I had an ingrown toenail and was able to get an appointment with Dr. Gifford the next day..the office staff were very understanding, knowing that I was in pain and they worked me in. I saw the Dr. in the morning. he was very nice and made me feel comfortable, giving me the options to alieve my pain. he had a very nice bedside manner and was able to do a quick, painless minor surgery, to take a part of my nail away. He knew what he was doing. I was in and out in a half an hour. I would recommend Dr. Gifford to anyone with a foot issue. you won’t be disappointed.
