Dr. Oloff is an excellent doctor. I've been seeing her since the late 1980's when I had my bunionectomy which is still in excellent condition. A few weeks ago I sprained my foot walking the dog. it continued to hurt throughout the day despite icing it. I had spent the day in Capitola and at the end of our drive back I called to see if I could get in to see her...the staff was very accommodating and got me in for an exam and x-ray...I wore the wrap and followed instructions and have my foot back for tennis. Thanks Dr. Oloff and team for being so accommondating.

I recently had a procedure done on my toes by Dr. Nix and think very highly of their practice. LG Foot and Ankle Center is clean, the staff professional, and I would highly recommend their services to family and friends. Dr. Nix was very attentive and made me feel very comfortable throughout the procedure. The other staff members were great too! The follow up appointments have been easy to schedule, and I feel like they have a vested interest in my recovery.
