All of these doctors are very wonderful and kind! My children and I have had the privilege of seeing everyone of of them and I would definitely recommend them for superb care. Doctor Ta especially went above and beyond when he saw my daughters at the last minute for an emergency ingrown toe nail removal. After visiting his office, I was reassured that the girls were given the best service available and he was very compassionate along with answering all of my questions about their recovery. We look forward to returning and I can truly recommend these doctors as being the most professional and caring in the Georgetown area.
Dr. Ta was wonderful. He spend time asking me questions to thoroughly understand my symptoms, and then spent even more time explaining his thoughts on my diagnosis and possible treatments. What really impressed me, however, was that he called me the next morning and told me that he had been concerned about one symptom that did not fit the diagnosis, so he carefully reviewed my X-rays again and found the underlying problem. I feel like this is a level of care that I seldom see anymore: after I left his office, he continued to think about my problem and his concern led him to reassess the data. I am currently pain-free in my foot for the first time in six weeks, and I have confidence Dr. Ta will help me
My son has been seen at the Georgetown location by both doctors, and each visit was pleasant. I was able to get him into an appointment quickly for minor foot issues and back into sports in no time. Both doctors and staff were very humble, down to earth and professional.
