky ones because the feeling did not come back in my foot for almost 3 days. The nurses had cautioned me before surgery to take my pain pills even if I wasn’t in pain. I did not have hardly any pain. I only had some discomfort for a very short time. Dr. Loren called to check on me and one of the nurses also called.

Dr. Loren was able to take my stitches out at 2 weeks after surgery because I was doing so well. I have not had any heel pain since the surgery. I am now 4 weeks after surgery and I am going on a cruise.

Thanks for everything Dr. Loren,

I was very happy with the surgical release that was done on my feet. Every time I have been to the office everyone has been so pleasant. They explain every thing to me. I was in great pain when I first came to the office. Now I am pain free thanks to Dr. Loren Colon and his staff.

I was looking for a podiatrist that would speak Spanish so I would feel more comfortable…and I’m glad Dr. Marieli Colon. She was honest, has a lot of knowledge, and made me feel very comfortable.

I am a police officer so I am constantly on my feet all day. I am running after individuals and constantly putting weight on my feet. After running after a perpetrator on one evening I tore my achilles’ tendon. Having to be on my feet all day I was very concerned that I would not be able to perform my everyday duties. I visited American Foot and Leg Specialist to receive treatment for my injury. My doctor is Dr. Loren Colon, who went over my options with different procedures and Dr. Colon suggest that I go with PRP procedure. I was very happy with the service that I received from the first time I walked into the office as well as the procedure. The procedure was by far the right choice for me and had me back on my feet in a quick manner. Dr. Colon and his nursing staff have been nothing but help to me through the whole process and have been there for me every step of the way. I am not from Georgia so when it was hard for me to choose a doctor knowing that the future of my career depended on it. I am so very happy that I chose American Foot and Leg and that I had Dr. Colon as my primary physician. If someone would come to me and ask for my recommendation I would highly recommend American Foot and Leg. My future was in their hands and they have gone above and beyond to ensure that I get back on the streets and I thank them for that.

I am a retired Army Officer with over 27 years of service, I continue my physical fitness routines after I left the Army. Recently I developed a low level pain in the arch of my left foot after running; that soon became Chronic to the point I was actually limping everywhere I went. I was diagnosed by Dr Loren Colon with Plantar Fasciitis. I did not find relief in using conventional ice compresses and stretching exercises so Dr Colon suggested PRP, (Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy). I must say the results are above what my expectations were. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Colon and his whole staff for providing me this amazing healing experience. Your friendly and informative manner provided me with viable options beyond learning to live with pain in my advancing years. The PRP procedure you performed was painless and has resulted in significant improvement in my foot; to painless walking after workouts. As you know, when I first consulted you, I was in considerable pain and had very limited mobility in walking. The post painless procedure itself was quite tolerable and I appreciated your concern for my comfort as well as the clear description you offered about all aspects of this procedure. I admit I was unconvinced that I had to leave my foot elevated for several days after the operation, but I dutifully followed your instructions and in retrospect I am glad I did. I had the procedure on the 27th of December (my 59th birthday no less) and here it less than two months later (the 23rd of February) and I am walking my dog with my wife in the neighborhood again without experiencing pain afterwards. Thank you again for your attention and care. I am very grateful.
